Petroliam Nasional Berhad or more fondly known as Petronas is absolutely synonymous with the Malaysian identity. The green-colored logo is known to be one of the most recognized logos in the country and of all time.
Petronas oil and gas Malaysia
In Malaysia, Petronas is widely considered to be the company that every Malaysian is proud of. In fact, it is a dream of many Malaysians to be employed by Petronas, otherwise known as the national oil and gas company. Established in 1974, it has grown by leaps and bounds to become one of the top companies in the country. Among the accolades given to Petronas by Fortune include:
- Among the 500 largest corporations in the world
- Ranked 75th largest company in 2013 globally
- 12th most profitable in the world

Petronas Twin Towers
The most iconic structure in Malaysia, the Petronas Twin Towers is perhaps one of the most illustrious success not only for the company but the country at large. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, it was once the tallest building in the world and today remains as the tallest twin towers. The government of Malaysia basically owns the entire group where it has subsidiaries which have been performing extremely well in their respective sectors. Among them include:
- KLCC Property Holdings
- Petronas Gas
- MISC Berhad
- Petronas Chemicals
- Petronas Dagangan
Employing more than 50,000 people in the group, Petronas has constantly been regarded and ranked among the top employers in the country. Its share trades extremely well as a blue-chip counter but it is prone to some major movements especially when there are policies and new regulations being passed in government due to the change in administration. After all, it is a fully government-linked company.
