ExxonMobil Starts Production from Damar Field Off Malaysia

ExxonMobil Corporation announced the start of natural gas production at the Damar field off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. ExxonMobil subsidiary, ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc., has a 50 percent interest in the project.

The Damar field has a projected capacity of 200 million cubic feet of gas per day. ExxonMobil and joint-venture partner Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. have planned a total of 16 development wells for the platform.

“Damar will help meet increasing natural gas demand in Malaysia,” said Neil W. Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development Company. “It also represents one of several projects that will add to ExxonMobil’s global production in the coming years as we remain focused on delivering profitable volumes over the long term.”

Damar was developed under a gas production sharing contract between ExxonMobil, Petronas Carigali and Petronas. ExxonMobil is the operator of the Damar field and Petronas Carigali holds a 50 percent interest.

The Damar startup follows the previously announced Telok gas development in Malaysia, which began production in March 2013. The projects provide additional gas supplies to help meet Malaysia’s power and industrial needs and promote growth of the country’s natural gas industry.
