Continuing my expansion of the above article, I thought I would comment on the map that is displayed in the article.
First thing I would like to point out is that the author says the green and blue line represents an oil transportation system.
At the moment, peninsular Malaysia has no oil transportation system. And there are no plans to have a consumer level transportation system (i.e. from refinery to distribution centre, to being piped into petrol stations and the like).
However, the blue line can be said to represent the Peninsular Gas Utilization (PGU) routing. To quote from the website:
“Through its listed subsidiary PETRONAS Gas Bhd, PETRONAS has since 1984 been implementing the three-phase Peninsular Gas Utilisation (PGU) project, an infrastructure development project to process and transmit natural gas fed from the fields offshore Terengganu to end-users in the power, industrial and commercial sectors. The entire PGU system now spans over 1,700km, comprising main gas transmission pipelines, supply pipelines and laterals.”
That covers the blue pill. Let’s chat about the green pill some other time.
