JOHOR, Malaysia/JAKARTA: On the southernmost edge of the Asian landmass and on the shores of the busy shipping lanes of the Singapore Strait, Malaysia's Petronas is starting up a state-of-the art petroleum processing hub, called RAPID.

The huge complex in Malaysia's Johor province is currently testing its systems, running crude oil through its fuel processing units and labyrinth of pipes and producing large exhaust gas fires from its flare tower. The flames are clearly visible for miles around, including on Indonesian islands just across the narrow strait.
