Malaysia’s Petronas hopes to restart its Pengerang refinery-petrochemical complex, a joint venture with Saudi Aramco, by year end, Arif Mahmood, Petronas’ executive vice president and CEO of downstream, said at the Platts APPEC 2021 conference.
The 300,000 barrel-per-day refinery complex in Johor was shut in March 2020 following a deadly fire. The Malaysian state energy firm in February delayed the restart of the complex to the second half of 2021 from the first.

Malaysia’s state energy firm Petronas expects to start offering oil products from its new refining-petrochemical complex in April as the project moves toward full commercial production in October, a senior company official said.
The initial products would not meet commercial specification yet as trial runs are still under way, Arif Mahmood, Petronas’ executive vice president and CEO of downstream, said on the sidelines of the CERAWeek energy conference in Houston.
