Decision on gas pipeline within two months: Ongkili

Dateline 2015-08-17, NST:

A decision on the proposed gas pipeline from Tuaran to Sandakan will be made by the government in two months, said Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili.

The proposed pipeline is expected to connect to a 380Mw gas-fired power plant in Sandakan and improve power supply at Sabah’s east coast if the project is approved.

Speaking to reporters at an international energy gathering here, Ongkili said the Economic Council has approved the idea which will allow districts along the way such as Kota Belud, Kota Marudu and Beluran to tap on the gas source.
