    Oil City

    by zuyao Updated Mar 22, 2007

    Take a drive on the road from Paka to Kerteh at night. You'll be able to see bright lights and flares from the industries. The entire place looks like some alien spaceship and it's really quite magnificent. If you are headed down south, you'll see some power stations on your left. Down the road as you approach Kerteh, you would see many refineries and petrochemical plants on both sides of the road. Sometimes you can also see a huge fire on the right side of the road towards the end of the Petronas plant.

    Housing Estate for Employees

    Housing

    The employees of Petronas live at the Paka housing estate which was developed by the Company. It is a large estate with a few different designs of houses. I took this picture from the road, so it doesn't look like much. In reality, the houses are attractive, reasonable size and with gardens and good roads. The houses are located within easy reach of the office complex and the golf country club.

    The nearest airport is the Kerteh airport, (which used to be served by MAS) but I believe that it is only used for charter flights now.

    Petronas Refinery

    The Petronas Refinery here is the largest in the Peninsular Malaysia. It is so large there is an entire township built around it. The only other place with this scenery is the town of Miri in East Malaysia.

    The township consists of Kertih & Paka and is self-contained with its own houses, shops, office complex and even a golf country club.

    Have a Look at the Arch

    Paka arch

    Just before the turn off to Kertih Port, look out for the rather impressive arch that is done up in bright yellow (Yellow is the colour of royalty). The words on the arch refer to the Sultan of Terengganu and his Queen, and asks Allah to "watch over/bless" them. (the Malay words used were "Allah Pelihara Al Sultan dan Tuanku Permaisuri Terengganu)
