KUCHING — Aug 18, 2017: National oil company Petronas sees Sarawak as being well placed to become a significant oil and gas hub in the region and is happy to play a key role in realising this vision.

And as a custodian of the nation’s O&G resources, Petronas is committed to work together with the state government to support its growth aspirations.

In making this pledge today, Petronas President/Group Chief Executive Officer Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin  mentioned about the 60 oil and gas- (O&G) fields in Sarawak producing an average of 850,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The O&G sector in Sarawak has since also extended further downstream, with the network of retail fuel stations starting in the mid-1980s.

Wan Zulkiflee today attended the contract signing ceremony between Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. and Brooke Dockyard and Engineering Works Corp.

Since 2010 Petronas has spent nearly RM400 million on education and human capital development and the education development programmes have benefitted over 5,000 Sarawak students and 15 educational institutions.

The Petronas partnership with Brooke Dockyard started 20 years ago. Today two contracts were signed with the company to undertake work on the Bokor Phase 3 Re-development and Anjung gas development projects offshore Sarawak.

The first contract is for the provision of front-end engineering design and detail engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of three wellhead platform for the Bokor project.

The second is for the provision of engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of one wellhead platform and jacket for the Anjung project, 200 kilometres offshore Bintulu. — Bintulu
