Sarawak needs more chemical engineers to support the state’s petrochemical industry, said Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg.
He said expertise in the field would be needed for Sarawak especially with two proposed petrochemical investments in Bintulu.
“There are two proposed investments (coming into Sarawak) with each valued at US$6 billion on the separation of gas which is a complicated process.
“Therefore with these investments coming in, we need a lot of chemical engineers in Sarawak,” he said in his speech at the Sarawak Branch Institution of Engineers (IEM) annual dinner here, last night.

Malaysia’s Petronas Chemicals Group is pinning its hopes on a long-awaited $16 billion Saudi-backed refinery and petrochemical project as it seeks to boost slumping profits while investigating possible new acquisitions, its top executive told Nikkei Asia.
The Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) joint venture in the southern state of Johor is a portion of the larger $27 billion Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex mooted in 2012. Saudi Aramco — Saudi Arabia’s national oil producer — is to supply half of the crude feedstock for the refining portion and share half of the output.
