When Yazid talks, y’all listen like it’s a Friday khutbah.

Dateline 2021-03-18, Malaysian Reserve:

MALAYSIA Petroleum Resources Corp (MPRC) expects local oil and gas (O&G) services and equipment (OGSE) players to reduce asset ownership this year despite the easing of movement restrictions and modest economic recovery.

MPRC president and CEO Mohd Yazid Ja’afar (picture) said for 2020-2021, it will be a challenging period for OGSE players due to disruption of economic activities which has led to grounding of thousands of airplanes and destruction in demand for oil.

“We expect 2021 to be a slightly better year for the OGSE industry as major economies start to reopen, albeit with strict adherence to Covid-19 standard operating procedures like observing physical distancing, and countries like the UK, US, China, India and Malaysia have rolled out their vaccination campaigns,” he said in a statement yesterday.
