I was watching TV3 news today (2009-02-16), and there was mention of a new oil & gas hub in Pekan, Pahang. Here’s a link to the New Straits Times. It is called the Tanjong Agas Oil & Gas and Maritime Industrial Park. Investment to create the site was valued at RM2b, with a total investment of RM12b (not sure about this number).
I got confused because Tanjong Agas is also a well known place in Muar, Johor.
Second, Pekan is not what you call the center of the O&G universe. It’s closer to the southern Malaysian oil fields, and can potentially service the Indonesian offshore assets as well.
I wonder if politics had a lot of say in developing a state relatively friendly to the current administration.
If you can point me to who can give me jobs there, thank you.
