Shell announces new gas discovery in Malaysia

The discovery at Marjoram-1 in 800 metres of water in block SK318, follows the discovery of gas last April in the same block at the Netherlands group’s Rosmari-1 well.

Shell upstream international director Andrew Brown said: “Our strategy to expand our heartland areas through technologically advanced exploration is delivering tangible success in deep-water in Malaysia.”

Brown said: “We have a long history in the region, and the addition of new natural gas resources this year ensures we are able to continue to provide cost-effective, reliable, cleaner energy options for the future.”

Block SK318 is operated by Shell with an 85% stake. The remaining 15% is held Petronas Carigali International Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Malaysian government-owned Petronas group.

Rosmari-1 was drilled to a total depth of 2,123 metres, encountering more than 450 metres of gas column, Shell said. The group did not give an estimate of the size of the Marjoram discovery.

According to the Malaysia Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC), Malaysia has to date some 28.35 billion barrels of oil (BBOE) reserves and about 1.2 per cent of the world’s natural gas reserves (2.35 trillion cubic metres) of proven reserves. Malaysia has a current production rate of 730,000 barrels per day of crude oil products.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
