Shell has announced a deep-water gas discovery off Malaysia. Located 135km offshore in Block SK318, the Rosmari-1 was drilled to a total depth of 2,123m and encountered more than 450m of gas column.
The company is planning further exploration and marks the finding as a positive indicator of the gas potential in an area of strategic interest.
Shell Upstream International director Andy Brown said: "We are expanding and rejuvenating heartlands across our exploration portfolio, including in Brunei, Australia and the Gulf of Mexico."
Shell Malaysia chairman Iain Lo said: "This adds to Shell’s sequence of recent exploration successes in Malaysia, with these discoveries expanding the company’s heartlands positions."
Shell owns 85% interest in the Block SK318, while the remaining 15% is held by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.
Block SK318 is located approximately 200km offshore in water depths of 200m-1,000m.
