Petronas Gas Bhd (PetGas) is unfazed by competition arising from the liberalisation of the gas market, with an expectation that the implementation of the Gas Supply (Amendment) Act 2016 will benefit the company as its regasification and transmission facilities are open for third party access.
Speaking to reporters after the group’s AGM yesterday, managing director and CEO Yusa’ Hassan expressed his support towards the move to liberalise the gas market.
“Our infrastructure, both regasification and transmission, will open for third party access and that will be supporting the gas ventures downstream with more competitive and liberal supply of gas from different suppliers, which will promote the development of gas and gas-related industries,” he said.
He said it is still in discussions with the Energy Commission (ST) to iron out the details of the liberalisation, adding that PetGas has a one-year grace period to prepare for the various agreements and access codes.
