Petrofac signs agreements with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia for top students

Petrofac, the international oil & gas service provider, has signed two memoranda of understanding (MoU) with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).

Under the terms of the MoU, Petrofac’s Malaysia business will offer UTM’s engineering students a variety of opportunities for work placements, participation in knowledge sharing forums and a place on our local graduate engineering programme.

Murugan Pitchai, Executive Vice President for Petrofac’s Engineering, Construction, Operations & Maintenance division in the Asia Pacific region commented:  “Talent development and access to professional resources in our local markets is fundamental for ensuring we have a sustainable long-term business model.  In this respect, UTM’s client charter is completely aligned with our own ethos for personnel development and excellence.  Supported by the extensive experience of our teams in Malaysia, we look forward to developing our relationship further with UTM over the coming months and years.”
