Since the acquisition of Block SK10 in 1987 the project has been one of NOEX's key operations. JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia), NOEX's subsidiary acts as operator in the block and has been involved in the ongoing exploration and development of the block, and the production of natural gas from the block. The natural gas produced from the block, along with the natural gas produced from Block SK8, offshore Sarawak, which we acquired in 1989 is exported in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to various countries including Japan. In December 2007, April 2008, January 2012, September 2013 and December 2013 respectively, we acquired onshore Block SK333, offshore Block PM308A, Deepwater Block R, Deepwater Block 2F and Deepwater Block 3F, where we are now conducting exploration activities.

Full LNG Chain from Exploration and Production of Gas to Marketing

Full LNG Chain from Exploration and Production of Gas to Marketing

The natural gas produced from the two blocks offshore Sarawak is transported through subsea pipeline to the liquefaction plant in Bintulu, Sarawak, owned by Malaysia LNG Tiga Sdn. Bhd., where it is liquefied to liquefied natural gas (LNG). JX Group has a 10% interest in Malaysia LNG Tiga Sdn. Bhd. and by participating in the full LNG chain of the exploration, development and production of natural gas through liquefaction and marketing of LNG, JX Group is contributing to the stable supply of LNG to various LNG consuming countries, including Japan. Moreover, NOEX started exploration activities in Block SK333, Block PM308A, Deepwater Block R, Deepwater Block 2F and Deepwater Block 3F, searching for new reserves.

LNG: Useful Fuel and Suitable for Transportation and Storage

LNG is a form of natural gas consisting chiefly of methane and is liquefied by refrigeration to minus 160 degrees Celsius after impurities such as water, sulfur and carbon dioxide have been removed. By liquefaction, the volume of natural gas is reduced to 1/600, allowing LNG to be transported and stored efficiently. In Japan, LNG is primarily used by power companies for power generation and by city gas companies for gas supply to the local market.
