I have been reliably informed that SOGEC is not related to MOGEC, or MOGSC. Lesson learnt: go register trademarks before someone beats you to the punch.

The government has done much to ensure people in the four oil and gas producing states in Malaysia are actively involved in the sector.

Sabah Oil and Gas Services Council vice chairman Datuk Albert Boyou said a review of the royalty would do no harm but there is more that can be tapped from the industry.

In Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman has been instrumental in pushing for greater participation in the oil and gas sector through Petronas as well as provide opportunities for more people in the state, he said.

“Previously this was hardly the case and opportunities in the sector were hard to come by,” he said adding this was evident with the development of the many major projects that came since Musa took office in 2003.

Key developments in the state include Sabah Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) which has attracted RM11 billion in investments, Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT) in Kimanis as well as the 500km Sabah, Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSGP) that links Bintulu, Sarawak.

Dateline 2017-02-03, Daily Express:

A second ammonia plant will be built at the Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) as part of the oil and gas industry’s development in Sabah this year.

Disclosing this, Deputy Chief Minister-cum-Industrial Development Minister Datuk Seri Raymond Tan said the project will see Sabah venturing into the natural gas downstream industry and would cost more than the existing Sabah Ammonia Urea Project (Samur) in Siptang.

“Sabah is looking into developing the oil and gas industry as another prospective area to be ventured into like engaging in natural gas development instead of selling our ample natural gas without value adding.

“What Samur does is turn the natural gas into solid substance like fertilisers and the project is worth about RM6 billion.

“Hence, for this year, Sabah will be venturing into another project which is a different one because Sabah will have a bigger share in setting up the second ammonia plant with the cost being more than RM6 billion,” he said at a Chinese New Year luncheon, Thursday.

The district will be receiving foreign investments worth many billion Ringgit to build mega projects related to the oil and gas (O&G) industry here.

Member of Parliament Datuk Sapawi Ahmad, who disclosed this, said projects are expected to be constructed at the Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) in Sindumin that will have a huge impact on the development of O&G industry and socio-economic aspects here.

“I was made to understand that several foreign companies have shown interest to invest in our oil and gas industry in particular in SOGIP here that has a total acreage of 4.065-acre, as it is the only site exclusively for the O&G industry in Sabah.

“One particular investor is from Romania who have contacted the State Government through the Industrial Development Ministry to show their interest to spend their money in constructing a project in SOGIP. Only the concerned authorities would know the details on specific project that Romania hopes to invest here.

“These upcoming projects would bring positive impact to the industry and development of infrastructure and social development as well as helping the government in bringing about rapid development in the O&G industry in the State,” he said.
