Sapura Kencana gets nod to develop B15 offshore gas field (Malaysia)

Malaysia’s SapuraKencana Energy (SKE), has secured Field Development Plan (FDP) approval from Petronas for the B15 gas field, offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.

SapuraKencana will now start the development phase for this project, with the first gas delivery targeted for late 2017.

The B15 field, which was discovered in December 2010, is located within the SK310 Production Sharing Contract (PSC) area, offshore east Malaysia. The development will comprise a central processing platform with a 35 km gas evacuation pipeline to be tied into existing infrastructure. The B15 field is expected to produce 100 MMscfd (million standard cubic feet per day) of hydrocarbon gas for Petronas’ LNG complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

“The FDP approval from Petronas marks SKE’s first development in the upstream gas project in Malaysia. We will continue to pursue future gas development projects from our other successful gas discoveries in Malaysia which is part of SKE’s portfolio today,” said Shahril Shamsuddin, President & Group CEO of SapuraKencana Petroleum Berhad.

SKE via SapuraKencana Energy Sarawak Inc. is the Operator of the SK310 PSC with a 30% participating interest and partners with Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. at 40% and Diamond Energy Sarawak Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation at 30%.
