Pelantar Minyak Gerudi Besar is an offshore rig in Just Cause 2.


West of the Lautan Lama Desert, at X:790; Y:22480. It's the most western rig in Panau.


Do not try to complete this rig before the mission "Black Gold". This will make the mission uncompletable.

The rig is identical to all other offshore rigs in the country and it would have the same importance to complete it, but some things are different.

The first two words in the name are not the same as other offshore rigs. Other rigs start with "Pelantar Gas". It seems like the rig is for oil, not for natural gas and that would explain the name "Pelantar Minyak" which means oil rig in Malaysian. Unlike other offshore rigs, this one will stay a restricted area even after you have completed it. It's also the only rig featured in a mission. The full name means "Large Oil Drilling Platform" in Malaysian.

Nothing is known about the oil production at this rig, but when rigs of this size can produce more than 140,000 barrels a day, then it can be suspected that this rig produces that much. It stands for at least 80% of the total oil production in Panau. Still, the production is too small to serve the country, and the government imports much oil from Brunei.


After the founding of the Panau Barat Oil and Gas Fields, the government did some drilling tests before erecting the two rigs at the place.



  • UH-10 Chippewa on a helicopter landing pad.
  • Oddly, there are actually no boats here.


  • There is one Fuel Depot and one collectible item which do not count towards 100% completion of the settlement.
  • This is the only offshore rig that spawns a UH-10 Chippewa and is featured in a mission. This is also the only rig mining for oil instead of gas.
