Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg has acknowledged national oil corporation Petroliam Nasional Bhd’s (Petronas) vast contribution to the state’s economy.
He said this was made possible by close ties between the Sarawak and federal governments, as well as between the state and Petronas.
Asserting that the need for the close relations to be maintained, he said the state government would work on a win-win situation with both the federal government and Petronas to derive maximum benefits from the oil and gas (O&G) industry.
The chief minister said Petronas had been successful in its 43 operations and Sarawak was not new in the O&G industry, having been involved in the industry for 107 years, previously with Shell and now with Petronas.
