Malaysia is set to enhance its crude oil recovery from its maturing oil fields through the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) technology using its own expertise in petroleum engineering.
Works are already underway to implement EOR at the Tapis oil field located about 200 kilometres off Terengganu that produces extra-light and low-sulphur crude oil.
Tapis is one of seven mature offshore fields that ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc. (EMEPMI) and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) have agreed to develop as part of a 25-year production-sharing contract that was finalized in 2009.
The EOR is a major engineering milestone for the country as local companies like SapuraKencana Petroleum Bhd and Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Bhd (MMHE) are involved in fabricating the jacket and deck respectively.

Dateline 2012-04-28, and I’m being paid too low…
The government of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak launched the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) in September 2010 with the ambitious goal of doubling income per person to $15,000 to reach developed-nation status by 2020.
The ETP aims to consolidate Malaysia’s oil and gas (O&G) offshore fabricators to become more competitive regionally. OSK said this could benefit Kencana Petroleum Bhd (>> Kencana Petroleum Berhad) and Malaysia Marine of Heavy Engineering Bhd (>> Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engnrg Sdn Bhd), the remaining two listed larger fabricators. Offshore services firms such as Bumi Armada (>> Bumi Armada Bhd) are seen gaining from investments in the energy sector.
