BALIK PULAU: The proposed Penang South Reclamation Scheme (SRS) may change the continental shelf of Penang and encroach into international waters, says Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

He said the continental shelf allowed under the current law was three nautical miles (5.5km) from the shore, but if the proposed project is reclaimed between 3km and 4km, the state’s continental shelf would change.
