April 26, 2021

The Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the global platform of the leading gas producing nations, will be hosting the next in its signature GECF Gas Lecture Series tomorrow at 1100 am Doha time.

Featuring Hazli Sham Kassim, President of Malaysian Gas Association (MGA), the lecture is entitled “Collaborative Government-Association Synergy for a Sustainable and Vibrant Gas Industry” and will be the 52nd lecture of the series and the fourth lecture for this year.

Hazli will be sharing with the GECF his expertise about the role of collaboration and cooperation between governments and gas associations in achieving a sustainable gas industry.

HE Kassim has been leading the Malaysian Gas Association (MGA) as its President since 2016. MGA is Malaysia’s leading advocate for the gas industry, playing a prominent role in promoting engagement, discourse, and dialogue with key stakeholders to develop the gas industry and fuelling Malaysia’s socio-economic growth.

Given his extensive exposure and knowledge, Kassim has been appointed as the International Gas Union’s Regional Coordinator for South & South East Asia to strengthen the region’s position in the global gas industry.

Recognising his capabilities, in 2014, Kassim was appointed the Country Chairman for PETRONAS Indonesia, President Director of PETRONAS Indonesia upstream companies, and a board member of the Indonesian Petroleum Association.

This was preceded by his work across several divisions of PETRONAS Carigali, the company’s exploration and production services arm. He is one of the trustees of PETRONAS’ Petroleum Research Fund and was a member of the boards of PETRONAS Trading Company (PETCO) and Trans-Thai Malaysia-Thailand (TTMT).

A member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers since 1991, HE Kassim holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University and completed an Advanced Management Program from Harvard University in 2017.

Since 2014, the GECF Gas Lecture Series has developed from a small and modest attempt to foster dialogue into a reputable platform of excellence – committed to the pursuit of high-quality debate, insights, and service to the gas industry.
