Othsman Hassan signed an exclusive deal on April 19 with the Petroleum Authority
of Thailand to import and distribute oil, natural gas and petroleum. "This deal
will help improve relations between Thai and Cambodian businesses," Hassan said.
The CPP legislator added that his company, Camoil Company Limited, would supply both
wholesale and retail outlets. Sister company Camgas Limited would invest $1 million
in gas storage, while Camoil would spend "at least" $2 million to store
oil. Hassan said he was awaiting government approval to import fuel overland.
