After deliberating upon the Kimanis-Bintulu pipeline project, Minister of Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok succeeded in getting the Federal Cabinet's endorsement of setting up a full-fledge petrochemical industry in Sabah. This means that Sabah can now, along with tourism and palm oil, add oil and gas as one of its main economic sources.
The Kimanis-Bintulu pipeline project will still continue however in this new scenario only Sabah's excess gas will be channeled to Sarawak.
This will definitely contribute to the economic welfare of Sabah.
Well done Tan Sri!
