The PFLNG 2 project is also a testimonial of our commitment to stakeholders on safety, quality and customer satisfaction, irrespective of the magnitude of the project.” PFLNG 2 will enable the liquefaction, production and offloading of natural gas in the Rotan field, and produce 1.5 million tonnes of LNG each year. The non-propelled vessel will be moored using an external turret. Oilfield supply and services provider KS Energy said in early January that its KS Java Star 2 jack-up drilling rig has been awarded a contract extension to the value of US$3 million. The original US$11.1 million contract, announced in April last year, was won by KS Drilling Operating Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of KS Energy’s 80 per cent subsidiary, KS Drilling. The contract extension is not expected to have any material effect on the earnings per share and net tangible assets per share of the company for the financial year ending Dec 31, said KS Energy. Shell Integrated Gas Thailand Pte Ltd and Thai Energy Company Ltd, affiliates of Royal Dutch Shell Plc, have agreed to an asset sale of their 22.2222% interest in the Bongkot field and adjoining acreage offshore Thailand to PTT Exploration & Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP) and PTTEP International Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PTTEP, for a transaction value of US$750 million. The transaction is expected to complete in the second quarter of 2018, subject to completion conditions as prescribed in the agreement. The agreement is for Shell’s stake in Blocks 15, 16 and 17 and Block 28 January to February 2018
G12/48. Following the completion of this transaction, PTTEP’s stake in Bongkot will increase to 66.6667%, with the remaining 33.3333% owned by Total. PTTEP is the current operator of Bongkot. Shell’s decision to divest remains driven by the company’s strategy to sell non-core assets in order to re-shape Shell into a simpler, more resilient and focused company.
