Dateline 2019-10-03 NST:
Malaysian Gas Association (MGA) says the delivery of the first TPA (third-party access) liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo next week will mark an important milestone in the gas market reforms that started in 2013.
That year, the first regasification terminal began operating in Sungai Udang, Melaka, enabling LNG importation.
“We welcome the agreement between Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) and Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd for a trial third party cargo – the first since the TPA came into force,’ it said in a statement today.
MGA said the Gas Supply (Amendment) Act 2016, which is in operation since January 2017, allows third parties to sell gas, thus offer options to gas users, which works in the best interests of the consumers.
