Previously, I only talk about how Sabah and Sarawak could be a strong key player in Oil & Gas Industry, but Labuan can also be considered as one of them as well. Labuan has been the hub for fabrication facility, growing oil & gas industry workforce in onshore and offshore sites. So much that recently, Sarawak-based Petra Energy had established a collaboration with Labuan Shipyard and Engineering for minor and major fabrication works.
Labuan, with this event is hoped to grow more and be the largest deepwater oil & gas hub in the world, and I don’t see any wrong in this vision. Being a tax free zone in Malaysia and a strategic location, local industry player can get a huge benefits.
