PETRONAS corporate report

PETRONAS corporate report

Report summary

Prior to last year's oil price crash, PETRONAS was seeking to re-establish long-term growth through an aggressive investment strategy. The company's focus was on new, technically challenging, themes including Floating LNG (FLNG), North American gas exports, deepwater development and a more focused approach to exploration. This strategy is set to remain largely unchanged as the company's strong balance sheet provides protection from lower near-term cash-flow.
