Fire At Malaysia Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline
There has been a fire at Petronas’ Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline in Malaysia, Petronas confirmed.
- “The incident is believed to have involved a third-party contractor performing works nearby, unrelated to the pipeline’s operations”, according to the firm.
- On 21 September, Malaysia LNG, majority owned by Petronas, declared force majeure on LNG supplies to its customers due to a leak on the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline.
- Parliament member Baru Bian demanded Petronas to shut down permanently its Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSPG) following the latest incident, as it has recorded five leakages and explosions since 2014, according to The Borneo Post.
