The oil and gas industry is now a booming industry and people attrition is really high," Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE) general manager of marketing and sales Manoel Gomes said.
He said the company is losing a high number of people to its rivals and other industries and thus, need to invest in capability development, due to the specialised nature of the jobs.
"It is very worrying, because you know that Malaysian deepwater development is booming now and foreign oil companies such as Shell are entering the local market in the hope of clinching new projects.
"When these oil companies expand their operations here, they are going to draw people from the industry and local shipyards like MMHE can't pay the salaries that the oil companies can pay," Gomes said.

"So from Gemusut, once we do the semisub we will have semisub capabilities and once we have that we can do anything in deep water," MMHE marketing and sales general manager Manoel Gomes told reporters, according to plans to cut steel in January 2007 and deliver it by June 2010.
"We have also started capability development on that, we are sending our guys to Houston, this is all part of our capability development, " Gomes said.

MMHE marketing and sales general manager Manoel Gomes said the expansion plans for the shipyard in the next few years included a RM160 million workshop, which will be the biggest in the region, and also a new bulkhead and dredging at the waterfront expected to cost about RM200 million.
He said there are plenty of jobs for the shipyard and the question was not enough people as the industry was facing a high attrition rate.
In terms of offering better perks, the shipyards could not compete with the oil companies, he added.
Gomes said the problem was faced not only by Malaysian shipyards but also those in Singapore as many preferred to take experienced people from other organisations instead of having human capital development of their own.
He said MMHE was going for the niche market where it could get better margins instead of the mass ship building.
Gomes said that MMHE could not go into normal shipbuilding as the shipbuilders in South Korea, Japan and China could do it cheaper, and with no cluster of supporting industries here, most of the things required would have to be imported., 27 Nov 2006 [cached]
The board has approved about RM160 million for the workshop and about RM200 million for the bulkhead and dredging," its marketing and sales general manager Manoel Gomes told reporters in Pasir Gudang on Nov 27.
We need to expand our steel works capacity, the seafront needs a new bulkhead to load up to 40,000 tonnes, and we need people (and their expertise)," Gomes said.
"This development will be over the next two to three years over two to three phases," he said.
Gomes said Petronas wanted MMHE to be a deep sea centre of excellence and that the company had already got a lot of yard optimisation work done such as, the setting up of a cryogenic workshop.
He said the company's focus had shifted from being a shipbuilder to a company that concentrated on niche projects.
"The margins are much better for niche projects like semi-subs, FPSOs (floating, production, storage and offloading) and FSOs (floating, storage and offloading) but we may consider building ships, provided they are within the cluster of energy projects," he added.
Gomes said the company, which had the facilities to refurbish and upgrade two liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers at a time at its 123ha facility, also wanted to tap into the potential of such a market.
"Normal tankers cost, on average, about RM2 million to repair.LNG tankers cost more.Also, our proximity to Singapore, where a lot of companies have their regional offices, is an advantage," he added.
