The state government has approved the setting up of a Sarawak Oil and Gas Committee to monitor the involvement of local entrepreneurs in the oil and gas industry.
Assistant Minister for Industrial Development (Investment and Promotion) Datuk Julaihi Narawi said the state cabinet gave its nod last month, and Minister of Industrial Development Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan would chair its first meeting soon. At the same time, he revealed that his ministry will have a new unit – Oil and Gas Unit.
“This committee is formed to monitor the involvement of local players in the oil and gas industry. This is because Sarawak has many industry players in the sector and we want them to play a more active role in the industry compared to before,” he said when met at his Hari Raya open house at his home at Taman Heritage here yesterday.
