Putrajaya is currently trying to recover the money it has already paid to the company contracted to build the Trans-Sabah Gas Pipeline (TSGP) project.
Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Yeo Bee Yin said the company was paid 84% of the total cost of the project worth RM4 billion, but the project progress was only recorded at 14%.
“We have two options at the moment. Either to recover the fund which was paid prematurely or to carry on with the project,” she told reporters today after attending a briefing by indigenous empowerment group Pacos today.
