The Oil & Gas Year Brunei 2015
Brunei’s oil production dipped to 135,000 barrels per day in 2013 from 214,000 a decade earlier, prompting the government to push for more exploration and to maximise production from maturing fields. Co-published with the Bruneian Department of Energy and Industry, The Oil & Gas Year Brunei 2015 follows the implementation of the Energy White Paper, set to fortify the upstream sector and develop downstream businesses.
As Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) is implementing a $5-billion waterflood project at the Champion field, TOGY spoke with Dayang Rosmawatty, the former permanent secretary (upstream) at the Prime Minister’s Office and Andrew Faulkner, managing director of BSP, about field rejuvenation efforts and new exploration activities.
Long a pioneer in LNG, Brunei is expanding its downstream sector through initiatives such as the Sungai Liang Industrial Park and Pulau Muara Besar. An interview with Permanent Secretary of Energy at the Prime Minister’s Office Dato Jamain discusses the government’s moves to attract foreign direct investment in the sector.
This year’s edition includes a special feature on local business development, including a one-on-one interview with Minister of Energy and Industry at the Prime Minister’s Office Pehin Yasmin as well as Rosita Hassan, BSP’s head of supply chain management.
The Oil & Gas Year Brunei 2015 offers the insight of government and industry leaders alongside resources, maps and analysis, making it a valuable guide for potential investors in this petroleum heavyweight.
