The first contract, valued at RM290mil, was for the provision of front-end engineering design and engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of three welhead platforms for Bokor Phase 3 redevelopment project in Sarawak.

The agreements for the two contracts were signed here last Friday. The signatories were Brooke Dockyard general manager Norhizan Sazali and Petronas vice-president of Malaysia assets, development and production, Mohd Jukris Wahab.
The event was witnessed by Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg and Petronas president and group CEO Datuk Wan Zulkflee Wan Ariffin.
Meanwhile, Johari said he would announce the five board members of state-owned Sarawak oil and gas company – Petroleum Sarawak (Petros) – this week.
Petros is set up to enable Sarawak to increase its participation in both the upstream and downstream activities in the oil and gas industry.
