Date: Click quantity: 23

According to media reports on February 24, Malaysia’s National Petroleum Corporation (Petronas) said on Wednesday that it had discovered natural gas in the Dokong-1 exploration well in the production sharing contract (PSC) of the SK417 block.

The company stated that the unpolluted natural gas found in Dokong-1 in the shallow waters of Baram Province off the coast of Sarawak has restored the activities of the Baram Shallow Clastic Rocks.

Petronas said in a statement: "(This) also proves that there is a lot of low-sulfur natural gas in the region."

It said the exploratory well was successfully drilled to a total depth of 3810 meters (12,500 feet) in mid-January 2021.

Mohamed Firouz Asnan, senior vice president of Petronas, said that the company and PSC are conducting further evaluations to determine the full scope of the discovery.

PTTEP HK Offshore Limited is the operator of the block with an 80% participating interest, while Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Petronas, holds the remaining interest.
