PETRONAS Licensing – Conceptual and Detailed Design Work


Have you renewed your PETRONAS license recently? There’s been a change which seems to me shouts out ‘grow big or go home,’ and now shuts out small companies from bidding for multi-disciplinary engineering work.

From my point of view, there are two Standardised Work and Equipment Categories (SWEC) categories you need to be registered under to get the above work:

  • SE201010000 – ENG. DESIGN, ARCH. & DRAUGHTING SERVICES -Engineering Design- Conceptual Engineering Design/FEED
  • SE201020000 – ENG. DESIGN, ARCH. & DRAUGHTING SERVICES -Engineering Design- Detailed Design

However, the Minimum Technical Requirements (MTR) are so onerous that you can’t get these categories if you are small and don’t have a multidisciplinary team in your company (us small companies have tie-ups that would be technically capable of executing projects of the appropriate size, but we don’t have a single vehicle that would meet the requirements below).

What do you think? Are you affected by this change?

C’mon PETRONAS, lighten up.
