Petronas-MMEA collaboration forges watertight safety-security of offshore oil-gas facilities

KUALA LUMPUR, April 1 (Bernama) -- Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) has collaborated with the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) to enhance the safety and security of Malaysia’s offshore oil and gas facilities.

This is aimed at elevating the safety and security of Petronas’ facilities in Malaysian waters to prevent maritime accidents and thwart encroachment and fish bombing, as well as potential crises and disasters within the oil and gas operation areas.

In formalising the collaboration, Petronas was represented by Malaysia Petroleum Management, head of Strategic Relations & Advisory, Governance & Strategic Relations, Abdul Jalil Zainul.

MMEA was represented by its deputy director-general (operations), Vice-Admiral Datuk Mohd Zubil Mat Som, at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace 2019 (LIMA’19) recently.

Under the collaboration, both parties will also look at ways to improve the search and rescue operations in the event of an emergency within the parametres of the facilities.

An outreach programme for the communities and fishermen residing along the Malaysian coastal areas has also been established to create awareness on the dangers of fishing at restricted areas surrounding the offshore oil and gas facilities.

The collaboration will also be supported by other government agencies including the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia, the Royal Malaysian Navy, Royal Malaysian Air Force, Royal Malaysia Police and the Marine Department of Malaysia.
