ABSTRACT : Oil and gas industry is inherently risky; filled with constant volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Hence, more than any other industries, risk management is imperative. Risk management which mainly involves predicting the unpredictable of known unknown and unknown unknown, can be treated as an essential element for creating, protecting and sustaining enterprise value in terms of cost, time and quality. However, despite existing efforts to institutionalize systematic risk management within oil and gas industry, the application is still limited. Given such limited application, oil and gas companies are a risk of value loss due to amongst others failure in project deliverables due to cost overruns, delays and sub-standard performances. Therefore, this research aims to investigate the current practice of risk management in the Malaysian oil and gas industry towards strengthening organizational resilience through sustainable value creation and protection. The research expands on existing research on Value-Enhancing ERM and Business Performance Enhancing ERM frameworks. Findings and recommendation from the study which will tap into current Malaysia Oil & Gas players are expected to be of novelty use to the companies in charting their strategy and plan to create, protect and sustain enterprise value.
