Environmental Studies for Pengerang Energy Complex

Share this post

ESC conducted various Environmental Studies for the construction of Pengerang Energy Complex (PEC), an aromatics plant in Johor, Malaysia.

About the Project

The project aims to become a world-class petrochemical hub that will add value to the downstream oil & gas value chain in Malaysia. Once completed, PEC will be one of the largest and most competitive aromatics plants in the world strategically located in the Pengerang Refinery and petrochemicals hub in Johor. 

To comply with the Environmental Quality (Prescribed Activities) (Environmental Impact Assessment) Order 2015, ChemOne Holdings, the master developer for PEC, must adhere to the local and international regulatory standards. 

Our Approach

ESC was commissioned to conduct various environmental studies based on PEC’s prescribed activities which include

  • Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
  • Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)
  • Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP)
  • Grievance Mechanism (GM)
  • Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP)
  • Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA)
  • Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)


ESC has a strong track record working with leading organisations in the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors within the region. Leveraging our established professional relationships with regulatory authorities, whilst drawing on our deep local and legislative insights, we are able to apply industry best practices and propose mitigation plans to reduce and control the adverse impact of PEC activities on the environment and surrounding community.

    Client Testimonials

    ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

    ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

    Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

    We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.

    I do appreciate the times when ESC was there to help with an open channel and service-oriented communication. Ease of communication is what separates ESC from other consultants.

    We appointed ESC to review all historical data related to our site. They demonstrated a very high level of technical expertise and understanding of the JTC EBS Guidelines which proved invaluable in our response to JTC. ESC was extremely responsive and we are very satisfied with the outcome.
