Johor Petroleum Development Corporation Berhad (JPDC)
Johor Petroleum Development Corporation Berhad or JPDC was incorporated on 9 April 2012 as a federal agency by virtue of being a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Petroleum Resources Corporation (MPRC).

Strategic cooperation and collaboration between both the Federal and State Governments is key in ensuring the success of turning the State of Johor into a Sustainable, World-Class Downstream oil and gas hub.
