Conference Organizer

POSC Caesar Association (PCA) is a non-profit global-standardization member organization promoting the development of open specifications to be used as standards for enabling the interoperability of data, software and related matters. PCA initiated ISO 15926 “Integration of life-cycle data for process plants including oil and gas production facilities” and is committed to its maintenance and enhancement.

Conference Hosts

The conference is being hosted by PETRONAS and the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services council.

PETRONAS was incorporated on 17 August 1974 as the national oil company of Malaysia, vested with the entire ownership and control of the petroleum resources in the country. It has since grown from merely being the manager and regulator of Malaysia’s upstream sector into a fully integrated oil and gas corporation, ranked among the FORTUNE Global 500® largest corporations in the world.

The Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Council or MOGSC was formed on 1st December 2003, as an initiative to establish an association driven entity and to promote the services sector of the Malaysian Oil & Gas Industry. MOGSC is now the premier business forum representing the interests of Oil & Gas service providers with membership of almost 400 companies providing comprehensive coverage to all services sector within the industry.
