Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, Prime Minister of Malaysia said the Oil & Gas industry remains volatile despite an anticipated recovery in crude oil prices with expected increase in both upstream and downstream activities.

“It is therefore crucial that Malaysia continues to highlight its potential in the Oil, Gas and Energy (OGE) sector while keeping up-to-date with the latest innovation and technology to strengthen its position. This will not only strengthen Malaysia’s position as a strong oil and gas nation, but also a competent OGE leader, especially in the Asian region,” said Tun Dr Mahathir.

Speaking in support of the Asian Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering Exhibition (OGA), Tun Dr Mahathir further highlighted the exhibition’s role in promoting the OGE industry in the region.

“In these testing times when the Oil & Gas industry is on a rebound, OGA is a timely and effective platform to highlight the nation’s and region’s potential in oil and gas. It should also help in positioning Malaysia as the regional hub for O&G innovation,” added Tun Dr Mahathir.

Billed as the region’s largest Oil & Gas show, the highly anticipated OGA 2019 will involve 2,000 participating companies from 60 countries/regions and 11 international pavilions. Over 23,000 trade and professional visitors are expected to converge at the event for deliberations on the industry’s challenges and opportunities.

OGA 2019 is open to professionals, trade and business visitors at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm on 18 & 19 June 2019 and from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm on 20 June 2019. For more information and to register, visit www.oilandgas-asia.com.
