West Malaysia, Sabah, cubic meters, natural gas reserves, uranium

Malaysia has several important natural resources. Forests cover nearly 50 percent of the land; Sabah and Sarawak are especially known for their tropical forests. West Malaysia has large deposits of tin and numerous rubber trees. Other minerals include copper and uranium. However, the country’s most important natural resources—and its most valuable exports—are oil and natural gas, found in offshore deposits. Petroleum reserves were estimated at 4.3 million barrels in the early 1990s, and natural gas reserves were about 2.2 billion cubic meters (77.7 billion cubic feet).
