Brunei Baram Delta exploration basin

Report summary

The Baram Delta lies off the north coast of Borneo and straddles the maritime boundaries of Malaysia and Brunei. Production is well established in the onshore and shallow water parts of the basin. A number of deepwater oil discoveries have been made within both the Bruneian and Malaysian sector in recent years, and total resource discovered in the Bruneian part of the basin has now reached 7.67 bnboe. A maritime boundary dispute had historically limited deepwater exploration within Brunei. However, in 2010, Brunei and Malaysia reached agreement on the boundary claims, and deepwater drilling recommenced. For Brunei, the deepwater area represents the most prospective acreage to which it can lay claim. The shelf play has been extensively explored, and most future discoveries are likely to come from deeper lying, high pressure/high temperature gas reservoirs. Full details are available for download in pdf and xls format.
