Malaysian Refining Company Sdn Bhd (MRCSB), a subsidiary of PETRONAS and a refining site operator with one of the largest capacities in Malaysia announced the renaming of its Melaka Refinery Complex to Melaka Energy Park to commemorate the company’s Pearl Jubilee milestone.

The energy park will focus on further expanding its capabilities to fulfil the needs for cleaner, safer, and more efficient energy, thus proving its presence as a key player in the domestic and global energy landscape to catering to multiple industries including aviation, manufacturing and mass consumer market.

Vice President of Refining, Marketing & Trading, Downstream, PETRONAS, and Chairman of MRCSB, Ahmad Adly Alias said, “As we continue to chart our journey into three decades of success, our commitment to excellence has driven us to look for ways of equipping ourselves with the capability and flexibility to produce various types of petroleum products to meet the energy demands beyond domestic markets.”

Melaka Energy Park contributes significantly to meeting 60 percent of Peninsular Malaysia’s petroleum product demand, boasting a daily production rate of 300,000 barrels. It is equipped with several specialised processing units designed with the flexibility to handle various crude oils from sweet crudes to heavier imported crude oils. The latest addition to the energy park – the DELIMA plant – launched in 2021, can produce EURO-5 Diesel, which has lower sulphur content and lesser toxic emissions, making it a cleaner fuel alternative.

MRCSB Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ahmad Farid Yacob said, “Looking back, there are many dreams that we once thought were far-fetched from our wildest imagination had already been realised throughout so many efforts and the endless commitment from each of us. I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together over the past 30 years, and I am excited to see what the future holds for MRCSB.”
