Najib-linked tycoon Tan Kay Hock eyes entry into lucrative O&G sector

Hey, Puchong! Hey, George Kent (which always reminds me of a cigarette company, don’t know why)

Dateline 2014-08-01, Malaysia Chronicle:

George Kent (Malaysia) Bhd, which is tendering for RM15 billion worth of jobs including those for the mass rapid transit (MRT) line 2 project, is looking to diversify its presence into the oil and gas sector.

Speaking to reporters after the company’s AGM and EGM here yesterday, its chairman Tan Sri Tan Kay Hock  said it is still studying the proposal to tap into the oil and gas industry, but will start with the service engineering segment.

“We want to go into the oil and gas sector, but with the right space and target,” he stressed, declining to elaborate further.

Tan explained however that the oil and gas sector is not a new venture for the group considering that it used to have supply services to petrol pumps around the country.
