Workshop on Liberalization of Malaysian Gas Market

Share this post
Objectives:
1. To update the status of gas market liberalization efforts in Malaysia
2. To highlight opportunities in a liberalized gas market
3. To encourage entry of multiplayer participants in the Malaysian downstream gas market.

The Malaysian gas sector is at an interesting cross-road. Today the sector is dominated by players such as PETRONAS, PETRONAS Gas and Gas Malaysia. This is potentially set to change with the introduction of Third Party Access to the pipeline network and regasification terminals where there would be a diversification of supply and with buyers themselves having the opportunity to bring in gas supplies directly. Market liberalization is expected to create significant benefits for suppliers, buyers and consumers, and could spur the development of a vibrant downstream gas sector.
