Thailand signs petroleum deal in Rangoon
Thailand-miday Thailand relocated to safeguard further Burma's interest in Burma in oil as well as in natural resources, and ratified an exploratory crude in Rangoon, testified by Thailand's energy minister Viset Choopiban. Mrigadat Maroot, PTT Exploration and Production Chairman, who is a signatory to the Memorandum of Understanding, on Monday declared his company's intention in a declaration to the Thai Exchanges.
"It is in line with the company's overall expansion abroad," said Maroot. This agreement means that PTTEP - 64 per cent state-owned - has sole right to prospect the M-11 unit in the Gulf of Martaban, where it will conduct prospecting and drilling a well. So far, no comprehensive evaluation has been made in the bloc, although "it is in a very auspicious area," says PTTEP spokesperson Sidhichai Jayant.
Until recently, PTTEP's negotiation with the Myanmaroilfields and Gas Enterprises was "very calm," he added. PTTEP's value of investing in M-11 was not immediately clear, although it is believed that the firm has received the usual three-year fiscal leave from the Myanmar authorities, which only brings in cash when producing it.
The M-11 is the youngest of five blocs that PTTEP has hedged off the Burmese Arakan state since the end of 2003 and in which it intends to inject more than USD 23 million over the next five years. The PTTEP also has a 19 per cent share in the disputed Yadana natural gas line.
Total, a France-based enterprise that has come under fire internationally for its involvement in a supposedly infringing humanitarian law projects, is the controlling shareholder.
