ESTABLISHED BACKGROUND

With an estimates of 98 TCF (Malaysia Energy Statistic Handbook, ST, 2015) gas reserves offshore along the Malaysian coast region, a wide range of industrial opportunities become prominence. Malaysia has entered the Gas Era with the implementation of the PETRONAS owned Peninsular Gas Utilization Project (PGU) in 1984, which benefits the residential, commercial, four-fuel diversification policy also gives a momentum to increase the usage of natural gas. The result of growing gas utilization is the development of private and local companies and legal bodies which are directly involved in promoting this industry

Currently, the number of institutions offering professional training, research development, technical and accredited laboratory services in the gas industry is limited by numbers, thus the existence of organization responsible for coordinating and implementing the technical needs is highly required.
