The company is looking at high growth areas like Klang Valley, Penang and Johor to launch the petrol stations, according to the official.

PetrolWorld reported Mr Samad as saying that Petronas Dagangan is also planning to open several hyperstations across Malaysia. These hyperstations will reportedly have post offices, restaurants and convenience stores.

Mr Samad, as quoted by PetrolWorld, said: We want to offer customers more than just a petrol station. Hence, we are on the lookout for land big enough for us to open these hyperstations, as space is our constraint. The investment for each hyperstation would cost more than MYR10 million.

PetrolWorld noted that the Malaysian oil firm already operates one hyperstation in the Klang Valley and one in each of the Kuala Lumpur suburbs of Pahang and Langkawi.
