Office space blues from oil and gas companies


Hey, I was part of the expat (pick your country) nightshift that helped move people into the building.

Dateline 2015-12-29, The Star:

The bleak long-term outlook of oil prices has gotten companies with operations in the Kuala Lumpur city centre readjusting their priorities in line with the situation.

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc is likely to join the list of companies that have embarked on cost cutting measures particularly in terms of office space.

Sources said the company may return several floors of a building it currently occupied in the city centre to KLCC Property Holdings Bhd (KLCCP) once its tenancy agreement expires in January 2017.

The 29-storey Menara ExxonMobil, which is next to the Petronas Twin Tower, has been leased to the company since 1997 and the oil and gas (O&G) giant is looking at occupying up to only half of the building.
