MIRI: A total 15 undergraduate chemical engineering students of Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) recently visited Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd’s (PCSB) Miri Crude Oil Terminal (MCOT) at Lutong to learn more about its facilities, as well as the application of chemical engineering theories and processes in its operations.

The visit was organised by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Student Chapter of Curtin Malaysia, and the students were accompanied by the chapter’s academic advisers, Associate Professor Bridgid Chin Lai Fui and senior lecturer Dr Tan Yie Hua.

Hosting their visit were PCSB Field Operations Executive Kelvin Chong Kai Sing and Field Performance Analyst Mohd. Afiq Abu Kassim.

During the visit the students got to learn about the daily production of wet crude and gas from offshore production platforms located in the Great Sarawak Basin and the hydrocarbon fluid journey from the reservoir to the surface.


According to Assoc. Prof. Chin, such study visits to industrial sites and other student learning activities provide chemical engineering students valuable opportunities to learn outside the classroom setting.

The IChemE Student Chapter of Curtin Malaysia serves to promote the latest developments and advances in the field of chemical engineering among Curtin Malaysia’s students as well as create networking opportunities between students and industry professionals.
