Unit Tindakan Khas (UTK) telah mengakhiri era kewujudan mereka apabila termaktub semua perjanjian PSC yang selebihnya. Pada masa mereka merangka dan merundingkan PSC, yang turut tertubuh ialah Jabatan Pemasaran Antarabangsa atau “International Marketing Department (IMD)” bagi mengagih minyak mentah ke pasaran antarabangsa dan Jabatan Pemasaran Dalam Negeri atau “Domestic Marketing Department (DMD)” untuk penjualan bahan petroleum di dalam negeri, khususnya melalui stesen-stesen servis.

Sarawak to give its oil law more bite

September 19, 2018

Dateline 2018-07-04, Malay Mail:

he Sarawak Oil Mining Ordinance 1958 (SOMO) seeks to bar any company or person from building, erecting and decommissioning any mining structure within Sarawak’s territorial boundary, unless authorised in writing by the State Minerals Mining Authority.

A maximum penalty of RM250,000 or an imprisonment of three years or both upon conviction await any person or company who fails to comply with the provision.

This is one of the provisions to be included in the Sarawak Oil Mining Ordinance 1958, which will be tabled for amendments at next week’s sitting of the Sarawak State Assembly.


Petronas’ statement arrogant, insensitive, says Abdul Karim

September 18, 2018

Dateline 2018-07-04, Borneo Post:

The recent press statement from Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) is described as a strongly-worded statement that is both arrogant and insensitive.

In the statement, Petronas maintains its claim over Sarawak’s oil and gas resources; that it has exclusive ownership of the petroleum resources in Malaysia, and that it is the sole regulator of the upstream sector in the country.

Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youths and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said the statement did not bode well with Sarawak and its people, and wondered if this was a new form of colonisation.


IEM Shout Out – 2018-10 Two Day Course on Understanding Process Control For Oil & Gas Production Operators, Technicians And Engineers

September 17, 2018

My technical division will be hosting a 2 day course on the 16th and 17th October 2018. It is worth 13 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Associate Professor Dr. Syamsul Rizal Abd. Shukor, Associate Professor Ir. Dr. Zainal Ahmad and Ir. Dr. John Eow.

The oil & gas production processes (such as sand separation, produced water treatment, seawater filtration, crude oil and gas treatment) require reliable monitoring and control strategy to maintain optimum operational performance. Moreover, process operations are always being affected by disturbances, which negatively affect product quality and cause unplanned process shutdown. Therefore, a good understanding and competency on the major oil & gas production process operations and control are vital for the production personnel. This 2-day course is designed to educate the participants on the engineering design and process control practices in the oil & gas production processes, such as sand separation, produced water treatment, and crude oil desalting.

The course will cover the following major topics:
• Introduction to Oil & Gas Production Processes (such as sand separation, produced water treatment, crude oil treatment, etc.)
• Basics of Process Control
• Process Characteristics: Static and Dynamic
• Final Control Elements
• Controller Algorithm and Controller Tuning
• Single & Multiple Control Loops

Upon completion, the participants will be able to understand the process control fundamentals related to oil & gas production processes.   Moreover, they will have the basic knowledge to apply the process control concepts in monitoring their production process performance, and for better controller tuning to optimize their production outputs.

Petronas maintains that it has exclusive ownership of the petroleum resources in Malaysia and is the sole regulator of the upstream sector in the country.

It said this in reference to a press statement by the Sarawak chief minister’s office yesterday on the state government’s intent to exercise its power under the relevant laws relating to oil and gas activities in the state.

Moving forward, Petronas said it would closely monitor the situation, including seeking views and guidance from the federal government, being the sole shareholder of Petronas, in carrying out its duties.

Sarawak starts exerting control over oil and gas

September 14, 2018

Dateline 2018-07-01, Malay Mail:

The Sarawak government today began exercising its powers over the oil and gas industry, but said it will give industry players until the end of 2019 for full compliance.

A statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office said oil and gas industry players are required to comply with the Gas Distribution Ordinance 2016, Oil Mining Ordinance (OMO) 1958 and Sarawak Land Code (SLC) 1958.

The Gas Distribution Ordinance, which comes into force today, requires all activities related to gas distribution or within the distribution system for supply and delivery to be licensed by the state through the director of Gas Distribution.

These activities include the import of liquefied natural gas into Sarawak, regasification, treatment and the separation and processing.

 


Petronas study awards for 34 students

September 13, 2018

Inspiring.

Dateline 2018-06-30, Daily Express:

Eighteen-year-old school leaver, Randy Philip, had to teach while at the same time study for his Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia exam so he could earn some pocket money to go to school.

Although the Keningau lad comes from a small family of three siblings, he was aware that the hard earned income of his lorry driver father was barely enough, hence his decision to start his own tuition class to help lighten his financial commitment to his family.

“I ran a tuition class for a small group of students who were my juniors. I did it so that my father would not have to worry about giving me pocket money,” he said.

Despite having to teach and study at the same time, Randy scored 9As in the examination last year, an achievement that later earned him a scholarship from the national oil company, Petronas, to continue his studies in chemical engineering at Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) in Perak.

He was one of 34 outstanding school leavers from the state who were awarded the scholarship under the company’s long running education flagship programme in a ceremony held here, Friday.
