The coronavirus pandemic is expected to slow the development of the Apsara oilfield located at Cambodia’s offshore Block A of the Khmer Basin in the Gulf of Thailand, which is being developed by Singapore-based KrisEnergy Ltd.
Ministry of Mines and Energy’s General Department of Petroleum director-general Cheap Sour told The Post on Monday that the global epidemic was slowing progress, but the company is currently still developing the project.
“The company is still working hard to get the job done, but it’s difficult for the company due to the Covid-19 predicament. Even sending technicians to the minimum facilities platform construction has proven difficult and operations at the site have stalled,” said Sour.
