KUALA LUMPUR: The proposed RM20 billion Sultan Abdul Halim Refinery Complex in Yan, Kedah, has gained traction with Konsortium Asia Petrohub, which announced that land reclamation works will take place to build man-made islands to house the two refineries, two kilometres off the state’s coast.

Konsortium Asia Petrohub chief executive officer Raja Chik Jaafar Raja Mokhtar is confident that with the main contractor, Hainan Zhenrong Energy Co Ltd onboard, the direct negotiations that the consortium is currently conducting will attract various players to supply housing, power plants, highway construction and transportation services, as well as other products and services for the project.

He said that the date of commissioning of the refineries will be three years from the start of the project.

For the refinery, Konsortium Asia Petrohub will import crude petroleum oil from the Middle East, process it into refined products and export it to China and other Asian countries.

Meanwhile, in its first phase, the consortium will develop multiple new townships within the hub.

Konsortium Asia Petrohub plans to build 100,000 homes in and around Sungai Limau, Kedah, with 10,000 homes being allocated to staff.

Total cost of the township is projected to be US$12 billion and the expected gross development value (GDV) is double that amount.
