Petronas Carigali, Anyone?


Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) was established as a wholly-owned entity of Petronas, the national oil company. Its main purpose of existence is to drive and facilitate the Exploration and Production (E&P) activities for the company.

In other words, PCSB is tasked with the provision of locating oil and gas reservoirs for Petronas. PCSB started its E&P activities locally with its first successful oil finding recorded in 1982 in the Terengganu offshore, and many years later Petronas decided to go abroad and set up Petronas Carigali Overseas Sdn Bhd in 1990.

PCBC is one of those many subsidiaries and associated companies, with the holding company Petronas involved in wide range of upstream and downstream oil and gas businesses. As you have probably known by now, Petronas is wholly owned by the Malaysia government, and is the first and only Malaysian company which is ranked among Fortune’s 500 largest corporations in the world. Today, the company operation spans across 25 countries worldwide, mainly in Asia, Africa and Middle East.

Petronas CarigaliIn August 2004, Petronas Carigali created history when it drilled the country’s longest development well. The well, drilled at the Angsi oil and gas field in the Terengganu offshore, reached a total of 6.34km depth. The Angsi field project was a joint venture between Petronas Carigali and ExxonMobil Exploration, with each having 50% interest.

Of course, with that being said, the company is not doing the exploration and production work on its own. It outsources the engineering, construction and commissioning work to assist their work and the money involved is no small amount. This month alone, March 2008, Petronas Carigali contracted Dialog Group Sdn Bhd to carry out engineering and commissioning work worth RM1.6 billion in value. The scope of work involves the EPCC (engineering, provision, construction and commissioning) of more than 500km natural gas pipeline and associated facilities between Sabah and Sarawak.

At all time, the machineries involved in the exploration and production activities need to be in tip top conditions. Otherwise, both efficiency and results will be compromised and you will have one angry boss. The operation of the machines and equipment also need to be in compliance to the stipulated standard and specification. As such, in-house Mechanical, Electrical, Process, Instrument and Control are needed to ensure works are carried out in a proper order, and this is where you may be able to fit in.
