Petronas dishes out MCM contracts to Malaysian contractors

Petronas E&P unit Petronas Carigali has awarded a slew of contracts to provide maintenance, construction and modification (MCM) services at its offshore facilities in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak to five local Malaysian contractors.

Carimin Engineering Services, Dayang Enterprise, Deleum Primera, Petra Resources, Sapura Fabrication and its joint venture partner Borneo Seaoffshore Engineering were selected for a five-year contract each with an option to extend another year, effective last September, local media reported.

“Under the terms of the contract, the engineering and maintenance services will include topside major maintenance and facilities improvement projects,” Petronas Carigali said.

Petronas Carigali vp of Malaysia assets and ceo Mohd Jukris Abdul Wahab said new requirements were introduced to encourage collaboration across the industry supply chain.

“These contracts encompass requirements such as the utilization of marine vessels from Malaysia-owned companies only and the mandatory participation of 20% local state service providers to spur value-added services that ensures growth in Malaysia’s oil and gas upstream services industry,” said Jukris.

With 200 offshore platforms in operation under Petronas Carigali in Malaysia, Petronas continues to encourage merit-based participation from local contractors to achieve value-driven production growth for the long-term progress and sustainability of the oil and gas industry.
