Saturday Star 2017-03-11 – Job Opportunities

March 13, 2017

Happy Wata  IEM VP and Council Candidacy. Vote for me, and spread the word, wilya? IGL has pivoted into training, so book your seats now.

We’re thinking of republishing Young Turks of PETRONAS, but it’s a minimum 500 book printing run. Do I have enough interested persons to purchase?

Donate to your favorite charity (me), buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (3 books until I can get YTP republished). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me, my camera dive case flooded, and I need a new replacement. Heck, if you want to send me a Canon 5D Mk III plus dive case, I will not say no.

  • I have a feeling that The Star isn’t the preferred O&G job recruitment portal now. I see more adverts via social media. What do you think, is it a step change that the papers need to embrace?
  • ExxonMobil Engineering Global Support is looking for Advanced Control Engineer, Chemical Engineer, Chemical Engineer (Butyl), Control Systems Engineer, Heat Transfer Engineer, Instrumentation Engineer, Licensing Technical Support Engineer, Machinery Engineer, and many others. Looks like downstream is the place to be. Register at http://www.exxonmobil.com/careers/my and visit the career fair at Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, London. Though if you can afford that, why you applying?
  • I’m looking for jobs for 2Q2017. Send me your POs.

Food choice of the week? I would suggest visiting Cicerello’s, Freemantle. Sponsor my flight and accomodation, so I can go there as well.

Seeing that Joe Dever has passed away, you may want to revisit his books:

Flight from the Dark (Lone Wolf, Book 1), Legends of Lone Wolf Omnibus 1, War of the Wizards (The World of Lone Wolf, Book 4)


Office space blues from oil and gas companies

January 29, 2016

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.

Happy Rain Week. Donate to your favourite charity (me), buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (all 4 books). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me, my camera dive case flooded, and I need a new replacement. Heck, if you want to send me a Canon 5D Mk III plus dive case, I will not say no.

  • ExxonMobil Research and Engineering (EMRE) is looking for people. Visit the website.
  • I’m looking for jobs for 1Q2016. Send me your POs.
  • An associate of mine is looking for a technical safety part-time adviser. 2 Associates, actually. Needs to be needle sharp with respect to QRAs, and HSE safety cases. A calm demeanor to handle nonsensical questions from young engineers helps as well. Either that, or a drinking problem.
  • Nothing much in the news. Were you expecting jobs galore? Has The Star dropped out of favour? I see more job adverts on the facebook private groups.

Support your local bookshop!  Bookalicious at The Summit Subang is a good choice. I think they focus on trilogies, quadrilogies, and other ologies. Tell them I sent you, and enjoy the look of perplexity on their faces. Those of you who have dropped my name, thanks!

Food choice of the week? Hmm.

Seen the Episode VII trailer? Booked the theater? If you say “What is episode Vii?”, I disown you.

During these trying times, perhaps you should focus on self improvement. The following are a good set of books to start automating your uncertainty budget tables.

ExxonMobil Starts Gas Production at Telok B Platform Off Penisular Malaysia

June 11, 2015

Dateline 2015-05-12, Rigzone:

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, announced recently the startup of natural gas production from the second phase of the Telok gas development project, the Telok B platform located off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

The Telok development consists of two satellite platforms – Telok A, which started up in 2013, and Telok B. Both platforms combined are capable of producing more than 450 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas.

The Telok field was developed under a gas production sharing contract between ExxonMobil, as the operator, PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PETRONAS Carigali), and PETRONAS to help meet demand for natural gas in Peninsular Malaysia. ExxonMobil and PETRONAS Carigali each hold a 50 percent interest in this project. Telok is one of several upstream investments announced under Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme in 2011, which saw ExxonMobil and PETRONAS Carigali invest more than $2.76 billion (MYR 10 billion) in new oil and gas assets to help ensure reliable and sustainable energy supplies for Malaysia.

ExxonMobil starts Tapis field enhanced oil recovery project

November 27, 2014

I see SKY has been promoted to ExxonMobil President, congratulations.

Dateline 2014-09-12, The Malaysian Insider:

In a statement today, ExxonMobil said the operations would start with water-alternating-gas injections from the recently-installed Tapis R central processing platform into targeted wells on the existing Tapis A platform.

Its president, See Kok Yew, said the project exemplified ExxonMobil’s leadership in technology application and global project execution excellence to maximise reserves recovery from producing fields.

The Tapis EOR project is one of several oil and gas investments announced in January 2011 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as part of the country’s Economic Transformation Programme.
