PETRONAS 50 Homecoming

Continuing a legacy together, for our future.

Our history is a testament to the incredible feats we can accomplish when we work together, united and driven by the unstoppable force of a common purpose.

We have proven time and time again that no challenge is too great, no dream too bold, when we stand together as one. As we embark on the next 50 years, let us draw strength from the trailblazers who came before us, those who dared to dream and refused to be bound by the limitations of their time.

It is the collective hopes, dreams and aspirations that have built the strong foundation we stand on today. Let us uphold this enduring legacy. Let their incredible spirit of progress ignite the spark within us, fuelling the quest of our times and inspire us to continue leaving an indelible mark on history.

History of the Years

  • 31 March 1978

    46 Years Ago Today

    Malaysia’s history as a major LNG producer began with the discovery of substantial gas reserves in Sarawak’s Central Luconia basin, 125 km from Bintulu, in the 1960s. On 31st March 1978, PETRONAS signed a joint venture agreement with Shell BV, Mitsubishi Corporation and Sarawak government to initiate the country’s first liquified natural gas projects.

    The small town of Bintulu in the island of Borneo, Malaysia was selected as an ideal site due to its strategic location and proper geographical condition for developing Sarawak’s first deep sea port, specifically to cater to large LNG ships that will call the port in the future. The Petronas LNG complex is built on an area covering over 276 hectares.

To Build A Nation is to Build its Talents

Since 1975, PETRONAS has been Powering Knowledge for almost 39,000 deserving students by providing education sponsorship. Exposure to learning begins from an early age, therefore it is important to create awareness, encouraging them to immense themselves into science, technology and sustainability.

Discover PETRONAS @Schools is a programme which aims to encourage students to diverse careers paths across the oil, gas and energy sectors besides opportunities for students residing in remote areas. Over 300 youths from various schools joined the programme, that featured interactive career forums and booths, as well as experimental learning conducted by PETRONAS volunteers.

Overall, Discover PETRONAS @Schools is a holistic educational initiative that seeks to arouse curiosity, foster innovation, and nurture talent among school students in Malaysia, ultimately contributing to the country's development and progress in science and technology. Our 50th Anniversary isn't merely a celebration of past accomplishments, it's a resolute affirmation of our dedication to empowering the future leaders of tomorrow.

Fuelled by The People, for The People

PETRONAS’ refinery in Melaka made its first 400,000-barrel crude oil shipment in 1994, a jump-start towards its supply of high-quality Jet A1 fuel to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. With research underway, PETRONAS aims to supply Sustainable Aviation Fuel for Malaysia Airlines with large-scale production set to start in the Pengerang Integrated Complex biorefinery by 2026.

Today, PETRONAS is supporting Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 and its customer teams with advanced sustainable E10 fuel, comprising 10% second- generation non-food-based ethanol, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions overall. PETRONAS is fully equipped with the capacity and capabilities to perfect the technology to produce and supply 100% advanced sustainable fuel for the next-generation of F1 power units.
