Restore Sarawak’s rights to its oil


Dateline 2018-08-06, FMT:

Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali has told Parliament that Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) election promise of giving a 20% “royalty” to oil-producing states was based on “a loose definition of the word… The term cash payment is not used generally, but it is generally understood to mean a royalty”.

He said a special Cabinet committee had been formed to negotiate with the oil-producing states on how to increase the 15% payments to them, on top of the existing 5% of gross profit cash payment under the Petroleum Development Act (PDA).
