There is an organization called the Association of Malaysian Oil & Gas Engineering Consultants, acronym MOGEC. Its stated objective is to

foster a closer relationship among the oil and gas engineering consultants

 If you look the MOGEC members, it seems as if it is a list of big boys in the O&G consulting industry. Now, are the aims of these entities the same as say those who are starting out in the field? They might be focused on:

  • protectionism of their pie.
  • cooperation to improve economies of scales
  • self – interest in tailoring work to suit the Procurement, Construction and Consulting arms of their respective conglumerates.
  • Possibly distributing work to their overseas partners.

What about the smaller engineering companies? They have different things to worry about:

  • Getting work from big boys.
  • promoting their services viewed as niche markets.
  • Promoting their names.
  • Growing specialised services locally.
  • Getting put (and knowing off) the appropriate lists to get on, and people to talk to.
  • Malaysianization of their operations.
  • Access to financial instruments more suited to their scale.

So, do you think that another industry body, which I propose calling MOGSEC, be appropriate, and would it get support?

Don’t get me started on MOGSC (which is pronounced mogs-see).
