A globally renowned oil and gas player, Malaysia’s PETRONAS pursues innovation and technology to add value.


Within just four decades, Petroliam Nasional Berhad or PETRONAS - has grown from being a Malaysian oil and gas operator to a firm that fuses the sensitivit­y of a national oil company with the mindset, sophistica­tion and competitiv­eness of an integrated oil major. PETRONAS technology covers all stages of the oil and gas value chain. These include technologi­es in the upstream segment like Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), which expands the lifespan of oil fields. Downstream solutions include advancemen­ts in the areas of contaminan­ts removal and the developmen­t of non-convention­al carbon feedstock as future replacemen­t for petroleum-based products. The firm also developed a number of technologi­es that cross both upstream and downstream activities.

Winning Technologi­es

PETRONAS prides itself on bringing the findings of high level research to consumers in its fuels and lubricants businesses. Formula One has become the ultimate testing ground, where the same technology and expertise that power the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 Team are used to enhance PETRONAS products for road vehicles. PETRONAS PRIMAX and SYNTIUM offer superior performanc­e and efficiency to motorists. Another noteworthy project is the constructi­on of the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) vessel (www.petronasof­ located off the coast of Sarawak. FLNG facilities enable the liquefacti­on, production and offloading of LNG to be carried out hundreds of kilometres offshore above gas fields.

Sufficient Energy Supply

The above technologi­es are mere examples of the innovation exerted by PETRONAS. Not only do they showcase the firm as a recognised technology owner and solutions provider, they also redefine the energy industry by continuing to create value through its fully integrated business approach.
