Local Content Development

As a multinational oil and gas company, we understand the importance of ensuring that extracted oil and gas assets benefit the host nations in which we operate. We respect regulations that require local content and work together with local partners to develop skills and knowledge necessary to spur socio-economic developments.

When possible, we aim for the majority of the employees in our international operations to be host country nationals. Leveraging on our suite of both technical and leadership development programmes, we systematically equip local employees and entrepreneurs to be part of the development of the oil and gas resources of their nation.


This year, PETRONAS celebrates its silver jubilee of its Vendor Development Program established in 1993.

The aim of this program is to build an eco-system of support industry - the Oil Gas Equipment and Services (OGSE) sector, by nurturing local entrepreneurs and strengthening the capability & capacity of local vendors in the sector.

There were a total of 99 VDP appointments since 1993 and to date 21 still remain in the program. Since 1993 until mid-2018, PETRONAS has awarded close to RM9 billion worth of cumulative contract value to 99 vendors of the programme.

PETRONAS has opened up opportunities for entrepreneurs to grow in its upstream and downstream sectors, both locally and globally. Some are now listed in the main board of Bursa Malaysia. Such entrepreneurs have grown from their VDP days to garner market capitalisation ranging from RM180Million to above RM5 Billion
