Petronas - A word from Petronas VP Education…


Siang tadi, aku dapat e-mail dari kawan lama yang bekerja di Petronas. Brother ni, aku kenal masa dia masih bekerja kat SKO dulu. So, masa aku ada project di SKO, aku kenal dengan dia, dan sampai sekarang kekadang kontek ler lagi. Bukan apa, sekarang ni dia dah move dalam bidang yang lain sungguh. Tapi still under Petronas. Kalau dulu dia under engineering, tapi sekarang ni lebih kepada development kat twin tower tu.

Dia ada forward kat aku e-mail ni, yang dia perolehi dari VP Petronas Education. Korang fikirlah sendiri, bagaimana dan di mana kebenarannya. Bagi aku, benar apa yang di katakan oleh Petronas tu, dan orang yang cuba menulis, mengajak untuk boikot itu, mungkin orang luar, yang cemburukan kejayaan Petronas yang dalam masa yang tak begitu panjang, tapi boleh maju dan membangun hingga seperti sekarang ni.

Glossary:
SKO = Sarawak Operation.
SKO adalah singkatan untuk Sarawak Operation bagi Syarikat Petronas Carigali untuk membezakan operasi mereka samada di Semenanjung, Sabah atau Sarawak. Untuk Semenanjung, ia dipanggil PMO (Peninsular Malaysia Operation) dan untuk Sabah dipanggil SBO (Sabah Operation).


Do what you like.

The price of gasoline at the petrol station is set by the Government, not PETRONAS.

PETRONAS has done its patriotic duty by paying the dividends, royalties, corporate tax, petroleum tax etc to the Government for YOUR benefit (rakyat lah).

And bear in mind that 30% of its revenue comes from overseas operations, thus bringing in foreign exchange to the country.

OK. Assuming that you buy this idea proposed by whoever it was. So PETRONAS will have reduced revenues. Bear in mind that the costs of operations are also increasing. So the profits are reduced. Then PETRONAS and other oil companies pay less taxes.

Then the Government will have less revenue. (Note: at least 40% of Government revenue for 2007 came from the oil industry). With less revenue, there will be less Government projects (you can then forget about bridges and highways, and rail tracks, and smart schools and not-so-smart universities, and hospitals, etc). So contractors and consultants, and con-sultans and con-cronies will cry and scream. Makan batu lah..

The Government has already announced freezing of recruitment. So, many new graduates will be unemployed. Makan batu lagi. Maggi mee pun tak mampu dah. Later, all sorts of allowances for civil servants will have to be withdrawn. Treasury tak cukup duit.

On top of that the oil industry may have to scale back many of its new investments, totaling about 45 billion ringgit over the next few years. Contractors, service providers, steel fabricators, maritime service providers etc will join the ratapan tangisan – no jobs.

Don’t forget that PETRONAS is sponsoring thousands of students in universities and even high schools – at any one time there are more than 4,500 university students being sponsored by PETRONAS in Malaysian universities and overseas. Also more than 2,000 high school children receive minor scholarships – children of poor families.

Kalau PERTRONAS tak ada duit, kesian lah mereka di atas tu. Shall I ask them to see the proposer of this idea (to boycott PETRONAS) and seek help from them instead?

So, it is to YOUR benefit that you make sure PETRONAS keeps making enough money to support YOUR Government so that your children can continue to go to school without paying for fees and books, and to go to universities at peanuts rates.

CONCLUSION: Help yourself and your family and your country by making sure that PETRONAS keeps making profits. Go to the nearest PETRONAS station and fill up now!!

Don’t forget that if you go to non-Petronas station, the profits that these companies get will go their shareholders OVERSEAS. So, be patriotic. Do your duty. Go to PETRONAS!!
(I hope you guys will help to send this response to as many contacts as possible to counter this subversive proposal).


E-mail dari seseorang... yang bunyi nya seperti cuba menghasut dan mungkin boleh menjatuhkan Petronas. Tapi, kita fikirkan sendiri implikasinya kepada masa depan. Adakah benar ia membantu?

LET'S JUST DO IT ! ! !

THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' PETROL FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET PETROL BACK DOWN TO RM1.92 PER Litre....

This was originally sent by Phillip Hollsworth, a retired Coca Cola executive.

If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this winter, take time to read this, PLEASE. Phillip offered this good idea.

This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy petrol on a certain day' campaign that was going around last April or May! It is worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

We are going to hit RM 2.70 a litre and it might go higher!! Want petrol prices to come down? We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies just laughed at last year's action because they knew we would not continue to 'hurt' ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.

Please read on and join with us! By now, you're probably thinking petrol priced at about $1.50 is cheap. It is currently RM2.70 for regular unleaded. Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a liter of gas is CHEAP at $1.50, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace... not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the price of petrol come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their petrol!

And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't
just stop buying petrol. But we CAN have an impact on petrol prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY petrol from Petronas the biggest price-up driver company. If they are not selling any petrol, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Petronas petrol buyers. It's SO simple! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions and even BILLIONS of people!!

I am sending this note to 20 people.

If each of you sends it on to at least twenty more that's (20 x 20 = 400) .. And those 400 send it to at least twenty more (400 x 20 = 8000 ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the fifth group of people, we will have reached over SIXTY FOUR MILLION consumers!!!!!
20x20 = 400
400x20 = 8,000
8,000x20 = 160,000
160,000x20 = 3,200,000
3,200,000x20 = 64,000,000
64,000,000x20 = 12,800,000,000
That's 12.80 Billion people folks, who will have been contacted!!!!! Unbelievable?? Do the math and see for yourself!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 20 people. That's all! I'll bet you didn't think we had that much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference.. If this message makes sense to you, then please pass it on.

THEY will LOWER THEIR PRICES TO BELOW THE RM1.92 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK. It's simple ¡Ă± send the message along to others and choose to not buy petrol from Petronas.

TWENTY FIVE POINT SIX BILLION people: Now THAT's people power.

Kmek pelik ko. Bila melibatkan minyak, semua orang kata Petronas sik boleh polah untung byk2 sbb ya hasil bumi milik semua rakyat... tapi kenak sikda org kata tauke balak sik boleh polah utg byk2 juak sbb jual balak pun hasil bumi? Bukan sidaknya pun amik jak balak nok bukan sidaknya tanampun kan?

Yup, ramai org sik tauk, nok harga minyak kerajaan yg set ;) Lgpun, law of economy - the scarcer a resource, the more expensive it becomes. That's why diamond bukan harga 20 sen jak! Hahahaha!

bagi kamek senang ajak... balak, orang sik semua pakei kecuali aweks ajak... tapi minyak semua orang pakei... kalau balak, mahal gine pun, sik ramei orang mok pakei... jadi sidak sik peduli... mahal kah murah...
