Malaysia's PETRONAS Carigali (Petronas) plans to drill exploration wells at two upper Myanmar onshore blocks in January 2014. It acquired the two blocks RSF-2 and RSF -3 in a 2011 bidding round. Petronas' General Manager Mr. Ahmad Lutipi Haron said "We have already finished early exploration and geophysical analysis and can start drilling exploration wells early next year."
