SapuraKencana undertakes contracts from major oil and gas players such as Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and Malaysia's state-owned Petronas.

Two of its major shareholders are President and Group CEO Shahril Shamsuddin and Vice Chairman Mokhzani Mahathir, who both managed SapuraCrest and Kencana before the merger. Mokhzani is a son of former Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad.
