Malaysia Restricts Foreign Gas Station

And I thought it was hard to open a non-Pertamina gas station in Indonesia… any station owners want to comment on this article?

VIVAnews, dateline 2010-4-27:  – Setting up gas stations in Malaysia is apparently not as easy as it is in Indonesia, who lets every multinational oil company opens up new stations. It is difficult for PT Pertamina to establish a petrol station in Malaysia, just like Petronas did in Indonesia.

“Applying for a permit to build a gas station in Malaysia takes three years,” Pertamina Marketing and Trade Director Djaelani Sutomo said in Jakarta on Tuesday, April 27.

    There aren’t a single soul in the Petronas’ station in Jakarta.

    Imagine, premium sold at Rp4900 in Pertamina. In petronas/total/shell its minimum Rp 6200.

    I am not that patriotic.
