PETRONAS Awards Multi-Client Programs in Sarawak Basin to Seismic Consortium


OSLO, Norway (26 October 2020) – The seismic consortium comprising PGS, TGS and WesternGeco has been awarded a multi-year contract by PETRONAS through competitive bidding to acquire and process up to 105,000 square kilometers of multi-sensor multi-client 3D data in the Sarawak Basin, offshore Malaysia.

This contract award follows an ongoing campaign by the consortium in the Sabah offshore region of Malaysia, awarded in 2016, in which over 50,000 square kilometers of high-quality 3D seismic data have been acquired and licensed to the oil and gas industry to support Malaysia license round and exploration activity.

The Sarawak award will enable the consortium to position itself in Malaysian seismic exploration and allow for a multi-phase program to promote exploration efforts in the prolific Sarawak East Natuna Basin (Deepwater North Luconia and West Luconia Province).

“We are very pleased to have received this good news from PETRONAS through Malaysia Petroleum Management,” said Nathan Oliver, PGS Executive Vice President Sales & Services. “Since this same consortium also acquiring multi-client data offshore Sabah, we have demonstrated the benefit of the multi-client business model to the Malaysian authorities and provided the oil and gas industry with high-quality seismic data in this prolific hydrocarbon basin. With this new award, we are able to expand the multi-client coverage into the Sarawak region to increase exploration and enhance production activities.”

Rune Eng, TGS Executive Vice President, International said, “With this exciting project award, the consortium will play its part in encouraging and enhancing future exploration in Malaysia, enabling E&P companies to participate in the acquisition of high-quality modern 3D seismic data on a cost-effective regional basis.”

“The consortium will continue to use the latest technologies to accelerate discoveries in the Sarawak offshore basins,” said Rajeev Sonthalia, president, Digital & Integration, Schlumberger. “Modern data will be used both to enhance existing production assets and develop new play concepts in areas where legacy data has failed to provide the insight needed to find new opportunities with a high degree of confidence.”

The consortium is planning the initial phases and is engaging with the oil and gas industry to secure prefunding ahead of planned acquisition, covering both open blocks and areas of existing farm-in opportunities. Interested parties should contact the constituent members of the consortium for further details.

DFDS: Partnership aims to develop hydrogen ferry26.11.2020 10:00:29 CETPress release

Investor news no. 27/2020 DFDS and its partners have applied for EU support for development of a ferry powered by electricity from a hydrogen fuel cell system which only emits water. Green hydrogen is to be produced by a projected offshore wind energy-powered electrolyser plant in Greater Copenhagen. A group of companies have partnered up in order to develop a 100% hydrogen powered ferry for initially DFDS’ Oslo-Frederikshavn-Copenhagen route. The ferry will be powered by electricity from a hydrogen fuel cell system that emits only water and can produce up to 23 MW to propel the ferry. “The largest fuel cell systems today produce only 1-5 MW, and the development of such large-scale fuel cell installations for an electric ferry is a monumental task. We can only succeed in partnership with companies that bring together some of the globe’s finest expertise in design, approval, building, financing and operation of innovative vessels,” says Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS. The partnership commi

DFDS: Partnerskab sigter på udvikling af brintfærge26.11.2020 10:00:29 CETpressemeddelelse

Investor news nr. 27/2020 DFDS har sammen med sine partnere ansøgt om EU-støtte til udvikling af en færge, der drives af elektricitet fra et brintbrændselscellesystem, der kun udleder vand. Grøn brint skal produceres af et projekteret offshore vindenergidrevet elektrolyseanlæg i Storkøbenhavn. En gruppe virksomheder har indgået et samarbejde om at udvikle en 100% brintdrevet færge, som udgangspunkt til DFDS’ rute Oslo-Frederikshavn-København. Færgen drives af elektricitet fra et brintbrændselscellesystem, der kun udleder vand og kan producere op til 23 MW for at drive færgen. ”De største brændselscellesystemer i dag producerer kun 1-5 MW, og udviklingen af ​​sådanne store brændselscelleinstallationer til en elektrisk færge er en monumental opgave. Vi kan kun lykkes i partnerskab med virksomheder, der tilsammen råder over noget af verdens fineste ekspertise inden for design, godkendelse, bygning, finansiering og drift af innovative skibe, ”siger Torben Carlsen, administrerende direktør
