Petronas will delay crude exports from its oil and gas production facility in Sabah by a minimum of three months due to a technical issue.

The delay at the  Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal is due to problems at a semi-submersible platform that links the oilfields to the terminal.

The terminal, located at Kimanis bay,  is a pivotal facility in the Malaysia’s plan to increase crude production and exports offshore oilfields.

Crude exports were originally planned to start in the first quarter of 2014.
