MIRI: A certificate of recognition was presented to Transport Minister, Datuk Lee Kim Shin on Friday by Petronas Sarawak .

The certificate honoured Lee’s leadership in steering Miri’s vaccination efforts in accelerating the vaccination rate for oil and gas industry workers and frontliners with the establishment of the Lutong oil and gas industry vaccination centre. 

Lee, who is also the minister in charge of the Miri Division Disaster Management Committee, received the certificate from the general manager of Petronas Sarawak, Zulaihi M. Mantali during his visit to the vaccination centre at the Petronas Carigali Headquarters in Lutong.

The visit was followed by a meeting with Petronas’ senior management staff together with Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) deputy chairman, Datuk Ik Pahon, who is also the Deputy State Secretary.

The certificate stated, “By doing so, you have positively enabled access to Covid-19 vaccines for more than 4,000 oil and gas industry workers in Miri, besides contributing to safer business operations in achieving herd immunity at the workplace whilst lending support in preserving the economic resilience of the oil and gas sector in Miri.”

Another certificate of recognition was presented to the Miri Division Disaster Management Committee (MDDMC) in recognition of its proactive guidance and support towards continuous business operations.

Lee thanked Petronas and all the oil and gas industry players in Miri for their close cooperation and adherence to the standard operating procedures (SOPs), especially for the oil and gas operators offshore.

He called on all the oil and gas industry stakeholders to adhere strictly to the SOPs.

Lee emphasised that it was imperative for all oil and gas companies to ensure  their workers complete their two doses of vaccination.

The MDDMC has held a number of meetings with Petronas and major oil companies as well as local companies to ensure that they are fully aware of the latest SOPs laid down and also the importance of their full compliance to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.
