Shell makes deepwater gas discovery offshore Malaysia

Royal Dutch Shell PLC has made a natural gas discovery with the Rosmari-1 well, which was drilled 135 km offshore Malaysia on Block SK318.

The well, drilled to a total depth of 2,123 m, encountered a 450-m gas column. Shell said the discovery is a positive indicator of the gas potential in the area.

“This adds to Shell’s sequence of recent exploration successes in Malaysia, with these discoveries expanding the company’s heartlands positions,” said Iain Lo, Shell Malaysia chairman.

Last month, Sabah Shell Petroleum Co. Ltd. (SSPC) let a contract to Flowserve Corp. for supply of custom designed water injection and liquid transfer pumps for the Malikai oil field project 68 miles offshore Sabah, Malaysia (OGJ Online, Mar. 6, 2014).

Shell operates Block SK318 with 85% interest. Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. holds the remaining interest.
