oil & gas
Malaysia has a well-developed oil and gas sector and a growing petrochemicals industry. The groundwork for the development of the Oil and Gas Industry of Malaysia was laid down when the Malaysian Parliament passed the Petroleum Development Act in 1974. The industry has hence developed to become one of the most important economic sectors of Malaysia.
The energy sector has also taken advantage of the engineering and technological advances and has become a sector of great interest to engineers and entrepreneurs. The country's oil & gas industry has developed from mere production of crude for export to value-added downstream production of commodity and engineering plastics, petrochemicals and fertilizers.
The oil & gas industry is multidisciplinary in nature and constantly creates opportunities for professionals from different academic backgrounds and specializations. The main activities under this sector are:
- Exploration & Production
- EPIC (Engineering, Procurement, Installation, Construction & Commissioning)
Each of the above activities have related sub-processes and activities and what is common among all of them is the fact that they are all specialist functions requiring highly skilled resources irrespective of the size and spot of operations.
