Shell, Petronas Sign Contracts For Two Malaysian Oil Projects

JANUARY 16, 2012

SINGAPORE (Dow Jones)–Oil major Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) said Monday it has signed two production-sharing contracts with Malaysia’s state-owned oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Bhd. for enhanced oil recovery projects offshore Sarawak and Sabah.

The two companies had agreed in November to jointly develop the oil fields in Malaysia using enhanced oil recovery techniques, in a project that was valued at $12 billion, Petronas had said then.

The project is expected to help the Malaysian national explorer extract a greater portion of oil from its existing reserves and extend the life of its oil fields.

Associated work activities and new investments from the partners are expected to extend the life of the fields beyond 2040 and lead to increased oil production, Shell said in a statement.
