  • Description

    HAVING TAKEN ONLY NINETEEN MONTHS TO BUILD, MALAYA'S FIRST PETROLEUM REFINERY HAS JUST BEEN COMPLETED AT PORT DICKSON, IN THE STATE OF NEGRI SEMBILAN, SOUTH-WEST MALAYA, AND IS NOW IN OPERATION.

    THIS NEW SHELL REFINERY, WHICH WAS OPENED ON 25 MAY, BY NEGRI SEMBILAN'S HEAD OF STATE, IS THE MOST MODERN AND UP-TO-DATE OF ITS TYPE, EMBODYING THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN THE TECHNOLOGY OF PETROLEUM PROCESSING.

    COSTING GBP2 MILLION, THE REFINERY HAS BROUGHT THE TOTAL SHELL INVESTMENT IN CAPITAL ASSETS IN MALAYA AND SINGAPORE TO MORE THAN GBP8 MILLION.

    A CONSIDERABLE PROPORTION OF THIS INVESTMENT HAS BEEN MADE IN THE LAST FEW YEAR, A FACT WHICH EFFECTIVELY DEMONSTRATES SHELL'S CONFIDENCE IN MALAYA'S ECONOMIC STABILITY.

    WITH THE STEADY ADVANCE TOWARDS GREATER INDUSTRIALISATION IN MALAYA, WITH RISING LIVING STANDARDS, AND THE PROSPECT OF SECURITY AND INDUSTRIAL PEACE, THERE IS OPPORTUNITY, STIMULUS AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR ALL.
