Abstract: The March 2009 boundary and territory agreement between Brunei and Malaysia is reviewed. The agreement, in the form of an exchange of letters, has not been expressly made public. However, the governments of the two states have disclosed sufficient information to assess the agreement, intended to resolve four matters: (i) the settling of maritime boundaries between Brunei and Malaysia; (ii) the establishment of a joint petroleum development area off Borneo known as a “Commercial Arrangement Area”; (iii) the initiation of a frontier survey to define the boundaries of Malaysia’s Limbang district nearly enclaved between Brunei’s two separate land areas; and (iv) the resolution of transit rights for the nationals of both states through inshore maritime areas. The history of maritime claims in the area is reviewed and the prospects for continuing seabed development considered.
