The natural gas reserves discovered in Sarawak are estimated to be sufficient for 15 to 17 years at a daily production of 5,000 MMscf, says Assistant Minister for Corporate Affairs Abdullah Saidol.

He said it was important for the state, through Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (Petros), to enforce and protect production sharing contracts for several revenue streams in the state.

“52.7 percent of the country’s discovered gas reserves are in the state and it was also the largest natural gas producer in Malaysia at 52.89 trillion standard cubic feet,” Abdullah told the Sarawak Legislative Assembly in response to a question from Aidel Lariwoo (Sadong Jaya – BN) in Kuching today.
