Sarawak to give its oil law more bite

Dateline 2018-07-04, Malay Mail:

he Sarawak Oil Mining Ordinance 1958 (SOMO) seeks to bar any company or person from building, erecting and decommissioning any mining structure within Sarawak’s territorial boundary, unless authorised in writing by the State Minerals Mining Authority.

A maximum penalty of RM250,000 or an imprisonment of three years or both upon conviction await any person or company who fails to comply with the provision.

This is one of the provisions to be included in the Sarawak Oil Mining Ordinance 1958, which will be tabled for amendments at next week’s sitting of the Sarawak State Assembly.
