Report summary

Malaysia was the stand-out performer in South East Asia's upstream sector in 2012. It had the region's three largest discoveries, adding 6.3 tcf of gas reserves in shallow-water Sarawak alone, and awarded a record 14 blocks. Discovered reserves across the rest of the region fell by more than 50% year-on-year, despite sustained levels of E&A investment. Indonesia was particularly disappointing, contributing only 14% of new discovered volumes, versus 72% from Malaysia.
