I saw this and wondered, what was PCSB Peninsular Malaysia Operations (PMO) doing, giving out press statements? Dateline 2013-04-02:
The RM12 billion petroleum royalty demand by the Kelantan government is not based on any reasonable grounds, said a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) here today.
The statement said the demand not only was unreasonable from the legal standpoint but also technicalities related to activities for oil and gas extraction in the area concerned.
“According to the law, the state of Kelantan, just as the state of Terengganu and all other states in Peninsular Malaysia, only have rights to demand petroleum royalty if extraction of oil and gas is done not more than three nautical miles from the low tide line or the shore of the state concerned,” it said.
