Malaysian Petronas operated in Niger between 2003 and 2007, during which time it held a licence to explore the Agadem Block.[1] The company operated in Niger through its subsidiary Petronas Carigali Niger Exploration & Production Ltd. (PCNEPL).[2] It operated the exploration activities on behalf of a consortium in which it held a 50 percent stake, with the remaining 50 percent equity held by ExxonMobil.[3] The group encountered a hydrocarbon show in the Agadem Block in 2005.[2]

Petronas Carigali Niger Exploration & Production Ltd. (PCNEPL) failed to renew their permit for the Agadem Block in 2007 when the concession was awarded to CNPC.[4]
