    Published On: 24-May-2022

    The Sarawak government should develop an oil and gas (O&G) landing centre in Mateding, Balingian, about 574km north of here.

    The suggestion was made by Abdul Yakub Arbi (GPS-Balingian) during the debate on the motion of thanks for the speech by the Yang di-Pertua Negri Sarawak, Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud at the opening of the state legislative assembly sitting yesterday.

    The proposal was made in line with the announcement by Petronas on March 30 on a new O&G discovery in the Sirung-1 wildcat exploration well under the Block SK405B production sharing contract.

    "This oil well is located in shallow waters in the Balingian constituency. It's not wrong if we suggest once again that an O&G landing centre be built in Mateding," said Abdul Yakub.

    He said the Mateding Industrial Zone is the most strategic location for the project which would create a lot of new jobs, benefitting the people an  industry players in the Mukah division.
