    Myanmar : Natural gas export tops US$2 bln in ten months

    October 6, 2021 - Al Bawaba Business


      MYANMARS exports of natural gas are estimated at US$2.194 billion in the past ten months (October-July) of the current financial year 2020-2021, the Commerce Ministrys data showed.

      Natural gas is included in the list of major export items of Myanmar. About six per cent of the countrys total export earnings come from the sale of natural gas. There are 53 onshore blocks and 51 offshore blocks, totaling 104 blocks.

      A total of 25 onshore blocks and 31 offshore blocks are being operated under foreign investment. Natural gas extraction is being made at the Yadana, the Yedagun, the Shwe, and the Zawtika offshore blocks as well as onshore drilling blocks, according to the statement of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy. The Shwe natural gas field, located offshore from Rakhine State, was discovered in 2014.

      Natural gas extracted from the field is exported to China. The Yadana natural gas project is being carried out by the TOTAL Company, with its pipeline supplying natural gas to Thailand. Natural gas is also extracted in Yedagun, located offshore from Taninthayi Region and discovered in 1992. The Zawtika Project in the Gulf of Mottama mainly supplies natural gas to neighbouring Thailand.

      Production at Yadana and Yedagun is declining, and those projects will be halted in the coming years. Myanmars exports of natural gas stood at $3.5 billion in the 2019-2020FY, $3.9 billion in the 2018-2019FY, $3.5 billion in the 2017-2018FY, $3.116 billion in the 2016-2017FY, and $3.445 billion in the 2015-2016FY, as per Commerce Ministry data.
