Shell Malaysia to cut 250-300 upstream jobs

January 18, 2021

Dateline 2021-01-15, Argus Media:

Shell will cut 250-300 jobs from its upstream operations in Malaysia over the next two years, or around 2pc of the current workforce, calling it a necessary change to ensure it is “in a strong position to capture opportunities in the energy transition”.

Shell announced in September plans to cut 7,000-9,000 jobs over the next two years as part of a structural reorganisation to shift towards a low-carbon future.

Most of Shell Malaysia’s upstream staff will relocate to its principal office in Miri in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The firm will continue to maintain an office in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah state for downstream businesses and some upstream support. “There are no changes to Shell’s offshore deepwater operations in Sabah,” it said.


Oil and gas in the new norm

January 12, 2021

Dateline 2021-01-09, The Star:

SINCE the collapse of crude oil prices in 2014, the oil and gas (O&G) sector has never been the same.

First came the shale boom in the United States, creating ample supply and potentially changing geopolitics in the process by making the country less reliant on oil imports.

Another sting to the industry was the heavy debts that players struggled to pay back following the oil price rout that took place from 2014 to 2016.

The O&G industry has also been facing declining demand as more countries adopt cleaner and more environmentally friendly methods to generate energy.

Dateline 2020-12-30, FMT:

A former Malaysian employee of Norway’s largest oil services company Aker Solutions has sued the firm, saying it tried to stop her from speaking to authorities about its business practices, an accusation the company denies.

Seetha Kumarasamy, formerly a legal director with the firm, said in a Nov 20 Kuala Lumpur court filing seen by Reuters that Aker Solutions had sued her in 2018 to suppress evidence and prevent her from speaking out amid a corruption probe into the firm’s dealings with Petronas.

Aker Solutions, in a court filing last week, denied the allegation and accused Seetha of breaching her confidentiality obligations to the firm.

The Energy and Natural Resources Ministry (KeTSA) is introducing the Net Energy Metering (NEM) 3.0 programme to provide an opportunity for more users to install the solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on the roofs of their respective buildings for electricity bill reduction.

Minister Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said NEM3.0 would offer a quota of 500 megawatts (MW) from 2021 to 2023.

The NEM 3.0 programme involves three initiatives – Program NEM Rakyat, Program NEM GoMEn (Government Ministries and Entities) and Program NOVA programme (Net Offset Virtual Aggregation).

All registered Tenaga Nasional Bhd customers in Peninsular Malaysia in the residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors can take part in the programme.

Petronas declared force majeure on two crude grades — sources

December 30, 2020

I didn’t know you could do force majare on a grade. 2020 Uni grads, go find a lawyer!

Dateline 2020-12-24, The Edge:

Malaysia’s Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has declared force majeure on two crude oil grades following production issues, four trade sources said yesterday.

The disruption to Miri and Cendor crude supplies has reduced Malaysia’s oil exports this month and supported spot prices in the region. 

Miri crude production was reduced after a ship hit an oil production platform off Sarawak in late October, the sources said. 

It was not immediately clear when Miri’s output could return to normal.

And the hours seemed to pass quickly with humorous exchanges and banter, but all questions were answered and peppered with facts on the oil company and its direction. It was a frank and good interview.
