Malaysia to supply power to Brunei

A newspaper in Malaysia has reported that the government has inked an unprecedented agreement with Brunei to supply power to the neighboring sultanate.

The Star daily reported the two countries signed a deal on Friday that could lead to 400 megawatts of power being supplied from the Malaysian state of Sarawak to Brunei within the next two or three years.

The two countries will conduct a feasibility study for the project.

The power deal is part of an initiative to set up a wider power grid on Borneo island in Southeast Asia, where both Sarawak and Brunei are located.

The Sunday report by the newspaper said that the power cables are expected to come online and become operational by 2012.

The report cited Sarawak Public Utilities Minister Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan.

Officials could not immediately be reached to confirm the newspaper report.
