14 March 2014 was the closing date for submission of feedback on the draft Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment for Phase 2 of the Seri Tanjung Pinang project, involving 891 acres of land reclamation. According to E&O, the DOE issued its approval letter on 10 April. That is super quick – less than four weeks.
