Malaysia is rich in natural resources both in terms of conventional resources such as oil, gas, and coal as well as in renewable resources such as hydro, biomass and solar energy. Malaysia is a significant Southeast Asian producer of oil and natural gas. Malaysia’s western coast runs alongside the Strait of Malacca, an important route for seaborne energy trade that links the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

Malaysia is a net exporter of oil and natural gas. It is one of the world’s leading exporters of liquefied natural gas. Malaysia is promoting coal as a fuel of choice for power generation to free up more natural gas for export.

Malaysian government is also promoting energy production by use of renewable resources like hydroelectricity, geothermal, agricultural biomass, and solar power.
