The PIPC sits on a 20,000-acre piece of land in Pengerang, in Malaysia’s Johor state. The PIPC is designed to accommodate downstream oil and gas industrial facilities such as refineries and petrochemical plants, deep-water terminal and storage tanks, naphtha crackers, regasification plants and supporting facilities, as well as manufacturing plants and industrial parks.

To be developed in phases, the PIPC covers both core and non-core downstream activities. Included in the PIPC master plan are designated areas for related support services such as a plastic and fine chemicals park, a light and medium industrial park, a waste management center, an emergency response center, a logistics hub, a commercial hub and others.

 The striking attraction of the PIPC lies in the robust design of the PIPC master plan that strives to enable and promote future growth and sustainability, by offering a wide spectrum of investment opportunities targeted at downstream oil and gas players.

The subdistrict of Pengerang in Johor thrives as a downstream oil and gas industry hub, with investment worth billions of ringgit as a result of brilliant strategies introduced by Johor Petroleum Development Corporation Berhad (JPDC).

JPDC, a subsidiary of Malaysia Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC), has a big hand in the development of the Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC).

The complex situated in Pengerang, which sprawls over 8,093 hectares of land, is an integrated hub with an investment potential of RM221 billion (US$52 billion). Its facilities include liquefied natural gas (LNG) and petrol storage tanks, petrochemical plant, regasification plant, refinery, power plant and facilities to decompose naphthalene.

“JPDC is optimistic that it will attract more investment to PIPC,” said its chief executive Mohd Yazid Jaafar.
