In a statement today, it said the agreement covered advisory on technical services, procurement and turnaround as well as critical operations and maintenance support for the landmark Sarawak Methanol Project throughout the project execution and operation stages.
Chairman Noor Ilias Mohd Idris said PGTSSB is committed to facilitate Sarawak’s vision for the state’s first mega methanol plant with the company’s best-in-class technical and project delivery expertise.
“PGTSSB’s local experts are of multiple technical disciplines with rich experience in similar projects in Malaysia and they are able to contribute towards ensuring a sustainable pipeline of technical talents in Sarawak Petchem through knowledge transfer,” he said.
