The Regional Data Repository (RDR) is an initiative launched by the Malaysia Petroleum Management to further entice the interests of potential investors in Malaysia Exploration Opportunities. The key aspect of RDR is data access without being limited to block boundaries and investors have the privilege to view technical data in broader perspective. In addition to the numerous discoveries that have been located to date, Malaysia basins still hold vast opportunities that are waiting to be explored. Conventional ideas are no longer the primary source in locating hydrocarbon, whereby new ideas and insight are crucial in order to improve the possibility of hydrocarbon discoveries.
Benefits of the RDR:
Complement the interpretation work being performed on block specific opportunities
Simultaneously able to review regional data from 3 regions
Able to identify focus areas for future exploration opportunities based on the regional data review
Able to view seismic data from blocks that are not promoted during the particular promotional round
Investors able to relate data in focus blocks to data from neighbouring blocks
