Business in Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) company of oil and gas company is continuous process and therefore the supplier selection is also dynamic in nature. This research investigates the supplier selection criteria based on the four categories; meet specification, cost, timeliness and company background for EPCC company of oil and gas supply chain. This research focused on the supply chain of Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn. Bhd. (MMHE), which is one of the largest EPCC company in Malaysia. The research involved 540 respondents from various departments in MMHE. SPSS version 21 is used to analyse the data through descriptive and correlation analysis between the supplier selection criteria.

Suppliers are then evaluated and compared with each other based on the supplier selection criteria using AHP again to make the optimal selection.
