Dateline 2018-06-06, NST:

Sarawak Pakatan Harapan has urged the state government to amend the Petroleum Development Act 1974 (PDA).

Its chairman Chong Chieng Jen said if this was not done, the ownership and control of oil and gas industry in Sarawak would remain with Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas).

He said the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Abang Openg had refused to do so and insisted that PDA was irrelevant in Sarawak.

“He (Abang Johari) has been saying the PDA is irrelevant and claimed that the state has the full regulatory authority over the upstream and downstream aspects of the oil and gas industry, with the establishment of the Petroleum Sarawak Berhad (Petros).
