Petronas Canada, the Canadian subsidiary of state-owned Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas, has selected GEP Smart procurement software to optimize its source-to-order process.

Petronas Canada has more than 300 employees and is one of the largest natural gas resource owners in the country, with more than 800,000 gross acres of mineral rights with 53 trillion cubic feet of reserves and contingent resources. The firm’s operating base is within the North Montney basin in northeast British Columbia, north of Fort St. John.

Petronas Canada is currently examining the feasibility of building a $1.3 billion petrochemical plant in central Alberta for the purpose of exporting hydrogen to Asian markets. The potential facility would produce ammonia that would then be split into nitrogen and hydrogen at end markets in Asia for use as fuel.

The Canadian firm’s parent company is Petronas, which has more than 47,000 employees globally and is one of the largest oil and gas companies in the world.
