Myanmar, one of the world’s first oil producers , has opened up rapidly since a civilian government took office last year. With the easing of Western sanctions, European oil firms will participate in Myanmar’s first oil exploration tender, but U.S. companies might wait for more concrete reforms, said the head of a local oil firm. After at least 15 years, this tender will be the first opportunity for U.S. oil firms to take part in Myanmar’s energy sector.
Ken Tun, chief executive of Myanmar’s Parami Energy said, “Europe are definitely interested and will participate in the next round, the United States is showing interest but do not know what type of vehicle they will use to get in.” He also added that it is expected that Myanmar will offer six new onshore blocks in the 2012 tender and re-offer nine or ten blocks from last year’s offer. The details are yet to be confirmed by the government. Parami Energy, one of the few privately-owned oil and gas firms in Myanmar, will team up with Vietnamese-Russian oil venture Vietsovepetro to bid for blocks.
Meanwhile, Thailand’s top energy firm, PTT Pcl said that it is planning a $2 billion - $3 billion investment in Myanmar projects. This includes a 150,000-barrel-per-day refinery, coal mines and a power plant. PTT’s Chief Operating Officer, Nattachat Charuchinda said, “We are preparing the investment plans for the Myanmar government, which should involve around $2-3 billion.” He also said that PTT planned to set up a subsidiary, PTT Myanmar, to oversee its investment in the country, where it also wants to have 60 petrol stations within 5 years. PTT’s proposed investment is among the biggest to be announced.
Myanmar is attracting heavy interest from Western countries, as well as Asian players who are keen to participate in the nation’s energy sector. The 2nd MOGP (Myanmar Oil, Gas & Power) Summit from 03-06 September 2012 in Yangon is structured to bring the latest advancements in the country’s oil, gas and power industry.

Myanmar is facing immense interest from foreign investors, chiefly due to the political and economic reforms in the country, plus countries lifting sanctions and improved diplomatic ties.
Australia’s Minister for Resources, Energy and Tourism, Martin Ferguson said his country is looking to build partnerships with foreign companies such as the US-based Chevron and Thailand’s PTT to invest in Myanmar. "We have encouraged Australian mining and petroleum companies to look at opportunities for oil and gas in Myanmar," he said at the World Economic Forum on East Asia. "Joint partnership is good, because we can share the expertise. Energy resources want huge investment up front, and we can share the risk and share the cost."
Mr Ferguson said investors are certainly looking forward to the implementation of political and fiscal reforms in the country.
The 2nd MOGP Summit on 03-06 September in Yangon, will discuss the latest on upstream petroleum (Oil & Gas) fiscal regime, Infrastructure roadmap for Oil, Gas & Power Sectors, updates on Investment Law and changes on Taxation, securing project financing facility for investment, and much more. The energy ministry will also announce details on Myanmar’s newest round of international bidding for onshore blocks.
