Dateline 2018-07-01, Malay Mail:
The Sarawak government today began exercising its powers over the oil and gas industry, but said it will give industry players until the end of 2019 for full compliance.
A statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office said oil and gas industry players are required to comply with the Gas Distribution Ordinance 2016, Oil Mining Ordinance (OMO) 1958 and Sarawak Land Code (SLC) 1958.
The Gas Distribution Ordinance, which comes into force today, requires all activities related to gas distribution or within the distribution system for supply and delivery to be licensed by the state through the director of Gas Distribution.
These activities include the import of liquefied natural gas into Sarawak, regasification, treatment and the separation and processing.
