Lahad Datu Sabah LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in Sabah, Malaysia. It was to supply gas to an adjacent 300-megawatt combined cycle power plant, with capacity of 0.76 mtpa. An agreement for the terminal was made in 2012 by Petronas and Sabah Energy, with operation planned for 2015.
Petronas announced that the project was put on hold after the territorial conflict known as the Lahad Datu armed intrusion or Lahad Datu territorial standoff, in February 2013. In 2016 the project was called off, due to "prolonged uncertainty," according to the project sponsors.
