Business Description

Dialog Group offers integrated technical services for the upstream and downstream sectors of the global oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.

Upstream services include drilling, while logistics or midstream services include LNG tank terminals and supply bases. Downstream services are mainly engineering and construction (E&C), and plant maintenance.

Its major E&C projects include the Pengerang Deepwater Terminal for oil and gas storage, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, which will be completed in 2019.

PETRONAS’ (PTG MK) Pengerang Integrated Complex, which has a total storage capacity of 2.8m m3, is going to be expanded in Phase 2 that is now under construction comprising 22 petroleum tanks and a 34-tank petrochemical storage terminal. Phase 3 involves the development of regasification facilities and LNG storage (400,000m3).

Income from downstream tank storage rental and maintenance should remain stable due to less direct impact from lower oil prices.
