This paper attempts to provide a comprehensive, albeit compact, account of the development of oil palm plantations on peatland in Sarawak and the prospect it offers. The writer firmly believes that palm oil is the cheapest seed oil to produce oils and that it also has an important role to play in carbon sync for purposes of sequestration of gaseous CO2 into solid carbon in the form of biomass and this ensures the sustainability of production of the oil it produces.In tracing the course of its development, the writer brings to light some of the major issues and challenges.
