IndigoPool, Schlumberger’s acreage trading portal has signed with state oil co. Petronas to promote exploration opportunities in Malaysia. IndigoPool users will be able to link through to the Petronas Company Profile for information on the three main Malaysian producing regions: Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah. It is the first time Petronas has used the Internet for acquisition and divestiture activity. Petronas believes a secure, neutral portal such as IndigoPool will capture a bigger audience in promoting the exploration acreages.
