Dateline 2014-09-26, MalaysiaDigest:
An initiative by the Malaysia Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC) to set up a University Pavilion at an oil and gas event to promote direct industry-academia discussion was a success with the participation of six local universities.
This pavilion was well patronised at the three-day Second Malaysia Oil and Gas Services Exhibition and Conference (MOGSEC 2014) which ended on Thursday at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. The event saw hundreds of top executives, including those in charge of recruitment and human capital management, checking out the many booths and display areas.

I paid a quick visit to MOGSEC 2014, and caught up with a few people. Alfameli, yumm.

To the young reporter I coshed over the head to get this transcript, my apologies. The dent will disappear, I promise.
Among the linkbait in this transcript:
The oil, gas and energy sector has long been a pillar of our country’s economy, contributing about 30% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and approximately 40 percent of the country’s revenue. It has been identified as one of the key thrusts in Malaysia’s journey to transform Malaysia into a high-income nation, under the Prime Minister’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
At present, Malaysia (as at 01 January 2013) has approximately 22.2 billion barrels oil equivalent of oil and gas reserves. We are also the third largest gas reserves holder in the Asia Pacific Region (behind China and Indonesia) and ranked 15 among the world’s holder of the natural gas reserves.
The first application of EOR technology is now being implemented at the Tapis oil field, offshore Terengganu. (Wasn’t this supposed to be Angsi?)
To make some money, I have published the transcript here or here. Please buy a copy, so that I can afford to polish my Volvo 244 once every quarter.
