PETRONAS Achieves New Gas Discovery in Central Luconia Province

PETRONAS announced its achievement of a new gas discovery from its Cengkih-1 exploration well in Block SK 320 in the Central Luconia Province, about 220 kilometers off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak, offshore Malaysia.

In August 2022, the Cengkih-1 exploration well was successfully drilled to a depth of 1,680 meters, reaching a gas column of more than 110 meters in Miocene Cycle IV/V pinnacle carbonate reservoirs and solidifying additional gas resources in Block SK320.

The block is operated by Mubadala Development Company Oil and Gas Limited (Mubadala Petroleum), which has a 55% participation interest under the Production Sharing Contract (PSC). Sarawak Shell Berhad owns the remaining 20%, while PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd has 25%.

PETRONAS Senior Vice President of Malaysia Petroleum Management, Mohamed Firouz Asnan said, “We are thrilled by this latest discovery in Cengkih-1, building on the string of exploration successes in the Central Luconia region.”

“This latest success was enabled by the close partnership between PETRONAS and its petroleum arrangement contractors in expanding the resource base to meet the rising demand for gas in Sarawak, including the PETRONAS LNG complex in Bintulu,” he added.
