Combining the Strengths of Two World Class Leaders to Serve the Southeast Asia Oil & Gas Industry
Mustang Sime Darby Sdn Bhd offers a unique opportunity to the Malaysian oil and gas market. The new company provides project management, design and procurement support services from its regional hub in Kuala Lumpur and is the result of combining strengths of two well-established world leaders in the energy industry - Mustang and Sime Darby. Mustang’s successful track record of delivering engineering and project management of major oil and gas projects, particularly deepwater, coupled with Sime Darby’s well-established presence in Malaysia, its familiarity with the regional market and immediate base of resources for project work, provides a source for design and project management capability that is recognised around the world for its quality and efficiency.
Mustang is one of the world’s leading oil & gas engineering and project management companies, providing project management, conceptual, FEED and detailed engineering, and construction management services. Mustang brings a track record of successful worldwide deepwater project delivery. Iconic projects include Mad Dog, Thunder Horse, Atlantis, Tahiti, Blind Faith and Agbami (FPSO). In addition, Mustang is a leader in delivering large, complex onshore oil & gas, refining, and petrochemical projects and is a leader in LNG technology. With operations on almost every continent, Mustang employs 4,200 people around the world.
Mustang is backed by the resources of its parent company, Wood Group. Wood Group is an international energy services company with approximately $US5.0 bn sales, employing approximately 29,000 people worldwide and operating in 50 countries. The Group has three businesses—Engineering & Production Facilities, Well Support*, and Gas Turbine Services—providing a range of engineering, production support, maintenance management and industrial gas turbine overhaul and repair services to the oil & gas, and power generation industries worldwide.
Sime Darby Energy & Utilities, part of the Sime Darby Group (one of Malaysia’s largest listed companies with a revenue in excess of $US10 bn), has core businesses that include oil & gas, engineering services, water management, ports & logistics, and power. The Energy and Utilities Division has a global workforce of over 6,000 people throughout Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and China.
With core competencies in engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC), Sime Darby Engineering operates a combined yard space of 298 acres – one of the largest fabrication yards in the region, with an annual production capacity of 140,000MT per annum.
Mustang Sime Darby will initially focus on upstream projects, and as the company grows, will expand its market reach and serve major Malaysian and regional clients in the upstream onshore/offshore, midstream, refining and petrochemical markets.
A number of key positions are staffed from within Mustang operations and additional design and project management and support staffing will be hired locally to achieve the company’s growth targets and anticipated work load.
Gary Wilkes serves as the Managing Director of Mustang Sime Darby. Prior to moving to Malaysia, Gary was a project manager in Mustang’s upstream business unit, managing large capital offshore and onshore facilities for major operators.
Aminuddin Yusoff serves as Deputy Managing Director. Aminuddin brings considerable experience from running Sime Darby’s existing engineering operations.
