Next, Gas Malaysia will accept payment in bitcoins.

Dateline 2017-04-21, The Edge:

Gas Malaysia Bhd through its subsidiary Gas Malaysia IEV Sdn Bhd (GMIEV) has formally commenced its virtual pipeline business following the officiation of its compressed natural gas mother station in Gebeng, Pahang.

GMIEV is a joint venture company incorporated in 2014 between Gas Malaysia — a member of MMC Corp Bhd — and IEV Energy Sdn Bhd. It was created to supply compressed natural gas to customers that are currently not served by Gas Malaysia’s natural gas distribution system network.

In a statement today, Gas Malaysia chairman Datuk Hasni Harun said the company has started to gradually create new demand for natural gas, opening up new avenues of business opportunity.

 “At present, we have commenced supply to our first customer in Pekan, Pahang,” he said.

Unit Gas Malaysia to raise tariff by 6%

August 13, 2016

Dateline 2016-07-04, Asia Review:

Gas Malaysia, partly owned by infrastructure company MMC Corp., is raising natural gas tariff in a move that analysts say will spare utilities from higher costs but may weigh on earnings of manufacturers which uses gas as an input.

The average gas tariff for heavy consumers and commercial users will rise by 6.0% to 27.05 ringgit per one million British thermal unit from July 15, Gas Malaysia said in a stock exchange filing. Selling prices for most residential customers meanwhile remained unchanged.

The increase in the piped-gas tariff will be “positive” in generating cash for national oil and gas producer Petroliam Nasional, or Petronas, while the impact on state-run power producer Tenaga Nasional is “likely to be neutral,” said Fitch Ratings.

From the Star – Gas M’sia gets new PETRONAS deal

July 27, 2010

Please, can someone tell PETRONAS to sell gas at market rates to industries in Malaysia? That’ll teach us a lesson to take our resources for granted.

And Why exactly is MMC making the announcement, not Gas Malaysia?

From the Star, dateline 2010-07-13:

MMC Corp Bhd said its 41.8%-owned subsidiary Gas Malaysia Sdn Bhd has signed a second supplemental gas supply agreement with Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) for an additional supply of 82 million standard cu ft per day (mmscfd) natural gas from the latter.

Gas Malaysia had last August secured a long-term supply of 300 mmscfd from PETRONAS.

“The additional supply of the 82 mmscfd natural gas shall be effective until Dec 31, 2011,” it told Bursa Malaysia.

Since there was a big sign saying no photos outside the hall, I couldn’t take sweeping panoramic shots. On the other hand, I did manage to take photos with some local celebrities.

Newfield’s New Baby

June 6, 2008

Undisclosed sources say that Newfield’s Chermingat has produced first oil, but is undergoing problems typical of all newborns. Does that mean there are opportunities for nannies to help smoothen the transition? Can IGL Process Solutions provide this help?

Chermingat is located in Block PM323 offshore Peninsular Malaysia. She was built by Oilfab, with the engineering services done by MMC Oil & Gas Engineering. Ah, I remember the days when mmogel (such a weird shorthand) was an excellent company to work with. Most of the old and trusted process engineers of now have passed through its doors, passed through being the operative word.
