Malaysia's state-oil firm Petronas has discovered oil in the Samarang-Asam Paya production sharing contract (PSC) area offshore eastern Sabah state. Tests carried out on the Alab-1 well flowed oil at a rate of 4,700 bpd. "The discovery is currently being evaluated and further exploration activities, including new seismic data acquisition and appraisal drillings are planned," Petronas said. It said that due to its proximity to the facilities of the Samarang oil fields, Petronas is targeting an early commencement of the development and production of the new field.
