These are exciting times for the oil and gas industry in Sabah, where it now has much of its supporting infrastructure in place to progress further.
Definitive action taken by the government the last decade or so have allowed the State to become a magnet for major oil and gas industry players to invest and help see major developments pull through.
Local players too have grown by leaps and bounds, not only in numbers but their capacity to undertake major projects dished out by national oil and gas company Petronas or that of other multi-national companies with interest in the industry Sabah.
Sabah Oil and Gas Services Council vice chairman Datuk Albert Boyou said all these happened because of the strong State government commitment, under the leadership of Chief Minister Datik Seri Musa Aman, in the industry which has much to offer.
“There was a time when many did not know about the industry but when we have proactive leaders in the state who want to know, it’s only a matter for them to realise there is much that people can benefit from in oil and gas,” he said.
