Better performance expected in 2H for Malaysia O&G sector

Dateline 2014-07-07, Borneo Post:

Oil and gas (O&G) companies in Malaysia will continue to see excitement ahead in the second half of 2014 (2H14).

The research team at Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd (Kenanga Research) expect to see mergers and acquisitions (M&As) for non-stop exploration and production in the near future.

“We were pleasantly surprised by Dialog Group Bhd’s (Dialog) recent announcement that it had entered into a Letter Of Intent (LOI) to farm into 20 per cent of ROC Oil’s participating interest in the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) for the three fields D35, D21 and J4 fields, located offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.

“No purchase price has been revealed as yet but we will not be surprised if the consideration mirrors ROC oil’s farm-in terms (US$25 million plus a carry with a 50 per cent participating interest of US$80 million for the project spread over Phases 1 and 2).”

In June 2014, PETRONAS achieved a major milestone in its skills development strategy with formal accreditation by IChemE for its internal company training scheme called Accelerated Capability Development (ACD) for Chemical Engineering.

Malaysian Energy Giant Causes Stir Over Need to Move Chinese Graves

September 19, 2014

Ah, I this ties into other info I received.

Dateline 2014-07-04, TWSJ:

State-owned oil and gas giant Petronas is facing an outcry by some southern Malaysians whose ancestors’ graves are being moved from a small cluster of Chinese cemeteries to make way for a $25 billion gas project. One Chinese farmer walked 500 miles to protest.

So far, more than half of the graves have been dug up and moved to a plot of state land, sparking at least nine lawsuits and the walk by farmer Chua Peng San. Eight of the lawsuits have been successful; one is still pending.

The farmer, from Pengerang, a rural coastal area in the southwestern tip of Johor, walked to Parliament and Petronas headquarters, both in Kuala Lumpur.
