Malaysian government, Petronas form offshore security initiative

Dateline 2019-04-05, Offshore:

Petronas has entered a collaboration with the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency to safeguard the country’s offshore oil and gas facilities.

Abdul Jalil Zainul, Petronas’ Head of Strategic Relations said the aim was to avoid incidents such as maritime accidents, encroachment and fish bombings, and potential crises or disasters within the oil and gas operation areas.

“There are close to 300 offshore oil and gas facilities in the South China Sea, with numerous safety and security challenges,” he said, “and most of these threats were found to occur within the safety zone and restricted areas surrounding the offshore upstream installations.”
