MAF and Petronas Signs ‘Helideck Landing Training On Offshore Facilities’ Term of Reference

KUALA LUMPUR, 8 February 2022 – The Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) and PETRONAS have further strengthened cooperation between the two agencies through the Helideck Landing Training On Offshore Facilities (HLTOF) Terms of Reference Signing Ceremony at Wisma Perwira MAF, today.

The ceremony signed the terms of reference which was officiated by the Chief of Staff of the Malaysian Armed Forces Headquarters (COS MAF HQ), Lt Gen Datuk Mohd Zakaria bin Hj Yadi, representing the MAF and Senior Manager of Safety, Health and Environment Governance, Malaysian Petroleum Management, Encik Azrul bin Abdul Hamid representing Petronas, is a collaboration in terms of the implementation of MAF helicopter landing exercises on Petronas’ oil rigs.

The operability of MAF helicopters in conducting landing exercises on the oil rig can enhance the MAF’s ability to monitor and control the security of national waters as well as increase capabilities in the conduct of Maritime Operations, Medevac, Casevac, Search And Rescue and Maritime Air Surveillance.

In 2013, Petronas agreed to the MAF’s proposal for the use of the helicopter landing site and allowed MAF aircraft and the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) to conduct landing exercises on the Mothball-status Shiva Oil Rig. The landing exercise was conducted in 2014 and ended in 2016.

In 2021, the Chief Executive Officer of Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd in his Courtesy Call on the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Defence has suggested that the landing exercise be resumed. Following on from the proposal, the MAF has been mandated to review and improve the terms of reference of the landing exercise together with Petronas.

Also present at the ceremony were the Assistant Chief of Staff for Defense Operations and Training, Lieutenant General Dato’ Hashim bin Aman Shah, Senior Officer of the MAF, MMEA, Ministry of Defence Malaysia and a delegation from Petronas.
