Petronas Energy & Gas Trading (PEGT) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas, serving as the trading and marketing arm for LNG in Malaysia and Singapore. On 26 January 2022, local media reported that PEGT marked the completion of its 1,000th LNG supply via its VPS.

It launched the VPS back in 2020, as a part of its new solution to push for cleaner energy use. The VPS solution delivers liquefied natural gas using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks to off-grid customers.

Mohd Khairuddin Abdul Khalik, the CEO of PEGT, sees the VPS as a reflection of sustainable power advocacy. In addition, he said this milestone demonstrates the stability of the VPS solution, which continues to expand low-carbon energy access.
