Now Petronas subsidiary is leaving Labuan


Dateline 2017-01-08, Daily Express:

A long-time big player in the oil and gas industry here – Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSD) – has moved its operations to its own supply base at Bintulu Port, Sarawak, effective January 1.

A notice issued by the company advised its service providers and vendors that the delivery point for its materials would now be the East Logistics Command Centre (ELCC) at the Bintulu Port.

Industry sources reacting immediately to the latest development said it was certainly bad news for Labuan but good news for Sarawak which, not long ago, had acted firmly on Petronas to increase Sarawak’s opportunities in its employment.

PCSD had a strong presence here and had helped to raise the profile of the island as a significant oil and gas hub.

The company had been serving as an anchor tenant at the Asian Supply Base (ASB) which has often been described as a fully integrated logistics hub for oil and gas. ASB is a fully Sabah-owned entity and was established in 1985 when Tan Sri Harris Salleh was the Chief Minister of Sabah.
