Sipitang Oil & Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP)

Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP), located on a 4,065 acres site, will serve as a new focal point for oil and gas investment within the Sabah, Brunei and Labuan economic centres. The availability of oil and natural gas found off the shores of Sabah allow for development of industries that utilise oil and natural gas, especially the petrochemical industry which involves ammonia derivatives (Caprolactam, Diammonium Phosphate, Ammonium Sulphate and Ammonium Nitrate), urea derivatives (NPK, Melamine, and Urea-Formaldehyde), bulk storage, refinery and fabrication

SOGIP is located in Mengalong, Sipitang which is 145 kilometres from Kota Kinabalu and its location is in close proximity to Labuan and Brunei Bay as shown in Figure 1. The existing site condition in SOGIP is flat and a large part of the area is generally sandy. Both basic infrastructures (road, drainage and port facilities) and utilities (water, electricity and telecommunications) will be available in SOGIP for investors to utilise in operating their businesses.

Managed by Sipitang Oil and Gas Development Corporation (SOGDC), the entire site is expected to be equipped with the necessary logistical infrastructure, amenities and residential, commercial and retail developments.

SOGIP has the following strengths as an integrated industrial park:

  • The site offers logistic advantages being located at a sheltered area of Brunei Bay, nearby to major shipping lanes and close proximity to Labuan and Brunei
  • Natural water depth (16m-25m) which able to cater Single Buoy Mooring (SBM) for VLCC's 
  • Availability of natural gas pipeline infrastructure (Sabah Sarawak Gas Pipeline)
  • Readily available market for agriculture products as it’s the major industry in Sabah.
  • Basic infrastructure facilities, utilities and general amenities such as water supply, electricity supply, jetties and road will be constructed on the site.
  • Opportunity of  tax incentives to SOGIP Investors as per in Figure 2:

Spearheading SOGIP development is currently the on-going construction of Sabah Ammonia Urea (SAMUR). SAMUR project will cost approximately RM4.6 billion (USD1.5 billion) and produces about 1.2 million tonnes per annum of granulated urea. Further development of petrochemicals sector is guided by the estimated gas availability and gas composition.
