KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's Ministry of Finance is scrutinizing two gas pipeline projects worth 9.4 billion ringgit ($2.36 billion) after discovering there have been more payments made than work done.
One project is a 600km multiproduct petroleum pipeline connecting Melaka to Jitra for which the government has set aside 5.35 billion ringgit. The other is a 662km gas pipeline in Sabah with a budget of 4.06 billion ringgit. Contracts for both were awarded in November 2016 to China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau, a unit of state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation.
