Sarawak companies can do Petronas’ job, deputy CM says

Do you have to be Sarawakian to work for these alleged companies? If not, where do I get the queue number?

Dateline 2016-06-24, Malay Mail:

Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri James Masing is confident that companies within the Borneo state can take over oil-and-gas production from national oil firm Petronas.

Masing mooted Brooke Dockyard and Engineering Works Corporation as the lead agency, saying the Sarawak-based local firm has gained much experience over the years and is now capable of handling oil mining activities for the state, The Borneo Post reported today.

“With over 100 years of experience, Brooke Dockyard is not a kindergarten institution anymore as it is now a university when compared with the other industry players in the county. Other industry players in the country made it big because they got backup from the big guns,” James was quoted as saying.

“Sarawak owns the oil and gas but Petronas is the one currently using our platform created by Brooke Dockyard. As for now we have many marginal oil and gas reserves in Sarawak and since Petronas is not producing anything from these reserves, I hope to see oil and gas from these reserves produced by the state.”
