MIRI: People living along the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSGP) have been told to look out for withered or yellowish vegetations along the pipeline, which may indicate pipe leakage.
SSGP operation unit head, Suffian Sabeli, gave this reminder to the people living near and along the pipeline to immediately notify Petronas or other authorities if they saw any withered or yellowish leaves near or along the pipeline.
Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline is a 500-km natural gas pipeline that links Kimanis in Sabah to Bintulu. The pipeline is part of Petronas’ development project of Sabah-Sarawak Integrated Oil and Gas Project which started operation in early 2014.
Suffian was leading a team of Petronas officers in a joint fire safety campaign with state Fire and Rescue Department in the interior of Baram recently.
“There, they could hear hissing sound coming from the pipeline and see bubbles if the pipeline is in the water or in watery area,” said Suffian, adding they could also observe the movement of branches and leaves nearby.
The people living along the pipeline are also reminded to notify Petronas at least a week before they could conduct open burning activities near the pipeline.
“After you have notified us we will go and check for leakages and the likes,” he added.
