Myanmar LPGtrade Summit

15-16 Nov, 2018 - Yangon, MYANMAR

Meliá Yangon

“Accelerate Import, Storage, Distribution &
Marketing – LPG for Myanmar!”

"Government strengthens aim of distributing LPG to a million households by 2020"
Myanmar Times, 29 Mar 2018

LPG can replace the use of electricity as a fuel for household cooking, which will help to conserve power as well as the environment. This will be beneficial to residents in rural areas, who do not have access to electricity, the minister said.

After distributing LPG to 150,000 households in 2017, the next step is to reach a million more by 2020. “The government and private sector will work together to expand the LPG industry in Myanmar so that it is able to supply the quantities needed,” U Win Khaing said.

Myanmar does not have the infrastructure needed to produce its own LPG, thus providing opportunities for imports from the regional and international markets.  The lack of infrastructure also give rise to investment opportunities for refineries upgrading and LPG logistics infrastructure.

Myanmar's LPG utilisation is currently the lowest among all the ASEAN countries, thus LPG awareness and usage promotion is in tandem with the supply chain development.  At present, Myanmar imports around 5,000 tonnes to 7,000 tonnes of LPG, which is sufficient to meet just 5 percent of the total number of households in the country.  Much of the imported LPG is now used for commercial purposes, such as in hotels, restaurants, tea shops and factories.

With the liberalization of Myanmar's LPG sector that allows private sector participation, the government aims to bring LPG to 150,000 out of the 10 million households by 2018 and 2 million households by 2020.

From export opportunities, LPG terminals, storage, distribution and safety, fresh new opportunities are opening up in Myanmar to support the growth of the LPG usage.  Get fresh updates on these developments and progress at CMT's Myanmar LPGtrade Summit.  Multiple benefits to affirm your participation:

Myanmar Boosts LPG Import, Storage and Distribution

Posted on : 18 Jul, 2018

LPG penetration in Myanmar remains quite low. Some estimates show that the only 3% of the households use LPG, and in most rural areas people still rely on charcoal for cooking. The country’s LPG consumption is considerably lower compared to neighbouring Thailand - with Myanmar’s consumption estimated to be around 40 times less than Thailand.
However, the country’s Ministry of Electricity & Energy (MoEE) aims to supply 1.5m households with LPG by 2020, up from just 150,000 last year.
Myanmar’s domestic LPG production accounts for only less than 10% of the consumption, the bulk of existing domestic LPG demand is imported from Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia – brought in by land in trucks -  until recently. The government is now focused on increasing import and distribution infrastructure for LPG. Already there are several new investments from local and foreign players to meet the growing demand.
Local energy firm Elite Petrochemical is building Myanmar’s first private sector LPG processing, handling and infrastructure facility. The US$128 million LPG import and distribution facility, in the Thilawa SEZ, has already inaugurated the first phase of the project in May this year.
The project includes a terminal and hub that features a jetty for cargo handling and a 3,000-tonne storage tank farm. In the next phase, Elite will expand storage capacity to 25,000 tonnes of LPG and up to 100,000 tonnes of other fuel products.
Last year, Parami Energy Group secured a MMK6.5 billion (US$4.9 million) tender from the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MoEE) to build a jetty, terminal and storage facility at the Thanlyin refinery in the Yangon Region. This is the first time a private company was allowed to lease state-owned LPG facilities. The planned facility aims to handle about 8000-10,000 tonnes of LPG per month once ongoing upgrades are completed.
Asia AVA Gas formed a JV with Myanma Petrochemical Enterprise (MPE) for a LPG import, storage and distribution project at Bogyoke, Thalyin district. To be built at a cost of US$60 million, the project will create a storage capacity of 12,000 tonnes, as well as jetties for unloading carriers and a gas-filling plant.
Despite the increase in private sector investments, Myanmar still has to address its shortage and trans-shipment facilities and build modern filling points to transfer the fuel from large depots to smaller cylinders for retail. Another bottleneck is to reach remote areas – that require specialised tankers. It is expected to be met by  suppliers.
MPE has already licensed 15 new privately operated filling stations across the country, and granted approval to some 600 companies to either use LPG or operate in the segment.
