Lundin Malaysia has signed farm-out agreements with Dutch company DYAS’s subsidiaries for part of its working interests across three production sharing contracts (PSC) in Malaysia.

The agreements will cover Blocks PM328, SB307/308 and gas holding areas in SB303.

Under the agreements, DYAS will get a 20% working interest for paying on certain costs in relation to the upcoming exploration campaign on Block SB307/308 in the Sabah region offshore East Malaysia.

"This facility will allow us to fund the Johan Sverdrup development through to first oil."

The agreement will also see Lundin transferring a 20% working interest in the gas holding area in Block SB303 in Sabah, in addition to a 15% working interest in PM328 in the Malay basin.

Following this transaction, Lundin will own a 65% working interest in SB307/308, along with a 55% interest in SB303 and a 35% interest in PM328.

Completion of the deal is subject to approval from relevant authorities.
