Petronas suspends Barakah Offshore Petroleum Berhad (7251:KL) unit’s licence for three years

Petroliam Nasional Bhd has suspended its licence issued to Barakah Offshore Petroleum Bhd’s unit over the non-performance of a contract.

In a statement to Bursa Malaysia on Tuesday, Bakarah said its unit PBJV Group Sdn Bhd (PBJV) received a notification of suspension of the licence from the national oil company.

“The letter from Petronas indicated that there was an adverse report from Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) pertaining to the non-performance of PBJV in relation to the contract relating to provision of underwater services for PCSB. 

“Resulting from that, Petronas has decided to suspend PBJV’s licence for a period of three years with effect from the date of the letter,” it said.

Barakah said following the suspension, Petronas including its subsidiaries and any petroleum arrangement contractors (PACs) will not award any new contract to PBJV during the suspension period. 

“PBJV will not be allowed to bid for new projects undertaken by Petronas including its subsidiaries and any PACs during the suspension period.

“Nevertheless PBJV is still allowed to continue and complete its existing and on-going contracts with Petronas including its subsidiaries and PACs in accordance to the term and conditions of the respective existing and on-going contracts,” it said.

Bakarah said it would seek clarification from Petronas and appeal against the suspension.

A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 3 black candles for a net of 1 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 14 white candles and 16 black candles for a net of 2 black candles.
