Oil royalty has nothing to do with territorial waters, Zaid tells finance minister

January 7, 2022

Dateline 2021-11-29, FMT:

 Oil royalty payments depend on agreements between states and the federal government and have nothing to do with territorial waters, said former minister Zaid Ibrahim.

The former law minister said this in response to finance minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz’s remarks that there would be no oil royalty payment to any state in the peninsula, including Kelantan.

In a written reply to the Dewan Rakyat, Tengku Zafrul had said although petroleum production was being carried out close to Kelantan, it was taking place outside the state’s waters. He added that Kelantan would continue to receive “wang ehsan” (goodwill payment) for petroleum produced off its coast.

5% oil royalty is the agreement, not ‘wang ehsan’, says Ku Li

January 6, 2022

And history repeats itself, I think it was the exact same quote back then.

Dateline 2021-11-29, FMT:

There is no such thing as the payment of “wang ehsan” (compassionate money) to states under the Petroleum Development Act, says Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, founding chairman of Petronas.

The veteran politician said the agreement between Petronas and the respective state governments was for the oil company to pay the states 5% in cash payments in exchange for them vesting their hydrocarbon or oil and gas rights in Petronas.

There was no mention of any wang ehsan in the Act’s vesting deed, he maintained, while the 5% figure came out of calculations performed by former Sarawak chief minister Abdul Rahman Ya’kub, which was jointly agreed upon by the states and Petronas.

Dateline 2021-11-26, FMT:

The Kelantan state government has expressed disappointment with Putrajaya’s confirmation that Petronas will not be paying any oil royalty to the state.

He said Kelantan would continue to receive “wang ehsan” (goodwill payment) for petroleum produced off its coast.

Kelantan deputy menteri besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said Tengku Zafrul’s announcement, which was published in HarakahDaily, was shocking.

Advantages of Malaysia not exporting renewable energy

December 8, 2021

Dateline 2021-11-18, The Malaysian Reserve (2021 vintage):

THE government is allowing only non-renewable energy (non-RE) exports to Singapore and not allowing private power sales.

There is justification in this as Malaysia could gain by way of foreign direct investments (FDIs), increased job opportunities, competitive advantages and benefits to local RE players.

This decision is both logical and pragmatic as it will benefit Malaysians in what is an environmentally friendly way of living.
