Malaysia’s top court dismisses Petronas’ bid to challenge Sarawak’s control over oil


Linkbait and the historical record.

Dateline 2018-06-22, Straits Times:

Malaysia’s top court on Friday (June 22) turned down Petroliam Nasional’s (Petronas) application for leave to proceed with its bid to control oil resources and activities in Sarawak state.

National oil company Petronas had last month filed legal papers in the Federal Court seeking a declaration that it is the exclusive owner of the petroleum resources in the country, including in Sarawak state.

This came after Sarawak was granted complete mining rights over its territory in March by the federal government and formed its own oil and gas company, Petros.
