The subsidiaries hold 27.5% interest respectively and the remaining 45% interest is held by Santos Sabah Block R (20%) and Petronas Carigali (25%), the exploration and production subsidiary of Petronas, the national oil company of Malaysia.

JOGMEC will provide equity capital up to 50% covering the exploration expenditures incurred by the subsidiaries of JX and Inpex for the project.
