Status updates:
• Amendment to the Gas Supply Act : The amendments to the Gas Suppy Act is currently under review by the Attorney General and EPU. Target for first reading in Parliament by end of March 2015.
• Communication to the users on subsidy rationalization : MGA plans to meet FMM and Chambers of Commerce to get their inputs regarding the gas subsidy rationalization.
• Gas specifications. If majority of gas users experience problems with the gas specifications as stated in contracts, then PETRONAS will probably look into the issue. However, it must be noted that if the specifications are too tight, then sourcing of gas may be difficult. The gas specifications will also be addressed in the gas network code as when the gas market is liberalized, there will be suppliers other than PETRONAS using the pipeline system.
• ST-MGA organized a gas legislation and safety seminar in Kota Kinabalu in 2014, attracted 140 participants. Collaboration between MGA and ST in this area will continue.
