I”ve been asked to spread the word. Please register soonish, so as you don’t have to line up like the other muggles.
We are looking for exhibitors as well. Give your bosses the 2016 post show report, the brochures for the Sabah and Sarawak Pavilions, SME Pavillion, and most importantly, the forms to book space and sweet sponsorship deals. IGL clients, I am looking at you.
Do come and spend some money. Please.

Apart from a massive Pikachu spawn in the halls, I didn’t get to see much of the exhibition.
If you parse the sentence incorrectly, you wonder why Sharifah is called the First Lady. Is her husband Mr. President now?
Dateline 2016-09-29, NST:
Since it was first held in 2012, the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Exhibition and Conference (MOGSEC) has become a prominent showcase for the local oil and gas (O&G) industry.
Jointly organised by Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Council (MOGSC) and Malaysian Exhibition Services Sdn Bhd, the third edition of the exhibition this year promises another excellent platform for local products and services providers to showcase their capabilities.
The event will also demonstrate the country’s strategic position as a hub for O&G services.
MOGSC first lady president Sharifah Zaida Nurlisha said MOGSEC 2016 is an excellent platform for those in the industry to update themselves on technological front as it will showcase local and home-based expertise, products and services from service providers in the oil, gas and energy industries.
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.
There is an organization called the Association of Malaysian Oil & Gas Engineering Consultants, acronym MOGEC. Its stated objective is to
foster a closer relationship among the oil and gas engineering consultants
If you look the MOGEC members, it seems as if it is a list of big boys in the O&G consulting industry. Now, are the aims of these entities the same as say those who are starting out in the field? They might be focused on:
- protectionism of their pie.
- cooperation to improve economies of scales
- self – interest in tailoring work to suit the Procurement, Construction and Consulting arms of their respective conglumerates.
- Possibly distributing work to their overseas partners.
What about the smaller engineering companies? They have different things to worry about:
- Getting work from big boys.
- promoting their services viewed as niche markets.
- Promoting their names.
- Growing specialised services locally.
- Getting put (and knowing off) the appropriate lists to get on, and people to talk to.
- Malaysianization of their operations.
- Access to financial instruments more suited to their scale.
So, do you think that another industry body, which I propose calling MOGSEC, be appropriate, and would it get support?
Don’t get me started on MOGSC (which is pronounced mogs-see).
