As global demand for energy grows in tandem with the rapid growth of population particularly in urban areas, energy players such as the oil and gas (O&G) industry are constantly looking for ways to meet this demand by expanding its portfolio to mitigate the dependability on declining natural resources.

“For Malaysia, the foremost energy challenge lies in meeting rising demand, whilst at the same time domestic production continues to experience natural decline,” Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) chief executive officer Tan Sri Shamsul Azhar Abbas said in Petronas ‘Our Energy Future’ report.

While oil continues to be a key energy resource in Malaysia, its dwindling global supply and volatile global prices have led to the gradual focus on the rich gas resources in the nation.

Gas, according to Petronas, has the potential to be a game-changer for the energy-hungry economies of the Asia-Pacific region as the resource is geographically diffused and environmentally beneficial compared with fossil fuels.
