Cameron and Natco – A Cosy Family

April 11, 2010

Here’s some old news I only heard recently. To quote from the website:

Cameron acquires NATCO and integrates NATCO with Petreco to create Cameron’s Process Systems, the industry’s Total Solution Provider.

Hmm, I haven’t heard of Process Systems, so either it reaaaally isn’t the industry’s TSP, or I’m way behind on reading my trade paper subscriptions.

Now, Cameron has offices in Malaysia which are PETRONAS licensed. So, I wonder how the Scomi Natco tie-up via Scomi NTC is going to proceed?

Then again, Cameron provides valves to UOP, a competitor to NATCO, so I guess companies will jump in bed with whoever provides the most pleasing outcome.

Here’s how I perceive the services provided by the companies mentioned above:

  • Cameron – Wellhead equipment
  • NATCO – Separation solutions
  • Scomi – hmmm, I have had no technical dealings with them. Though it does crop up in the news for other reasons.
  • UOP – Separation solutions

Saturday Star 2009-07-11 – Job Opportunities

July 13, 2009

Another week, another scan of the Saturday Star newspaper. Here’s a list of job ads in the paper:

  • First off, Synergy is looking for 5 lead safety engineers and 3 lead process engineers. Visit the Synergy website for contact details. And safety specialists. Ah, heck. If you have more than 5 years experience in O&G, apply. If you have less than 5, send a donation to the offshore account, and still get abuse.
  • If you want to “meet all challenges head on,” SBM  is looking for a principal eng (FW, marine, elect, inst, telecomm), senior (static eqt), intools eng. Send email here.
  • Isee UOP‘s got an office in Malaysia. Maybe I’ll get quicker responses from them.
  • Turboservices is looking for a project test eng. Send email here.
  • There’s an advert for a Singaporean company, Rotary. They want a assistant/project eng. Send email here.
  • Deleum is looking for senior engineers and engineers-customer service. Send email here.

Sigh, since I have moved with Synergy out of KL, will you patronise Chee Meng in my memory? Or invite me to meetings around Bukit Bintang at lunchtime? Is he doing packet specials?

Maybe I should change loyalty to Pakeeza, which is a bit closer to the office.
