MGA advocates expanded role for natural gas


Dateline 2018-10-09, Borneo Post:

In support of the government’s efforts to achieve Malaysia’s COP21 targets, the Malaysian Gas Association (MGA) is advocating for the expanded use of natural gas, a clean, efficient and cost-effective fuel, to reduce the country’s carbon emissions and drive social, environmental and economic progress.

Malaysia’s natural gas industry reported a cumulative contribution to the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) amounting to 4.2 per cent, comprising of domestic sales of natural gas at US$2.45 billion and exports in the form of liquified natural gas (LNG) valued at US$10.56 billion in 2015.

Commenting on the industry, MGA president Hazli Sham Kassim said that given that natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, the association believes natural gas can play a prominent role in ensuring the country achieves its COP21 promise by supporting the expansion of renewable energy while simultaneously driving Malaysia’s economic progress.
