KUCHING (May 24): The Sarawak government through Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (Petros) wants to further increase use of domestic gas and the coverage area for natural gas distribution in the state.
State Utilities and Telecommunications Minister Datuk Julaihi Narawi said two plans would be implemented to expand the coverage, namely construction of the Bintulu-Samalaju Gas Pipeline in Bintulu and Pan Sarawak Virtual Pipeline System in major towns in the state.
The construction of the 70km Bintulu-Samalaju Gas Pipeline from Bintulu to the Samalaju Industrial Park is expected to drive downstream industrial growth by attracting local and foreign investments.
"This will in turn contribute to socio-economic development and create more job opportunities in Bintulu," he said when winding up the debate at the Sarawak State Assembly on Tuesday (May 24).
Julaihi said the Pan Sarawak Virtual Pipeline System was planned for big towns like Kuching, Bintulu and Miri to enable Sarawak people to enjoy the natural gas facility at a lower price as well as to promote growth of small and medium industries.
