“It will take some time. This is a very important position and we want to choose the best person,” he said yesterday after attending Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg’s press conference to announce the appointment of Sarawak Energy Bhd (SEB) to spearhead research on hydrogen fuel and hydrogen fuel cell applications in the state.

Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg said for a person to be appointed as a board member of the newly formed Petroleum Sarawak Berhad (Petros), he or she must be very experienced in the oil and gas industry.

He was responding to a question posed by a reporter who asked when he was going to appoint a Dayak representative to the Petros board of directors.

“Actually, there is already a Dayak representative in the board by the name of Mohd Medan Abdullah, who is a Muslim Kelabit,” he said here today.

The Chief Minister’s Office had recently announced the appointment of former state secretary Hamid Bugo, who once served with Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd in Bintulu, as chairman of Petros. Hamid has also been chairman of oil and gas company Sapura Resources Bhd since March last year.

The other Petros board members announced are Sharbini Suhaili, Zuraimi Sabki and Heng Hock Cheng, whom Abang Johari had described as “experienced industry professionals with very strong and proven track records and had served in key positions in the oil and gas industry”.
