PTTEP Sabah Oil Limited, a Malaysian subsidiary of the Thai oil company PTTEP, has awarded a six-year contract extension for the FPSO Kikeh, operating in deep waters offshore Sabah, Malaysia.
The charter extension news was shared this week by Malaysia's MISC, which is a partner in the vessel owner Malaysian Deepwater Floating Terminal (Kikeh) Limited, together with SBM Holdings Inc. S.A. (SBM). MISC and SBM own 51% and 49% of the equity in MDFT, respectively.
