Petronas, which has more than two decades of strategic partnerships in India, is enhancing its business strategy to strengthen and expand its presence in the world’s fastest-growing economy, said its President and Group CEO, Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin, in a press release issued on Thursday.
“Petronas aims to continue to be part of India’s exciting journey and support its sustainable growth ambitions and commitments through further collaborations with our existing partners as well as through new strategic-fit opportunities,” he said.
Wan Zulkiflee, currently on Petronas’ annual official visit to meet with India’s industry leaders and partners, said high on Petronas’ priority would be the expansion of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply in India to help meet the rising demands from the power, agriculture and transportation sectors.
According to the release, Petronas has the added advantage of providing tailor-made solutions across the LNG value chain such as flexibility, engineering expertise and experience in operations management.
