Asia-Pacific Region Yields Gas For Petronas
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 31 (UPI) — Malaysian energy company Petronas said Thursday it made new
discoveries of natural gas in Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.
Petronas said it confirmed a natural gas discovery off the coast of Sarawak, a state on the island of Borneo. While working with its Malaysian affiliate, Mubadala Petroleum, the company said it encountered a gas column measuring 810 feet while drilling in shallow waters.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration says Malaysia holds the third-largest deposits of natural gas in the region. More than half of its estimated 83 trillion cubic feet of proven natural gas reserves are off Sarawak.
