Velesto-INSTEP Drilling Academy (VIDA) – formerly known as UMW-INSTEP Drilling Academy – is a successful collaboration between Velesto Drilling Academy Sdn Bhd and PETRONAS Technical Training Sdn Bhd

The establishment of VIDA is based on the rationale of, addressing Velesto requirement for skilled drilling personal for business expansion, bridging the internal competency gap and succession planning, non-existence of an established drilling institute locally, addressing the shortage of local skilled drilling personnel, and co-branding and relation building with PETRONAS and other oil and gas players.

Velesto Energy Berhad participates in the robust upstream activities of the oil and gas industry through two main activities


  • Our principal activities are the provision of offshore drilling services to the upstream oil and gas sector.

  • We own and operate a fleet of modular and versatile workover units that are well suited for well intervention operations located either on small satellite jackets or large integrated platforms.

Our hydraulic-driven workover units with high pulling capacities are capable of performing a wide range of workover services.
