Malaysia at a Glance

On 31 March 2018, SEA Hibiscus Sdn Bhd (SEA Hibiscus) successfully  assumed the role of operator of the North Sabah PSC from Shell. As operator, SEA Hibiscus is responsible for the day-to-day operations, maintenance and conduct of production enhancement activities carried out on the asset.

The North Sabah PSC is our second producing asset, providing us with a further revenue stream after the Anasuria Cluster. It has enabled us to strengthen our technical and operating capabilities, profitability and balance sheet.

The acquisition of this asset is part of our strategy to grow shareholder value by focusing on unlocking potential from mature, late-life oil and gas fields.

After the success of our production enhancement projects of FY2020, we continue to work towards realising the considerable potential within the fields of the North Sabah PSC.
