Kelantan disappointed with ‘no oil royalty’ decision


Dateline 2021-11-26, FMT:

The Kelantan state government has expressed disappointment with Putrajaya’s confirmation that Petronas will not be paying any oil royalty to the state.

Finance minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz had said yesterday that there will be no oil royalty payment to any state in the peninsula, including Kelantan.

He said Kelantan would continue to receive “wang ehsan” (goodwill payment) for petroleum produced off its coast.

Kelantan deputy menteri besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said Tengku Zafrul’s announcement, which was published in HarakahDaily, was shocking.
