I have been reliably informed that SOGEC is not related to MOGEC, or MOGSC. Lesson learnt: go register trademarks before someone beats you to the punch.

The government has done much to ensure people in the four oil and gas producing states in Malaysia are actively involved in the sector.
Sabah Oil and Gas Services Council vice chairman Datuk Albert Boyou said a review of the royalty would do no harm but there is more that can be tapped from the industry.
In Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman has been instrumental in pushing for greater participation in the oil and gas sector through Petronas as well as provide opportunities for more people in the state, he said.
“Previously this was hardly the case and opportunities in the sector were hard to come by,” he said adding this was evident with the development of the many major projects that came since Musa took office in 2003.
Key developments in the state include Sabah Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) which has attracted RM11 billion in investments, Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT) in Kimanis as well as the 500km Sabah, Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSGP) that links Bintulu, Sarawak.
