Sarawak state government to set up oil company


Dateline 2017-06-11, The Malay Mail:

The Sarawak government is planning to establish a state-owned offshore oil and gas exploration company in order to participate in the industry, said Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said the plan was discussed with national oil corporation, Petronas, which was very receptive to the idea of the state-owned company partaking in upstream and downstream oil and gas exploration activities.

“I had discussions with Petronas, we are adopting a new approach.

“Sarawak will participate in both upstream and downstream oil and gas activities.

“In the upstream sector, this will be Sarawak’s maiden venture, as such, we need to set up a state-owned company in order to join Petronas in oil and gas exploration in the South China Sea.
