Taken from Reuters, dateline 2010-02-04:
Malaysia, looking to attract foreign investment, vowed to allocate more of its natural gas output to manufacturers but said it could not provide gas to companies starting new businesses in the Southeast Asian country.
International Trade and Industries Minister Mustapa Mohamad said on Thursday that 100 million standard cubic feet of gas per day, or 5 percent of daily output, would be redistributed to non-power industries until 2011.
There goes my dreams of taking Synergy into the manufacturing industry, sigh… maybe I should hook up some plumbing to the business end of cows, and market that as ‘Malaysia’s gas lifesaver!’. I wonder how much methane they produce? Or should I focus on karibau?
