      Myanmar Oil & Gas Infrastructure Overview

      • 20 Jan 2022
      • Myanmar
      • Oil & Gas

      In spite of a sizeable domestic fuels deficit and an undersupplied consumer market, high risk factors curb investor appetite for new refinery developments and upgrades in Myanmar’s downstream sector. A prolonged downturn forecast in global LNG prices have seen natural gas, LNG-related power projects worth almost 4,000MW in combined capacity secure government approvals over the past few quarters, although project risks continue to be high.

      Oil Storage

      Myanmar has not yet committed to any strategic crude oil stockpiling, although the National Energy Management Committee, an entity created to formulate energy policies and to assume oil stockpiling responsibilities from the Ministry of Energy, has plans to build up to 30 days of import cover by 2020 and 45 days by 2045.

      As shown below, there are seven fuel terminals operated by state-owned MPPE and MPE in Myanmar. In addition, China’s state-owned CNPC operates 12 crude oil storage tanks in Kyaukphyu with total capacity of 1.2Mcm (equivalent to 20,600b/d or 7% of 2018 consumption), while six privately-owned fuel terminals are in operation in Thilawa, with a combined storage capacity of over 303,000cu m (5,200b/d or 2% of 2018 consumption).
