Civil society groups in Cambodia have voiced their concern over a recent threat by Prime Minister Hun Sen to cancel an oil exploration license with Chevron. The Cambodian leader has warned he'll terminate Chevron's offshore drilling rights if the company doesn't start producing oil by the end of 2012. It's prompted fears Cambodia could lose a committed and valuable investment partner.
