This amounts to an unravelling of the capitalist system and the disappearance of capital to bring about changes that might alleviate or address climate change or Peak oil. Another way to illustrate the region’s potential is to look at recent changes in production. In the region, only Indonesia has recently made changes to its fiscal regime.

With its 2001 takeover of a Swedish company, Lundin Oil, Talisman added properties in a border area between Malaysia and Vietnam to which both countries had previously laid claim.

And Vietnam and Malaysia are among the lowest-cost areas” per barrel for offshore exploration. Not until after the Indochinese war did the area develop the stability needed for large-scale exploration and development programs. Most of the other countries of the region – Brunei, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and blackballed Burma – also have exploration potential and expanding, lower-cost production. Two of Canada’s heavyweight producers – Talisman Energy and Husky Energy – also have interests in the region. “When the region was drilled in the ‘70s and ‘80s, the development threshold was a field of 50-100 million barrels” because prices were so much lower. They expect to nearly double production from its present daily rates – 40,000 barrels of oil and 175 million cubic feet of gas. The North American Free Trade Agreement is a free trade agreement that keeps the price of oil from Mexico low since it reduces trade tariffs.

Turnkey Drilling and Testing and Completion Contracts, in addition to an Operator Agreement.

The country has land auctions every two years. The two countries reached an accord by agreeing to share production and called it the PM3 Commercial Arrangement Area, and Talisman is now partnering with national oil companies Petro-Vietnam and Petronas.
