The Sarawak government is striving to turn Bintulu into a gas industry hub, says Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Openg.
“We have brought up this (proposal) to the federal government (in our quest) to seek the cooperation of Petronas into making Bintulu a gas hub.
“If Pengerang (Johor) can become a refinery hub, we want Sarawak (Bintulu) to be the gas hub, and I have indicated this to Petronas,” he said.
He was speaking at the 1,000,000 Manhours Milestone Without Any Lost Time Injury for the EPC Kinabalu Re-Development Project Ceremony at Muara Tebas here today.
Abang Johari said the oil and gas industry should be centralised in Bintulu (in northern Sarawak) as its infrastructure and surroundings were feasible to cater to the industrial needs.
