Adenan: Bintulu needs modern medical facilities
by Yunus Yussop reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on April 14, 2014, Monday

BINTULU: The expansion of Columbia Asia Hospital here is timely as Bintulu has grown from a village of barely 5,000 people to an industrial town with over a quarter million people.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Adenan Satem said the Bintulu of today thus required modern medical facilities and healthcare services.

“With modern facilities, various diseases that cannot be detected in the past with just traditional treatment can now be cured,” he said at the ground-breaking ceremony of Columbia Asia Hospital Bintulu expansion project and the development of Columbia Commercial Centre at Jalan Tan Sri Ikhwan in Tanjung Kidurong yesterday.

Adenan said mainly because of the oil and gas industry, Bintulu had developed to what it is today, and would continue to grow and prosper.

“The development of Samalaju will boost Bintulu as an industrialised city. A private hospital is required. It is a must-have criterion for a developing town like Bintulu.

Bintulu is in Sarawak, which is owned by Taib and family.

To me, the development of Bintulu is not a great achievement, but is just "a donation for barisan votes".

If a town in kelantan, penang or selangor maju, only then will it be a great achievement.

Samalaju not far from Bintulu somemore, becoming an industrial town and quite possibly, key city of SCORE.

It going to have a naval based, afb and possibly the first marines based.
It would further contribute to population growth.

not boomtown at all, it have its own natural growth, bruneians and intl eco tourism even the decline of O&G, still Miri track history is longer than bintulu.

dont forget sarawak before malaysia formation first real oil was found in miri proxy 104 year ago..by Shell. smile.gif

Miri could upgrade itself be the training center for O&G and other research related with it. Just a matter of time.

for bintulu its clearly MLNG, without MLNG, bintulu would be in decline state as sibu now as sibu history still with the route to interior sarawak and timbers.

guess the timber tycoon forgot about sustainability and left nothing for this town who also gave their own first wealth growth

Bintulu not only have MLNG but also Shell MDS (world first GTL plant started on 1997), ABF (urea granular plant owned by Petronas), BCOT (Crude oil terminal), BORF (onshore gas conditioning plant owned by Murphy Oil Sarawak Co. Ltd), SOGT Transit gas terminal plant and many more

Those PSC's operator who currently have operation based at Bintulu is PCSB (Temana field), Murphy Oil, Shell, BC Petroleum (JV between Dialog and ROC Oil Australia), RH Petrogas Ltd, Paxco Energy, Newfield (already exiting and their field bought over by SapuraKencana Energy Sdn Bhd) and many more.

Not to mention O&G service provider who has their base at Bintulu. Thats why orang luar meramei Bintulu like crazy these days.

Train 9 LNG and Floating LNG vessel will be coming soon. Kedak sardin liao Bintulu dudi ari klak. Trust me

Lived there once at Kemena way back in the early 90's. There is only one hotel that worth staying, the only fast food is sugar bun and the airport runaway is behind a shop lot.

And when the day is hot you can smell the gas from Kidurong
