Mubadala, PTTEP Deal for Thai Offshore Blocks

Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Petroleum said it has signed the production-sharing contract (PSC) with its partner PTTEP Energy Development Co. for an offshore block containing the Erawan producing gas field in Thailand.

The current block G1/61 concession will expire in April 2022, and PTTEP Energy Development Co., a subsidiary of PTT Exploration and Production Pcl, will then assume operational control.

PTTEP ED will hold a 60 percent participating interest and Mubadala Petroleum will hold a 40 percent participating interest in the PSC, said a press release.

"Our joint bid in the competitive auction was successful as announced in December 2018 by Thailand’s Ministry of Energy," it said.

Mubadala Petroleum’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr Bakheet Al Katheeri said: “Mubadala Petroleum is proud to be contributing to Thailand’s energy security with our investment in the G1/61 PSC while we also mark the beginning of an important new partnership with PTTEP ED. We look forward to working closely together with PTTEP ED to efficiently and safely produce gas and further develop the Erawan field to safeguard Thailand’s long-term domestic gas supply.

He added: "The Erawan field is Mubadala Petroleum’s first gas project in Thailand, where we are currently one of the largest crude oil operators with three producing fields. This large-scale, long-term producing gas asset will contribute to our overall growth strategy by increasing the proportion of gas in our producing portfolio while also building on our recent gas-focused acquisitions in Egypt and development of the Pegaga gas field in Malaysia.”
