The upstream expenditure has doubled in Malaysia in the last five years.

According to Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Associate Director of Energy & Power Systems Practice Subramanya Bettadapura, global demand for oil and gas is projected to increase in the next 3 to 5 years driving demand for material, equipment and services catering to the upstream oil & gas industry in Malaysia.

Other factors driving demand include the increase of Capital Expenditure (Capex) by PETRONAS and the increase in deepwater discoveries in the last five years. "Almost 40% of new discoveries in the last five years are in deepwater. Deepwater projects require more Capex for development," he adds.

He continues, "With output declining from mature shallow water fields, oil prices are set to increase thereby triggering more investment into the upstream sector. Capex planning is strategic for oil companies having long term relationship in Malaysia and so periods of low oil prices do not necessarily suppress expenditure."

There are currently 71 production sharing contracts (PSCs) that are in operation in Malaysia.

"Gumusut-Kakap, Malikai, Kebabangan, Jangas, Ubah Crest, Pisangan, Kamunsu are the deepwater fields that are being developed. Most of these are expected to come onstream in the 2010 to 2015 period," Bettadapura says.

He continues, "Deepwater field development is a major area of activity in the Malaysian upstream sector. SapuraAcergy Sdn Bhd won a contract valued at approximately RM2.80 billion for the development of the offshore Gumusut-Kakap field."

In terms of industry specifics, the development of marginal fields in Malaysian waters and in the region offers plenty of opportunities. Around 90 marginal fields have been identified in Malaysia that can be developed.

According to Bettadapura, technologies that offer a highly cost-effective solution which can bring fields online faster would be the preferred. "The Mobile Offshore Production Storage Unit (MOPSU) is one such technology, if successful in Malaysian waters, can revolutionize marginal fields' development in the region. A home grown Malaysian company, Perisai Petroleum is developing the MOPSU technology," he continues.

Industry trends will see Malaysian companies actively exploring opportunities in the Southeast Asian region and beyond. "Indonesia, Middle East and Africa offer ample scope to Malaysian companies for geographic expansion. Malaysian companies that have honed their skills working on world class projects in Malaysia stand to benefit from the growing opportunities globally," says Bettadapura.

ther hot sub-sectors in the Malaysian upstream sector identified by Bettadapura include material, systems and service to the deep water oil & gas industry; seabed to surface engineering and construction; engineering, procurement and construction; drilling services and material; Brown field services; and marginal field development.
