Kota Kinabalu: Swepa (Sabah Women Entrepreneurs & Professionals Association) hopes to convince the State Government to build and operate a proposed Bare foot College in Sabah, like the headquarters in Tilonia in India, so that more rural villages in the region can enjoy lights at night and live a better life.

 

It is also looking at embarking on the 3rd Barefoot Solar project to change more lives.

 

Swepa President Wynnie Jong said like the first project, Swepa Barefoot Solar Porject 2.0 has been brought to fruition in tandem with the association's tagline Women Helping Women.

 

Gining Jaineh, 44, (Kg Benontungan Suyad) and Rusni Singkamung, 44, (Kg Sungai Magandai), two illiterate grandmothers, became the second to be trained in “solar' engineering” to light up their villages upon return.

 

“Gining and Rusni assume the responsibility of repair and maintenance of the solar lighting units for a minimum of five years. These two solar mamas play the key role in sustaining and replicating solar technology in their respective rural communities.

 

“After the completion of this second project, we will not stop here but will continue our mission to identify and electrify more villages next year,” she said.

 

Jong explained the roles played by the respective project partners while acknowledging the presence of Lydia Tan who represented the Hong Kong-based Tan Sui Lin Foundation, which is the major partner.

 

The Foundation donated USD60,000 for purchase of the solar lighting systems. (Lydia is the daughter-in-law of the Foundation's Founder, Datuk Dr Tan Sui Lin).

 

Other significant partners are Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC) which donated RM150,000 for the construction of the Rural Electronic Workshop (REW) building at Kg Sungai Megandai, Asian Forestry Company Sabah (AFCS) which helped Swepa to identify the villages, organise and provide logistics support and coordination throughout the construction of the REW building, Raleigh International for gathering a team of venturers (age between) and volunteer leaders (age between 25 and above) to put up the building, State Fire and Rescue Services Department (Bomba Sabah) which airlifted 241 boxes of solar lighting units weighing 4016 kilos from Tandek to Kg Sungai Magandai, Pacos Trust, Daily Express and the State Government.

 

Pacos provides various forms of support such as community consultation and monitoring community capacity building for the next five years once all solar installations have been completed.

 

Jong also expressed her gratitude to the Government of India and Barefoot College for their sponsorship of the Solar Mamas' technical training in India. Louis Pang Photography together with Imago raised more than RM3,000 in aid of the project during Mother's Day celebration in May this year. Daily Express is the media partner.

 

She later presented certificates of appreciation to the Deputy High Commissioner of India to Malaysia, Nikhilesh Giri, SEC Deputy CEO, Christopher Ng, AFCS Projects Director, Thondik Venantius, Raleigh Borneo Country Director, Dr Brandon Charleston, Director of Bomba Sabah, Nordin Pauzi, PACOS Programme Coordinator in Community Education, Rufina Koyou, Jasmine Pang (who represented Louis Pang Photography), Lydia and the General Manager of the Palace Hotel, Phang Joo See. The hotel sponsored the homecoming lunch for the grandmas and guests.

 

Ng said SEC's contribution was part of the corporation's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.

Chief Minister: Right decision to turn SEC into GLC

 

Kota Kinabalu : Datuk Seri Musa Aman said the decision to turn Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. into a full State Government Linked Company (GLC) in 1997 was worth it.


He said the decision was to ensure that the company remained relevant and would always go along current trends and act speedily in the challenging and dynamic market.

 

“Over the last 35 years, SEC has attained significant growth with diversified interest in power plants, industrial glue manufacturing, production of spiral pipes and eco-tourism. The latest investments in settng up a ship repair yard and another in provision of spun concrete piles are to be lauded.

 

“This is a testimony of SEC's success in transforming into a successful GLC,” he said, when launching SEC's 35th Anniversary and KSR-SEC Fund Raising dinner, Friday.

 

He noted the company's important contribution in developing the State's economy for the past three decades since its establishment in 1981 with a mission to optimise the use of coastal natural gas instead of having it burnt and wasted.

 

He said the measures taken by SEC has shown that success would follow if projects are managed in a prudent and transparent manner.

 

He stressed, however, on the importance of effective management and prudent spending. The need to manage effectively and to always be prudent in spending are points that I repeatedly remind all GLCs and am pleased that
SEC has constantly practised these virtues. The results of your hard work is seen in SEC's ability to pay dividends.

 

Musa also said he was pleased that the SEC has continued to enhance its key functions as a stakeholder in the downstream oil and gas industry.

 

He said aside from the company's direct efforts to promote the use of gas from here among the Small and Medium Enterprises and the Small and Medium Industries, the State Government has also succeeded in bringing in major investments such as the ammonia plant in Sipitang and the Oil and Gas Terminal in Kimanis.

 

Opportunities abound for the private sector to participate in the development of Sabah's oil, gas and energy sector and I welcome all stakeholders, big and small, to take advantage of this potential either by yourselves or in partnership with our GLCs, he said.

 

However, he stressed that while it is important to measure success in terms of economic or financial success, the business sector must also reach out to communities who are in need help through commitments made via the Corporate Social Responsibility platform.

 

 

SEC declares RM7 million dividend to State Govt

 

Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC) has declared an interim dividend payment of RM7 million to the State government for the financial year ended December 31, 2015.

 

With this latest dividend, the gross amount paid by SEC to date amounts to more than RM183 million.

 

The dividend was handed over to Datuk Pengiran Hassanel, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance by Dato' Harun Ismail, the CEO of SEC and witnessed by Chief Minister-cum-Finance Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman.

 

Also present were SEC Chairman, Datuk Au Kam Wah and the company's Board of Directors.

 

Musa said SEC must continue to practise good governance in order to remain competitive especially during these challenging economic times.

 

“I commend your good performance. However you must continue to raise the bar by practising prudent financial spending, transparency and accountability,” he said.

 

And, Musa also reminded SEC to be mindful of joint ventures and ensure they do not engage in lopsided deals.

 

“You must always protect the interest of the company above everything else,” he said.

 

Meanwhile, Harun said that based on the pre-audited accounts, SEC and its group of companies were expected to achieve a pre-tax profit of about RM86 million for the 2015 financial year.

 

The 2015 profit is lower than 2014's due to the uncertainties brought about by the plunge in global oil prices which affected Asian Supply Base Sdn. Bhd. mainly.

 

Harun added that against the State government's paid-up capital of RM299.9 million, the accumulated profits over the years would have increased the shareholders' funds to about RM880 million by end 2015.

 

While 2016 and 2017 are expected to be challenging in view of the continued global uncertainties especially with respect to oil prices, he said SEC and its companies would remain focused on energy and the oil and gas sectors – areas which it has had a long experience.

 

“SEC's strong balance sheet allows us to continue organic growth in the area of natural gas reticulation. And, plans are underway to deliver energy in the form of liquefied gas to an even broader spectrum of consumers in Sabah.

 

“This is the next phase in the technology to be adopted by SEC after the introduction of the Virtual Compressed Natural Gas System in 2012,” he said.

 

Harun said liquefied gas would allow more consumers to benefit from cleaner and cheaper energy and assist more stakeholders in the business community in lowering their operational cost.

 

 

7th April 2016 – Corporate Briefing – BIMP EAGA Ventures Sdn Bhd (BEV) Business & Environmental Friendly Piling Technology.

 

Mayor to developers : Give priority to environment

Kota Kinabalu: Billions of ringgit are made in construction but very few builders consider the environment or develop the concept of recycling building materials.

 

“As the world's largest and most fragmented industrial activity, construction faces a huge challenge in pursuit of sustainability.

 

“Construction accounts for an estimated 40 per cent of all resource consumption and produces about 40 per cent of all waste including greenhouse gas emissions,” said Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai (pic) in his address on “Environmentally Friendly Development” at a corporate briefing here on Thursday.

 

His speech was read by City Hall Director General Joannes Solidau.

 

Also present at the event were, Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. Chief Executive Officer cum Bimp-Eaga Ventures Sdn. Bhd. Chairman Dato' Harun Haji Ismail, developers and builders.

 

In construction, every step form planning to construction, building use and management, maintenance and renovation, dismantling or demotion, resource consumption to waste production triggers a number of environmental problems, he said.

 

Yeo wants builders to change their mindsets, put second on their list the need to complete projects over the shortest time and while making profits from development, to put environment on top for a change.

 

He said builders need to consider sustainable green design as part of the construction process and adopt the 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) concept.

 

“In implementing any development and construction projects, City Hall has to take into consideration the public interest such as safety, noise pollution, vibration, damages to adjacent building and public infrastructure such as road, drain and other amenities.

 

“We receive a lot of complaints from our people. We take this matter seriously and will look for the best possible solutions that makes everyone happy – the people, the industry player and the government,” he said.

 

Meanwhile, he said City Hall always welcomed innovative ideas and proposals that will help protect the environment while developing amenities to benefit the society.

 

Earlier, Harun revealed that their company is offering an alternative and cost effective solution to the construction piling namely the “Hydraulic Injection Piling Method”.

 

In civil engineering, piles of timber, steel or concrete are driven into the ground to support a structure; bridge piers may be supported on groups of large diameter piles.

 

Contrary to the Bore Pile Method, Hydraulic Injection Piling offers more cost savings, no vibration and noise and potentially shortens project completion time, he said.

 

Such technology is currently being used in Klang Valley and elsewhere in Peninsular Malaysia and is proven to not cause damages to adjacent structures or buildings.

29TH NOVEMBER 2015 – FSI HELP URGED TO GAIN ECONOMIC HUB STATUS

 

 

 

KOTA KINABALU: The Federation of Sabah Industries (FSI) has been urged to continue supporting the government in pushing for the State to gain economic hub status in the region.


Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Musa Aman said trade associations are important partners of the government where he looks forward to a continued partnership with FSI.


He said FSI also provides valuable input about the industrial sector to the government through its active participation in various consultative panels and committees, which have helped in planning and policy formations and urged them to contine their good work.


“Let me assure you that the government listens and that we are finding workable solutions to resolve outstanding issues.


“I urge you to continue to support the government in pushing for Sabah to gain hub status. The government is all for options that could propel Sabah to economic prosperity. We see this happening should we achieve hub status. Your theme for tonight - “Sabah” Hub For The Far East – The Future is Now” is timely.


He said this in his speech at the 32nd Anniversary Dinner of the Federation of Sabah Industries (FSI) at Hakka Hall Tg Lipat here, on Sunday
.

“Events such as this provide an opportunity to hear from FSI on your latest initiatives. FSI as a representative of the industry, especially manufacturers, has been working tirelessly in concert with the government of the day and other trade associations for common causes, notably those affecting the industry in terms of high-cost of production. You have always highlighted issues that affect your members and the industry and the rakyat in general.

 

“Various government policy changes that were necessitated by our nation's quest to achive a high income economy by 2020 has impacted the industry. Additionally, we have just crossed the threshold of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) introduction and recently, we have seen the ringgit depreciate.

 

“I understand the industries are also bracing for minimum wage hike to RM920 for Sabah effective July 1, 2016. Therefore, industralists must find creative ways to mitigate such impacts and must find ways to further diversify the economy especially through downstream processing.

 

“Sabah will offer ample potentials to be tapped ahead. Under the 11th Malaysia Plan, the launch of the Pan Borneo Highway project signifies enhanced logistical linkage between Sabah and Sarawak, providing new markets as well as enabling local companies to benefit from its construction.

 

Meanwhile, Musa said the Sabah Development Corridor will continue to attract more investments and together with Kota Kinabalu being designated as growth catalyst city to enable economic growth, the future looks bright.

 

“Members and the industrial sector in general should look to FSI for possible partnerships with foreign investors as a way to expand your business.


FSI has cultivated close working ties with foreign embassies and trade chambers such as trade, marketing and investment missions and business matching.


He said he was made to understand that FSI jointly with MICCI Sabah will be bringing in foreign and local business people and exhibitors together in the Sabah International Expo 2016 (SIE2016) happening in Kota Kinabalu from 15th to 18th September next year.

 

“Do take this opportunity to participate and explore new opportunities and possible joint ventures”.

26TH MAY 2015 – SABAH ENERGY CORPORATION’S LATEST VIRTUAL PIPELINE SYSTEM (VPS) CUSTOMER

 

 

 

KOTA KINABALU, Malaysia – Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd (SEC), the distributor of natural gas in Sabah and Federal Territory of Labuan officially commissioned its eighth Daughter Station that is located at Tuaran Crumb Factory Sdn Bhd, Sungai Damit, Tuaran. Tuaran Crumb Sdn Bhd is wholly-owned by Sabah Rubber Industry Board (Lembaga Industri Getah Sabah).

 

The Daughter Station stores and supplies compressed natural gas (CNG) to the Tuaran Crumb Factory as fuel for the dryer. The factory produces Standard Malaysian Rubber (SMR) products such as SMR 5, SMR 10 and SMR 20 with an annual capacity of 54,000 Metric Tonnes a year. The factory is certified for MS-ISO 9002: 1994 and MS-ISO 9001: 2008.

 

The official commissioning ceremony was launched by Dato’ Harun Haji Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of SEC. He was joined at the ceremony by YB Datuk Ahmad Bujang, Chairman of Sabah Rubber Industry Board, Datuk Harris Matthews, General Manager of Sabah Rubber Industry Board cum Director of Tuaran Crumb Sdn Bhd, Senior Management and staff of SEC and Tuaran Crumb Sdn Bhd.

 

Quote from Dato’ Harun Haji Ismail: “Sabah Energy Corporation has a proven track record of providing compressed natural gas to our seven existing customers. We are pleased to include Tuaran Crumb Sdn. Bhd. as our eight customer. Our Virtual Pipeline System is a safe, reliable and efficient method to provide compressed natural gas to industrial and commercial customers in Sabah. This smart partnership between SEC and Tuaran Crumb will bring the benefits of using natural gas to the rubber processing industry. In earlier tests, it was found that natural gas which is a cleaner fuel had resulted in better quality SMR”.

 

SEC is committed to expanding the growth of natural gas supply by extending its CNG Virtual Pipeline System to various customers who are located in areas where there is limited or no existing network of gas pipeline. SEC is optimistic that more companies in Sabah will enjoy the benefits of natural gas such as clean burning fuel, relatively lower cost of fuel compared to diesel, LPG and MFO while reducing the carbon footprint of existing factories, hotel resorts and industrial processing plants.

A total of 53 senior citizens here now can literally see better after they received free spectacles courtesy of the Sabah Energy Corporation (SEC) Sports & Recreation Club in collaboration with the Assemblyman Office and Tuaran Hospital.

 

Presenting the spectacles, SEC Chief Executive Officer, Dato' Harun Hj Ismail hoped SEC would be able to continue carrying out more corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes here.

 

He said the contribution from SEC might not be that big but hoped it would be the starting point of cooperation with the community here in the future.

 

Assemblyman, Datuk Joniston Bangkuai who was also at the ceremony at the town resthouse on Tuesday expressed gratitude to SEC for choosing his constituency for its CSR programme.

 

He also hoped many more government-linked companies would emulate the efforts by SEC to contribute to the people here who remained steadfast in supporting the government.

 

One of the recipients, Terminah Damit, 50, from Kampung Ranau-Ranau really appreciated the assistance because as a farmer she simply could not afford to buy spectacles that can cost up to RM300.

 

Another recipient Noumie Kuntagil, 58, also from Kampung Ranau-Ranau said she never realised that she had eyesight problems until she underwent free eyesight checks at the Tuaran Hospital.

 

Most of the recipients were thankful for the contribution because ”at our age it really helps us a lot”.

Sabah Energy aims to promote use of natural gas with its VPS

 

KOTA KINABALU: State-owned company Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd aims to focus on expanding the market base for their Virtual Pipeline System - a move to promote the use of natural gas.


The company, spearheading the energy resources development in the state said their VPS programme that was launched in July 2012, is currently entering its second phase of business growth.


Chief executive officer Datuk Harun Ismail said the company have ordered additional gas compressors to expand capacity to compress natural gas and to meet current and future needs of their clients.


VPS is a proven technology where natural gas is compressed at a Mother Station at SEC’s premises in Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park, and then transferred into special purpose built containers.


The containers are then delivered by trucks to the customers’ premises where a Daughter Station will decompress the gas to the customers' required pressure. The decompressed gas is then fed into the customers’ internal piping system.


"This system cater to clients that are located in areas where there is no existing natural gas pipeline infrastructure and so far, we have eight clients (seven industrial and one commercial) around Kota Kinabalu.


"We will continue with our existing natural gas awareness marketing campaigns in the private sector, at the same time work closely with government agencies in raising awareness.


"With the government's gradual removal of fuel susbidies in the country, we expect to attract greater number of new clients to sign up where significant fuel savings is achieved by switching to natural gas," Harun added.


"The market for compressed natural gas is relatively untapped .. However challenges include the initial market response of 'wait and see' approach, when we first introduced VPS.


"They were sceptical of the System in terms of technical performance, reliability of supply and various related issues, but we went to great lengths to brief the target groups.


"To sum it up, the reception to VPS has been better than our initial market expectations when we first launched two years ago," said Harun.

Apart from a reduction in fuel costs, the consistent heating values and burning characteristics of CNG would also enhance SID's processess.

 

As a major stakeholder in Sabah's tourism industry, the Magellan Sutera Resort (Advance Prestige Sdn Bhd) strives to reduce its carbon footprint and has decided to convert to using CNG which is environmentally cleaner than alternative fuels.

 

On June 21st 2014, this became a reality when the resort's engineering team declared its readiness to start using CNG from SEC's 6th Daughter Station at the resort premises.

Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC) achieved another milestone in its efforts to make available Natural Gas to a wider spectrum of consumers via its Virtual Pipeline system. On 9 February 2014, SEC commissioned its supply of natural gas to Steel Industries (Sabah) Sdn. Bhd., the 4th Virtual Pipeline consumer to benefit from utilising natural gas which is environmentally cleaner and more cost competitive than alternative fuels. The next three consumers who will have natural gas delivered to their premises via the Virtual Pipeline system will be a dairy processing factory, a factory producing fish meal feed and a major holiday resort. Under Phase 1 of this innovative system, a total of seven customers would have benefited from using natural gas by the end of the first quarter of 2014.

SEC is also finalising discussions with several other consumers in the rubber processing, plastics moulding and food processing industries. Another major resort is also getting ready for conversion to use natural gas in line with its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

The efforts to promote the utilisation of natural gas have been well received and SEC looks forward to be able to make available this indigenous energy resource to more local consumers. This lower cost energy will compliment Government efforts to enhance economic development in Sabah while lower emissions from natural gas also contribute to efforts to promote Sabah as an environmentally friendly tourist destination.

Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC) achieved another milestone in its efforts to make available Natural Gas to a wider spectrum of consumers via its Virtual Pipeline system. On 9 February 2014, SEC commissioned its supply of natural gas to Steel Industries (Sabah) Sdn. Bhd., the 4th Virtual Pipeline consumer to benefit from utilising natural gas which is environmentally cleaner and more cost competitive than alternative fuels. The next three consumers who will have natural gas delivered to their premises via the Virtual Pipeline system will be a dairy processing factory, a factory producing fish meal feed and a major holiday resort. Under Phase 1 of this innovative system, a total of seven customers would have benefited from using natural gas by the end of the first quarter of 2014.

SEC is also finalising discussions with several other consumers in the rubber processing, plastics moulding and food processing industries. Another major resort is also getting ready for conversion to use natural gas in line with its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

The efforts to promote the utilisation of natural gas have been well received and SEC looks forward to be able to make available this indigenous energy resource to more local consumers. This lower cost energy will compliment Government efforts to enhance economic development in Sabah while lower emissions from natural gas also contribute to efforts to promote Sabah as an environmentally friendly tourist destination.

7th March 2013 -Half Day Presentation on "Challenges and Opportunities for Engineers and Technicians in the Malaysian Oil & Gas Industry

The Talk was jointly organised by Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd and The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (Sabah Branch). It was officiated by the Deputy Chief Minister cum Minister of Ministry of Resource Development & Information Technology, YB Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai.

The technical talk is to provide a general awareness and knowledge on Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd's Virtual Pipeline System where Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), on specially designed containers called MATs are loaded on a trailer and transported by prime mover to the natural gas customers.


The Virtual Pipeline System is expected to expand the market for natural gas to distant users outside of Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) where piped natural gas is unavailble to them. As a source of fuel, natural gas is clean, reliable, environmentally-friendly and relatively cheaper when compared to diesel and Medium Fuel Oil (MFO) and Liquified Petrolem Gas (LPG).


The industrial and commercial users will enjoy many benefits from the use of natural gas as a main source of fuel to replace diesel, MFO and LPG in their respective businesses.


This talk provides the avenue for potential users of natural gas to know about the many benefits of using natural gas via the Virtual Pipeline System.


The Speakers are Mr Fabian Wee, the Managing Director of Green Energy Resources Sdn Bhd and Mr Genshi Yasuma, the Managing Director of Yanmar Kota Kinabalu R&D Centre Sdn Bhd. The two Speakers from SEC are Mr Moses Lee and Ir. Hassan Mudin who spoke on "Your Natural Gas Provider" and "Natural Gas Distribution System" respectively.

30th January 2013 -Awareness Talk On Compressed Natural Gas Via Virtual Pipeline

(Extracts from the Chief Executive Officer's speech text)

The talk today highlights the many advantages of using compressed natural gas via virtual pipeline which will be made available in March 2013 to our first 2 customers and several other new customers within the next few month which are located outside the KKIP zone.


SEC is a Government-Linked-Company (GLC) entrusted with a task to promote, facilitate and develop energy resources in Sabah and to distribute natural gas to users in mainland Sabah and the Federal Territory of Labuan. We aim to be "your natural gas provider" especially to the small and medium sized industries. The potential natural gas users are scattered over wide geographical areas, making the distribution of natural gas by the traditional underground pipelines a costly proposition.


As at now, SEC can only supply natural gas to users whose business premises are located within the vicinity of the city gate station in the KKIP. Beyond this domain, it becomes highly uneconomical to supply due to high capital outlay, small volume of gas consumption and geographically scattered markets. SEC is now embarking on a more feasible alternative mode of natural gas distribution using trucks which can venture as far as 70 KM from KKIP areas. This alternative method of natural gas supply is known as virtual pipeline system.


The Virtual Pipeline System developed by Galileo of Agentina is an internationally proven system and is successfully used in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Mozzambique, India, The Philippines and Singapore.


During the talk our Technical Service Manager, Encik Adzmir Abdul Rahman presented the technical aspect of Natural Gas Distribution system, underground pipeline and the Virtual Pipeline. You will be shown how simple yet efficient this process is. Encik Moses Lee, Senior Manager, Business Development & Property will present the commercial aspect and benefits of safe, cleaner and cheaper energy.

The talk was attended by 40 participants from FSM, KKIP and others.

19 July 2012 ? Launching of SEC's Compressed Natural Gas Project Via Virtual Pipeline System



YAB Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Hj. Aman (5th from left) launched the SEC'sCompressed Natural Gas Project Via Virtual Pipeline System and witnessed
by YB Dr. Yee Moh Chai, YB Au Kam Wah, Dato' Harun Hj. Ismail & others.


Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC) launched its Compressed Natural Gas Project / Virtual Pipeline System today at a leading hotel in Kota Kinabalu. The launching ceremony was graced by the right honourable Chief Minister, YAB Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Bin Haji Aman.

Earlier, the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning(EPCC) contract was signed between SEC and its contractors, GNC Galileo of Argentina and Frugas Synergy Sdn. Bhd..The two customers who have signed their respective natural gas sales and purchase agreements with SEC are Ching Kuan Holdings Sdn. Bhd. and Colourcoil Industries Sdn. Bhd..

Dato? Harun Haji Ismail, the CEO of SEC explained that for these two customers, natural gas will be available at their premises by the 1st quarter of 2013. Discussions are also ongoing with other potential customers who have expressed interest to convert their existing facilities to use this cheaper and environmentally friendlier form of fuel.

The Virtual Pipeline System is a proven technology where natural gas is compressed at a Mother Station at SEC?s premises in the KKIP and then transferred into special purpose built containers. The containers are then delivered by truck to the customers? premises where a Daughter Station will decompress the gas to the customers' required pressure. The decompressed gas is then fed into the customers? internal piping system.

Dato? Harun explained that the Virtual Pipeline System is an economical approach to make available natural gas, which is a cheaper and environmentally friendlier fuel, to a broader spectrum of customers whose premises are located at distances as far away as 70KM from SEC?s existing premises in KKIP. With this System, capital intensive underground pipelines ( the traditional method of gas distribution ) can be avoided and the reach of customers can therefore be extended. The price of gas delivered to the customers? premises is cheaper than alternative fuels by as much as 50%.

From the environmental perspective, industrial users of highly polluting fuels from wastes such as wood waste, saw dust and used oil, are encouraged to convert to natural gas to contribute to a cleaner environment for the present and future generations.

The technology provider of this Virtual Pipeline System is GNC Galileo of Argentina. The System has been used in Argentina for over 20 years and similar systems are being used in other parts of South America, and closer to home the technology is also used in the Philippines and Singapore. GNC Galileo will be working with its Malaysian agent, Frugas Synergy Sdn. Bhd. and SEC in providing continuous technical back-up for the System.

Apart from the technical back-up, Dato? Harun stated that SEC has a complete team of trained and competent engineers and technicians to not only operate the System but also to assist customers in their studies to convert their existing equipment to use natural gas. The whole supply chain will also be regulated by the Malaysian Energy Commission, DOSH, JPJ and other Governmental bodies to ensure compliance with all aspects of natural gas supply via this System. The supply will also meet ISO standards.

On another note, Dato? Harun explained that SEC was established in 1981 and has today grown into a State GLC with diversified interests in power plants, industrial glue manufacturing, production of spiral pipes, aviation and eco-tourism ventures and the only licensed oil and gas supply base in Sabah and Sarawak, apart from its core function of natural gas distribution.

Dato' Harun also said that SEC is envisioned to venture into further downstream and upstream oil and gas activities in Sabah.




25th June 2012 - Sabah Energy Declares RM6.33 Million Gross Dividend To The State Government


Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd (SEC) has declared a gross dividend of RM6.3 million to the State Government for financial year ending 31st December 2011.

During the presentation, Dato' Harun said that SEC and its Group of Companies' achieved a Profit before tax of RM69.45 million for the 2011 financial year, as compared to RM62.38 million for 2010. At the company level, SEC made a profit before tax of RM44.41 million. Asian Supply Base Sdn. Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary which provides services to the oil and gas industry achieved a profit before tax of RM41.29 million. Against an original capital of RM242.67 million, the Shareholders Fund of the SEC Group has increased to RM578.38 million by the end of 2011. Dato' Harun added that in market value terms, the Group is worth significantly more than that.


Dato' Harun also mentioned that apart from other identified investments in 2012 - 2014, SEC has embarked on a "Virtual Pipeline" project to deliver Compressed Natural Gas to industries in the greater Kota Kinabalu area. This is expected to be commissioned by early 2013 and will bring the benefits of cheaper and cleaner energy to more industrial consumers. A portion of the cumulative profits that SEC has made over the years will be retained to fund these growth opportunities.
