Fossil Energy – Malaysia
Mubadala Petroleum, the Abu Dhabi headquartered international energy company, has successfully commenced the first gas production from the Pegaga gas field in Block SK 320, offshore Malaysia.
This milestone marks the safe and successful culmination of a challenging gas project, during a period in which Mubadala Petroleum navigated the challenges of the global pandemic. As a key strategic development for the local energy sector, Pegaga will be a key producing field supplying gas to Petronas LNG Complex, in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia.
“The Pegaga achievement is a landmark for Mubadala Petroleum,” said Mansoor Mohamed Al Hamed, CEO of Mubadala Petroleum. “Having taken this project from discovery to development and now into production with the support of Malaysia Petroleum Management (MPM), Petronas, our partners and contractors, this demonstrates our deep capabilities, resilience and commitment as an energy provider.”
The Pegaga field is well-positioned to significantly contribute towards sustaining Malaysia’s gas supply for many decades to come, said Petronas Senior Vice President of Malaysia Petroleum Management, Mohamed Firouz Asnan.
