The Sarawak Petroleum Contractors Association (Speca) wants the state government to intervene over Petronas’ recent decision to award a contract to a non-Sarawakian company for less specialised works off the state’s coast.

In a statement today, Speca president Rahman Lariwoo said one of its members who participated in the tender for the provision of alternative blasting and painting for Petronas Carigali found out that the job had been awarded to a firm based in Peninsular Malaysia.

“The contract is to provide equipment, manpower and consumables for the alternative blasting works offshore Sarawak.

The Sarawak Petroleum Contractors Association (SPECA) has asked Miri residents not to enter abandoned oil well sites for their own safety as one location around Canada Hill in the city is believed to be emitting gas.

Its president, Datuk Rahman Lariwoo today said this was because members of the public had found a hole foaming, believed to be leaking liquefied natural gas at one of the sites of an abandoned oil well in the area recently.

“Actually, the discovery does not show that there are still sources of oil and gas around Miri city but it is probably a leakage from the waste materials of an abandoned oil well and is hazardous to the public,” he said during a press conference here.

What, as if they don’t get priority now?

The Sarawak Petroleum Contractors Association (Speca) is expected to start talks with Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) to give priority to oil and gas contractors from the state this November.

Its president, Datuk Rahman Lariwoo, today said this was because the association had received a letter from the Registrar of Societies (ROS) confirming that it had already approved the registration of SPECA.

“The letter is dated Aug 19, 2020, officially this organisation has been approved (its registration with ROS). After this we want to meet with the top management of Petronas to give us more opportunities (to get contracts),” he told a press conference at Wisma Bapa Malaysia, Petra Jaya, here.

He said the association would invite the top management of Petronas to Sarawak to attend the launching ceremony of the association in November.

“If they (Petronas top management) can’t come, we will go there (Kuala Lumpur) to meet and discuss with them,” he said.
