Gas Malaysia, Petronas sign new agreement

Published: 2012/02/24

KUALA LUMPUR: Gas Malaysia Bhd yesterday signed a new agreement with Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) to supply an equivalent of 492 million standard cubic feet per day (MMScfd) of natural gas.

The 10-year contract will start from January 1 2013, with the option to extend for another five years.

The new deal will replace the existing agreement for a total gas supply of 382 MMScfd, which will expire on December 31 this year.

The contract is aimed at providing a long-term supply security of natural gas to Gas Malaysia's existing customers, the company said in a statement yesterday.

The additional 110 MMScfd will enable it to expand its supply to new customers, it added.

Gas Malaysia was incorporated in 1992 to sell, market and distribute natural gas as well as construct and operate the natural gas distribution system within Peninsular Malaysia. 

It is owned by MMC-Shapadu (Holdings) Sdn Bhd (55 per cent), Tokyo Gas-Mitsui & Co (Holdings) Sdn Bhd (25 per cent) and Petronas Gas Bhd (20 per cent).
