Shell Refinery Celebrates 50 Years With The Community

BackFeb 05, 2013

Shell Refining Company (FOM) Berhad (SRC) today paid tribute to the Port Dickson community in the presence of Tunku Besar Seri Menanti of Negeri Sembilan, Tunku Ali Redhauddin Ibni Tuanku Muhriz, as part of activities to mark its 50 years in operations.



The Company has grown progressively since its establishment in 1963, with community acceptance being one of its pillars of success. Earlier, the Royal entourage visited the refinery to look at how the refinery operates. It was a start of the many other chapter of celebration to come throughout the year.

Rozano Saad, Managing Director of SRC, said, "Our objective is to create a positive presence and legacy in the communities and societies in which we operate. We are proud to be a longstanding partner in the Port Dickson community and we strive to be a good neighbour and seek to build committed relationships with our partners."

He added that SRC worked with the communities to ensure that its presence creates a positive impact on the surrounding people, environment and businesses. "Our neighbours such as the residents of Kampung Arab, Kampung Gelam, Kampung Paya, Kampung Hailam (Teck Lin) and Taman Nesa play a very important role in our daily operations. They are the direct beneficiaries of our social investment activities."

Regular engagements with the communities through an open forum are organised yearly to allow for two way communications. During these forums, members of the communities suggest ideas while Shell shares its latest project updates.

"Social investment or Corporate Social Responsibility is high on our agenda. We have partnered with the Port Dickson Residents Association, PD Women Association, PD Rotary Club, Malaysian Nature Society, PDK Curahan Kasih, schools and many more in our community outreach programmes," Rozano added. With Health and Safety being its top priority, SRC provides regular training on basic firefighting skills and equip them fire extinguishers.

Over the years, Shell, and in particular SRC, has created jobs for the locals, imparting skills which have proven to have lasting impact. SRC now proudly has in its employ the second and third generation descendents of former employees.

Rozano concluded, "For this 50 years celebration, it is our wish to be recognised as a positive contributor to the society; an aspiration which we humbly believe we have achieved."

Shell is a global leader in power, energy, and gas technology and is working to meet increasing energy demand and supply challenges by delivering smarter products and cleaner energy, smarter infrastructure, smarter use, and by developing new energy sources while addressing the impact on the environment, through cleaner burning natural gas and advanced fuels and lubricants technology.
