SINGAPORE -- RH Petrogas Limited' s wholly-owned subsidiary RHP (Mukah) Pte. Ltd. has started the acquisition of approximately 550 line kms of 2D seismic survey in Block SK331 onshore Sarawak. The survey is expected to be completed in November 2014.

RHP (Mukah) is the operator of Block SK331 and holds an 80% working interest in the block. Its partner is Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, which has a 20% working interest and is owned by Petronas, the national oil company of Malaysia which is vested with the entire ownership and control of the petroleum resources in the country.
