Petronas makes new gas discovery offshore Malaysia

12 Jan 2022

Petronas Carigali (PCSB), a subsidiary of Petronas, has made a new gas discovery in the Balingian Province, offshore Malaysia.

The discovery was made at the Hadrah-1 wildcat exploration well of Block SK411, located in the shallow waters of Balingian Province, nearly 170km northwest off the coast of Sarawak.

Hadrah-1 was the third gas discovery for the Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas in Balingian Province in 2021, after Sirung-1 and Kulintang-1.

Drilled to a total depth of 1,850 metres, the Hadrah-1 well encountered gas within an approximately 200-metre thick sequence of high-quality sandstone and carbonate reservoirs.

PCSB is the operator of Block SK411, with 90% participating interest in its production sharing contract. E&P Malaysia Venture owns the remaining 10% in the block.
