Oil World Jobs & Nova Energi Join Forces

1 June 2023

Welcome to OWJ Nova “formerly Nova Energi & Oil World Jobs”

We are please to announce the merger of Oil World Jobs Sdn Bhd and Nova Energi to create an all encompassing Energy manpower and solutions provider. 

Both companies have worked on projects together throughout their history successfully in part to both founders having both a professional and very close personal relationship for over 15 years. 

As Oil World Jobs sdn bhd specialised in the marine, offshore & Onshore Drilling sector and Gelogical sectors and Nova Energi operating within the Engineering, construction, fabrication and commissioning area it made perfect perfect sense to join forces to create OWJ Nova a business that service our client from the inception of an oil field supporting our clients though E&P to providing small to large scale scope of manpower throughout the engineering & build right up to geo survey and ultimately Drilling and first oil (or gas). 


“Myself and Alan have worked incredibly well in the past and were both proud to bring our companies together for a stronger future. Our business both survived the pandemic, although not without huge difficulties and this merger now allows us to service our clients from initial oilfield inception, drilling and oilfields services to manning up the engineering and construction of fixed platforms to floaters including FLNG’s to HUC and right through to first oil. We will continue to work with all existing clients whilst developing new and we look forward to developing our affiliate partnerships around the world to drive OWJ Nova into the future….Together!
