JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corporation has announced that PETROLIAM NASIONAL BERHAD (PETRONAS), the national oil company of Malaysia, has agreed to provide JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia) the oil and gas rights of Beryl Gas Field (Beryl), and approved the Field Development Plan (FDP) for Beryl on 27th October 2017.

Beryl, an already discovered but undeveloped gas field, lies in the shallower zone in the same location as the underlying Helang Gas Field (Helang) and Layang Oil and Gas Field (Layang) in Block SK10, Offshore Sarawak, for which NOMA has been conducting production operation as operator.

The peak production of natural gas from Beryl is estimated to be around 140MMscf/d. The produced gas from Beryl, together with natural gas from Helang and Layang, will be supplied through subsea pipelines to the MLNG Tiga Sdn. Bhd. liquefaction plant in Bintulu, Sarawak. The natural gas will be sold as LNG after liquefaction to its customers, including buyers in Japan.
