The Baram Delta Basin is located off the north coast of Borneo and straddles the maritime boundaries of Malaysia and Brunei. Historically exploration activity has focused on onshore and shelf oil prospects but these plays are now largely drilled out. Explorers are now targeting deep (primarily HP/HT) gas on the shelf; and the oil potential of the relatively under explored Tertiary deepwater play. Since 2005 explorers have added significant volumes with the average find exceeding 80 mmboe significantly higher than the regional average. Despite achieving above average overall success rates for much of the decade explorers have faced significant challenges commercialising their finds. Many of the outer deepwater finds hold sub economic volumes and a lack of capacity in gas pipelines means that operators struggle to sell gas to the export market.
