KOTA KINABALU: Petronas is conducting a series of tests on the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSGP) from February 15 to July 3 as part of its continuous efforts to ensure the integrity and safety of SSGP that runs from Kimanis, Sabah to Bintulu, Sarawak.

In a statement yesterday, the company advised the public not to be alarmed by the occasional hissing sounds, increased number of vehicles and workers along the pipeline and flaring at the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT) in Kimanis.

It will continue to engage the communities residing along the pipeline to update on the progress and measures undertaken throughout the duration of the tests.

Petronas is committed to the highest levels of international HSE standards to ensure the safety of the communities and environment in all areas of its operations, the statement added.
