May 25, 2015

Happy Visit Singapore week. Buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (all 4 books). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me.

  • I’m looking for jobs for 2H2015. Send me y0ur POs.
  • An associate of mine is looking for a well completion engineer, 10 years in the position (no, not position 23b, second variant). Send your CV to me. As per my Facebook posting, idiotic applications, straight to /dev/null.
  • An associate of mine is looking for a technical safety part-time adviser. Needs to be needle sharp with respect to QRAs, and HSE safety cases. A calm demeanor to handle nonsensical questions from young engineers helps as well. Either that, or a drinking problem.
  • An associate of mine is looking for an offshore structural engineer, senior engineer, 5+ years experience, permanent post. Relevant applications + bribery fee can be sent to me, not relevant applications get posted to
  • An associate of mine is looking for a Senior process engineer, more than 5 yr experience in oil and gas industry, for assignment at PPMSB for approximately 7 months. Tentative duration is to start mid May, ends on 31 Dec. Again, I am running a bribery bid.
  • Nothing much in the news.

Support your local bookshop!  Bookalicious at The Summit Subang is a good choice. I think they focus on trilogies, quadrilogies, and other ologies. Tell them I sent you, and enjoy the look of perplexity on their faces. Those of you who have dropped my name, thanks!

Food choice of the week? Go visit the mee bandung / asam pedas stall in front of the Petaling Jaya Police Station (don’t ask).

Seen the Episode VII new trailer? Ff you say “What is episode Vii?”, I disown you.

Russia Ready to Tender for Malaysia’s First Nuclear Power Plant

May 23, 2015

доброе утро

Link to O&G? Replacement industry.

Dateline 2015-04-13, Sputnik International:

Russia is ready to enter a bid for construction of the first nuclear power plant in Malaysia, if it is announced, Russia’s nuclear corporation Rosatom Deputy Director Kirill Komarov said Monday.

Komarov said that Russia is ready to participate in the tender despite the fact that Moscow and Kuala Lumpur do not yet have a nuclear energy agreement.

Moscow can offer cooperation in building nuclear reactors to countries which have plans of nuclear energy development, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, Komarov said. Russian reactors meet all recent upgraded nuclear safety requirements introduced following the 2011 catastrophe at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.

PT Synergy Engineering Bags FEED Contract for East Java’s Lengo Gas Field

May 22, 2015

Hah, first time I see PT Synergy in the public press. Congratulations, Pak Arif and Pak Wong. Yes, nothing to do with Malaysia, overtly.

Dateline 2015-04-13, Rigzone:

Singapore-listed KrisEnergy Ltd. (KrisEnergy or the Company), an independent upstream oil and gas company, announced Monday it has awarded the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the Lengo gas development offshore East Java in Indonesia, and has commenced geophysical and geotechnical surveys at the platform site as well as along the proposed platform-to-shore pipeline route and onshore receiving terminal location.

The Lengo gas accumulation is located in the Bulu production sharing contract (PSC), which covers 269 square miles (697 square kilometers) over the East Java Basin in water depths of 164 to 197 feet (50 to 60 meters). The development plan was approved by the Indonesian authorities in late 2014 and comprises four development wells, an unmanned wellhead platform and a 20-inch, 40-mile (65-kilometer) export pipeline to transport the gas to shore. The Company is in negotiations over gas sales and production is expected to begin approximately 24 months after the joint-venture partners declare final investment decision. The field will produce 70 million cubic feet per day at plateau.

Indonesian-based survey contractor, Java Offshore, has commenced the geophysical and geotechnical surveys and PT. Synergy Engineering was awarded the engineering services contract for the Lengo FEED.


Musa: Sabah in regular negotiations with Petronas

May 21, 2015

Reading the article, I expect the Sabah Exploration and Production Company to be established soon.

Dateline 2015-04-13, Malay Mail:

Sabah actively negotiates with state oil firm Petronas to maximise petroleum income beyond just oil royalty payment, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman told the state assembly today,

Musa said that the state also benefited from active participation in the industry and other equities it holds in Petronas, including a new unexplored oil field off the east coast of Sabah.

“Sabah is in constant discussion with Petronas on how to get more, not only from its oil royalty but also in exploring other forms of profit, including the taking over of a marginal oil field in Sandakan, which has been approved in principle (by Petronas),” he said.
