What are the key market drivers for solutions and services in your region?   

  • Petroleum Demand: The demand for petroleum products in Malaysia is a critical market driver for Flowco’s services. Factors such as transportation needs, industrial activity, and consumer behavior can influence this demand.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Compliance with government regulations and safety standards in the petroleum industry is essential. Changes in regulations can drive the need for services related to safety, environmental compliance, and equipment maintenance.
  • Petrol Station Expansion: If there is growth in the number of petrol stations in Malaysia, it can create opportunities for Flowco to provide equipment supply, installation, and maintenance services to these new locations.
  • Technology Advancements: Advances in technology, such as automated fuel dispensing systems and payment solutions, can lead to a demand for service providers like Flowco to install and maintain these systems.
  • Environmental Sustainability: An increased focus on environmental sustainability may drive the need for services related to fuel quality, emission control, and environmental compliance in petrol stations.
  • Safety and Security: Ensuring the safety and security of petrol station operations is crucial. Flowco’s services may be in demand to address security concerns, fire safety, and emergency response systems.
  • Maintenance and Repair Needs: The aging of existing petrol station infrastructure can create a demand for maintenance, repair, and renovation services, which Flowco can provide via LOB technology.


Why did you become a Leighton O’Brien Licensed Service Partner, and how has the partnership evolved?     

Our enduring partnership with Leighton O’Brien, a technology partner we trust and rely on, has spanned nearly two decades.

This collaboration commenced with a single product but has since grown to encompass a wide array of services.

In fact, our journey began with tank inspections and has evolved to include services such as line testing, SIRA compliance, tank cleaning, fuel restoration and we are currently in the process of introducing Leighton O’Brien’s Fuel Management Platform.

This partnership grew bigger when Flowco decided to become an exclusive license partner for LOB cleaning solutions across Southeast Asia in March 2023.
