Dateline 2018-01-29, NST:
With the current temporary rise in the crude oil prices – strengthening since the start of 2018, it will be unlikely for the prices to revert to the heady days of USD$100 per barrel, evident from the cautious response of global oil companies.
As such, Malaysian Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC) chief executive officer Datuk Shahrol Halmi said Malaysia oil and gas services and equipment (OGSE) companies should not slow their momentum or lose focus on raising their competitiveness.
“To be more competitive, local OGSE companies should focus on providing economies of scale and integrated solutions,own technologies, employ quality talent, and possess export capabilities,” he said in media briefing recently.
The media briefing was held to share the latest MPRC100 rankings and industry analysis for the financial year ended 2016.
