- Contracts include operatorship of both licences
- Addition of more contingent resources to the Group’s portfolio
- Development and production concept to be modelled on successful implementation in Oman
Rex International, a technology-driven exploration and production company, has announced that together with its Malaysian partner, Duta Marine Sdn. Bhd. (DMSB) it has signed two Production Sharing Contracts ('PSCs') awarded earlier by PETRONAS, Malaysia’s national oil corporation. These PSCs are related to the development and production of the Rhu-Ara and the Diwangsa Clusters located in offshore Peninsular Malaysia. The Rhu-Ara Cluster contains two (2) discovered oil fields and the Diwangsa Cluster contains four (4) discovered oil fields. The Clusters are awarded following the Malaysia Bid Round 2020. The new PSC terms under the Small Fields Assets ('SFA') includes an up-to-two-year pre-development phase followed by a two-year development and a ten-year production period.
The participating interests of Rex and DMSB are 95% and 5% respectively with Rex being the operator of the PSCs.
Mr Dan Broström, Executive Chairman of Rex International Holding, said:
'Rex is very pleased to have been awarded two PSCs in Malaysia and looks forward to working with PETRONAS to rapidly and cost-effectively develop the resources contained within the Clusters. Over the next two years, our focus will be on the pre-development phase of the Clusters. The anticipated production will further grow the Group’s production and reserves base. We will leverage on our experience in Oman, where we have proven to be an effective operator, to make these assets a success.'
