The Star daily reported the two countries signed a deal Friday that could lead to 400 megawatts of power being supplied from Sarawak state to Brunei within the next two or three years.

The two countries will conduct a feasibility study for the project. The deal is part of an initiative to set up a wider power grid on Borneo island, where both Sarawak and Brunei are located.

The Sunday report said power cables are expected to be operational by 2012. The report cited Sarawak Public Utilities Minister Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan.

Officials could not immediately be reached to confirm the report.
