Sarawak contractors want Petronas to make them priority in new O&G exploration deals

Dateline 2020-06-27, Malay Mail:

The Sarawak Petroleum Contractors Association has urged that Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) give the state’s contractors priority, in awarding contracts related to oil and gas exploration in Sarawak waters.

Its Protem Committee chairman Datuk Rahman Lariwoo said the contract jobs could be handed over to contractors from outside Sarawak if local contractors were not capable of carrying out the tasks.

“If possible, we want all jobs available in the Sarawak waters to be given (first) to the oil and gas contractors from Sarawak, as we believe most of them are experienced in drilling rigs right up to production of oil and gas,” he said after chairing the first protem committee meeting, here today.
