Malaysia confident of resolving issue of natural gas tax at JDA border


Dateline 2017-11-02, The Star:

Malaysia is confident that Thailand’s intention to impose tax on natural gas produced by Petronas at the border of the Joint Development Area (JDA) fields in the Gulf of Thailand can be resolved.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan said the natural gas produced by Petronas outside the JDA should not be taxed as it was not being used in Thailand even though it was sent for processing in Songkla before being transported to Bukit Kayu Hitam.

He said the natural gas produced was only “on transit” in Songkla as it was channelled through the same pipeline, and 100% of it was sent to Malaysia.
