Darn it, I missed the boat. Who’s Kudos?
Dateline 2019-03-29, Daily Express:
Malaysia’s first Micro Liquefied Natural Gas facility at Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park that was officially launched, Thursday, will not only spur the economy but provide job opportunities for Sabahans, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.Some 99 per cent of the workforce comprises Sabahans, mainly engineers and technicians. Although micro in size with capacity of producing 35 metric tonnes daily or equivalent to 1.8 million standard cubic feet a day, it can meet the energy requirements of small and medium industries across the State. Consumers would benefit from cleaner and cheaper fuel at a competitive price, which in turn translates to cost savings and reduce the cost of doing business in Sabah.
Kudos goes to Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd (SEC), a wholly owned company of the State Government, which reached this significant milestone, in collaboration with Zhangjiagang Furui Special Equipment Company limited, a multinational company from China.

Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd (SEC) is expanding its gas distribution network to reach out to new segments of energy users through the building of a plant that converts natural gas from its gaseous form to liquid, the first of its kind in Malaysia.
The State Government-linked company is embarking on the project in partnership with China’s Zhangjiagang Furui Special Equipment Co. Ltd (FURUISE) through the setting up a company known as SEC Gas Sdn Bhd.
The company is to build, own and operate the plant which will be located at the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP).
When launching the SEC’s third phase gas distribution initiative Thursday, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman praised the company for taking the initiative to breathe fresh air to the State not only in the form of bringing new technology but also expanding the benefits of natural gas to a wider spectrum of energy consumers.

Interesting, this has not been on my radar.

State-owned Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd (SEC) is set to finalise a joint venture for the construction of the nation’s first micro liquefied gas plant in Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP).
The plant will be owned by a subsidiary company of SEC through a joint venture which will be finalised soon.
SEC chief executive officer Dato Harun Hj Ismail told press members who attended his Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house near here recently that they have already gotten the approval from their shareholders and the signing ceremony would be held once the joint venture terms are finalised accordingly.
He said he was very optimistic of the joint venture as it would mean being able to supply energy in the form of liquefied gas to a wider spectrum of consumer base in the west coast of Sabah.
