Petronas takes over Malaysian offshore gas hub from Shell

A unit of Malaysian energy giant Petronas has taken over operatorship of the E11 gas hub, located offshore Bintulu, Sarawak.

Sarawak Shell Berhad operated the hub that produces fuel under the Malaysia LNG production sharing contract for the past 38 years.
