KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Technology Ventures Sdn Bhd has signed a commercialisation agreement with Sumisaujana TCM Chemicals Sdn Bhd to commercialise the former’s proprietary corrosion inhibitor technology called Corrosion Inhibitor 4 (CI4).

CI4, a technology to suppress corrosion in steel pipelines to an acceptable limit, is poised to be an effective solution for the energy industry to facilitate natural gas transportation from high carbon dioxide (CO2) gas fields.

This technology also serves as an enabler for the carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) initiatives specifically in the area of transportation.

Petronas Technology chief executive officer Dr Mahpuzah Abai and Sumisaujana executive director Toh Chee Seng signed the agreement at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference 2021.  Petronas senior vice president of project delivery and technology Bacho Pilong said innovation is the force behind the group’s research and development for technological solutions that tackle the roadblocks to cleaner energy.

“We are proffering our proprietary CI4 as an effective way to address the corrosive nature of high CO2 fields to bring sustainable natural gas supply to the people.

“We are confident that Sumisaujana, with its good track record, capabilities and credibility, will effectively expand the reach of CI4 in the marketplace to benefit our stakeholders and industry counterparts who share the same passion for sustainability,” he added.

Both parties have mutual interests and individual strengths to synergistically develop, manufacture, market, deploy and provide comprehensive solutions to the energy market and beyond.

Semisaujana has collaborative agreements with Petronas’ subsidiaries Melaka Refining Company Sdn Bhd, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd and Pengerang Refining Company Sdn Bhd.

Sumisaujana also manufactured a chemical developed by Petronas Research Sdn Bhd and collaborated with Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd on chemicals development and manufacturing.
