Sarawak to focus on downstream activities in oil and gas and agriculture

Dateline 2022-02-07, NST:

 Seventy per cent of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply in Malaysia comes from Sarawak, and yet the state only consumes less than five per cent of the country’s total production.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg said there was a pressing need to intensify localisation of gas supply and utilisation to further industrialise Sarawak in the next five to 10 years in order to increase high value downstream economic activities in the state.

“At the same time, we are also exploring new oil and gas blocks onshore and offshore to ensure volume is available for Sarawak’s journey towards industrialisation.”
