NMB Phase 3 Project Achieves First Gas Production

PETRONAS declared that the North Malay Basin (NMB) Phase 3 project in Block PM302, located 290 kilometers offshore Peninsular Malaysia, has recently achieved its first gas production.

Hess Exploration and Production Malaysia B.V. (Hess), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hess Corporation, operates Block PM302 in collaboration with PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd, which owns the remaining 50%.

The NMB Phase 3 project, which is a component of a multi-phase development, was sanctioned in 2019. It also entails the setting up of the new Bergading-B Wellhead Platform, which increases the supply of gas from Block PM302 by an additional 100 MMscfd per day, bringing the overall output to 400 MMscfd.

PETRONAS Senior Vice President of Malaysia Petroleum Management (MPM), Mohamed Firouz Asnan said, “We are pleased that Hess has taken a long-term view of the business in Malaysia across industry cycles, demonstrating confidence in Malaysia’s upstream industry. Together, we have continued to develop the NMB project to unlock the full potential of the block. This is a major milestone for both partners, as the NMB Phase 3 project is key in sustaining Peninsular Malaysia’s gas supply amid rising demand.”

“The close collaboration between Block PM302 parties and their service providers in overcoming challenges during the pandemic delivered this successful completion, which reflects the overall resilience of the Malaysian Upstream ecosystem,” he added.
