Malaysian oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) is developing a refinery and petrochemical integrated development project (RAPID) and other associated facilities in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia, through a project called Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC).
How PAC is involved in the project
When it came to develop the laboratory-environment, the project was entrusted to OCS GmbH, a renowned systems integrator based in Germany. By working together closely, our sales team was able to meet any standards and expectations put forth by OCS, which resulted in one of the largest single-order deals in recent history.
PAC will provide 63 Gas Chromatography based instruments, marketed under their AC Analytical Controls brand, as well as 40 instruments in Physical Properties testing, represented by PAC’s Herzog- and ISL brands.
The instruments are currently in production across different PAC production sites in Europe. After final testing is complete, they are scheduled to be installed mid 2018 in the all-new, state-of-the-art laboratory in Johor, Malaysia.
About the Project
Southern Johor was chosen as the location for the project due to its proximity to deepwater port facilities and regional demand centres. The complex will cover an area of 2,000ha, and include a crude oil refinery and petrochemical complex capable of processing 300,000 barrels per day (bpd). The project will help Petronas to produce premium petroleum products and speciality chemicals. Demand for such high-value products is increasing, especially in the Asia Pacific region.
The RAPID project refinery will produce gasoline and diesel that will meet Euro 4 and Euro 5 fuel specifications. It will also supply feedstock for the petrochemical complex, which will create highly specialised chemicals. The refinery will use modern technologies to develop these products and follow stringent environmental regulations.The project will enable Petronas to meet this demand for the next 20 years
PAC is very proud to have been selected as the preferred supplier by OCS to supply its leading laboratory testing instruments for this project. For more information on this partnership, please contact your local PAC Sales Representative or complete our contact form.
