Brunei has forged an enduring partnership with Royal Dutch Shell since the discovery of the Seria field in 1929, a relationship that reaches back more than nine decades. The company’s core activities include exploring for and producing oil and gas from onshore and offshore fields for domestic use and export to international markets. These operations are supported by highly skilled professionals working in functions ranging from technically-minded Petrophysicists and Petroleum Engineers through to more corporate staff in Legal, Contracting and Procurement and even Aviation.
BSP is by far the largest oil and gas producer in Brunei Darussalam. BSP supplies 350,000 barrels of oil and gas equivalent every day to countries such as Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Australia and numerous others around the world. It operates an extensive and complex infrastructure on land and offshore. BSP has over 200 offshore structures linked by over 5,000km of pipelines, recovering oil and gas from over 4,500 individual reservoirs produced through more than 800 wells.
From its humble beginnings, Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) now boasts a diverse and highly-qualified workforce of around 4,000 employees and more than 20,000 contractors. To this day, BSP remains as the backbone of Brunei’s economy and a major contributor to the nation’s oil and gas revenue and export earnings, supporting the growth and development of the country.
