PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court dismissed Petroliam Nasional Berhad’s PetronaS application for leave to proceed with its legal tussle with the Sarawak government for regulatory control of the oil-and-gas exploration and mining in the state.

Representing the State Government, lawyer Datuk JC Fong said, Sarawak hoped Petronas would continue to work with Sarawak under the State law.

He added, Petronas’ action, which operates in Sarawak, does not adhere to the State’s law has led to the issue being brought to court.

He further said, the matter was also explained by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Zohari Tun Abang Haji Openg.
