Malaysia May Become Oil Importer by 2009

AP. Malaysia may become a net importer of oil by 2009, absent the discovery of new oil reserves, according to the government.

If so, that would mark a relatively dramatic decline in production. Malaysia’s oil consumption has been growing at a slower rate than its economic output, due to conservation efforts and the conversion of oil-fired power plants to natural gas—which it has in abundance. (Malaysia exported approximately 14% of global LNG in 2003, according to the EIA.)

In 2004, Malaysia produced an average of 912,000 barrels per day, consuming 504,000 and exporting 408,000, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak made the assertion during a speech at the annual congress of Malaysia’s ruling party.

“Malaysia is an oil exporter, but if we do not find new oil reserves, then by 2009, we will become a net importer,” said Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak. “This means we cannot continue to lean on the oil sector.”

According to the DOE’s Energy Information Administration, Malaysia has proven oil reserves of 3.0 billion barrels, down from 4.3 billion barrels in 1996.

Despite the declining oil reserves, however, Malaysia’s crude oil production has risen in the last two years as a result of new offshore development. If we go back to the chart (right) that boost in output can been seen in the increase at the far right of the plot.

Given that, it seems likely then that the Malaysian government has determined (or is concerned) that the surge in offshore oil production is going to be somewhat short-lived.

In the scheme of 85+ million barrels per day of global consumption, 400,000 may not seem like a lot. But when spare capacity is measured at around 1,000,000 barrels per day, losing that 400,000 from the market will hurt. And it will hurt Malaysia’s economy, as it starts paying out, rather than collecting.

(Adding to the pain will be the quality of the Malaysian oil that will be in decline. According to the EIA, most of the country’s oil fields contain low-sulfur, high-quality crude, with gravities in the 35º–50º API range. More than half of the country’s oil production comes from the Tapis field, which contains 44º API oil with low-sulfur content. High-value crude for gasoline, in other words, more easily refined than the heavier, sour crudes.)

To forestall that day, the state oil company, Petronas, is embarked on an aggressive international exploration and production strategy. Currently, Petronas is invested in oil exploration and production projects in Syria, Turkmenistan, Iran, Pakistan, China, Vietnam, Burma, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, and Angola.
