No oil in Penang waters, says exco


And a follow on from a previous article. And MOGSC gets pulled in.

Dateline 2017-05-25, FMT:

There is no oil in Penang waters, an exco man told the state assembly today, following a DAP rep’s suggestion to halt reclamation and rely on possible oil reserves in the state’s waters for revenue.

Chow Kon Yeow (DAP-Padang Kota) said based on data from a petroleum industry study, there was no oil discovered in the waters of Penang.

Pointing out to an “Oil & Gas Map – Malaysia”, released during a petroleum industry convention in Kuala Lumpur in 2009, he said most of the oil was discovered on the east coast of Malaysia.

“Based on the National Oil and Gas Industries Body 2009 report published by the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Council, there is no oil in Penang waters,” Chow said in winding up his debate of thanks to the governor’s address today.
