Brunei and Malaysia


Shell and the Brunei government are 50:50 shareholders in Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sendirian Berhad (BSP). BSP holds long-term oil and gas concession rights onshore and offshore Brunei, and sells most of its natural gas production to Brunei LNG Sendirian Berhad (BLNG, Shell interest 25%). BLNG was the first LNG plant in Asia-Pacific, and sells most of its LNG on long-term contracts to customers in Asia.

We are the operator for the Block A concession (Shell interest 53.9%), which is under exploration and development and also operator for exploration Block Q (Shell interest 50%). We have a 35% non-operating interest in the Block B concession, where gas and condensate are produced from the Maharaja Lela Field. In addition, we have non-operating interests in deep-water exploration Block CA-2 (Shell interest 12.5%) and in exploration Block N (Shell interest 50%), both under PSCs.


We explore for and produce oil and gas located offshore Sabah and Sarawak under 19 PSCs, in which our interests range from 20-85%.

Offshore Sabah, we operate four producing oil fields (Shell interest 50%). We also have additional interests ranging from 30-50% in PSCs for the exploration and development of five deep-water blocks. These include the Gumusut-Kakap deep-water field (Shell interest 33%) and the Malikai field (Shell interest 35%). Both these fields are currently being developed with Shell as the operator. We began early production from Gumusut-Kakap in November 2012, by connecting two wells to the Kikeh production facility, which is operated by Murphy Sabah Oil. Production from Gumusut-Kakap via a dedicated floating production system is expected to commence during 2014. We also have a 21% interest in the Siakap North-Petai field which started up in early 2014, a 30% interest in the Kebabangan field and a 30% interest in offshore exploration PSC, SB311.

Offshore Sarawak, we are the operator of 17 producing gas fields (Shell interests ranging from 37.5-70%). Nearly all of the gas produced is supplied to Malaysia LNG in Bintulu where we have a 15% interest in each of the Dua and Tiga LNG plants. We also have a 40% interest in the 2011 Baram Delta EOR PSC and a 50% interest in Block SK-307. Additionally, we have interests in five exploration PSCs: Deepwater Block 2B, SK318, SK319, SK408 and SK320.

We operate a GTL plant (Shell interest 72%) adjacent to the Malaysia LNG facilities in Bintulu. Using Shell technology, the plant converts natural gas into high-quality middle distillates, drilling fluids, waxes and speciality products.
