Malaysian state energy firm Petronas is seeing growing demand for gas as the world lifts COVID-19 restrictions and prioritises energy security due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, its chief of upstream operations told Reuters on Wednesday.
Petronas, the world’s fourth-biggest producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG), has seen high demand from Europe, Japan and South Korea since last year, said Adif Zulkifli.
“We are producing the maximum that we can now. There’s a lot of requests for more cargoes in Bintulu,” said Adif, referring to Petronas’ massive LNG complex in the eastern state of Sarawak.
“To increase production is not as easy,” because of under-investment in recent years, he said.
