Malaysia’s national oil company Petroliam Nasional Bhd. plans to double its capital expenditure to 60 billion ringgit ($14 billion) this year from 2021, as business activities normalize following the lifting of Covid-era restrictions.

Many of its projects were delayed due to the pandemic and “there’s a lot of catch-up that’s happening this year,” Group Chief Financial Officer Liza Mustapha said in a conversation with MIDF Group’s Managing Director Charon Wardini Mokhzani on Thursday.
