“Burma’s Ministry of Energy [MoE] is extracting an average of almost 1,300 million cubic feet of natural gas per day from its onshore and offshore blocks,” said retired petroleum and natural gas production official Kyaw Thu Ya.

“The MoE is extracting 68 million cubic feet of natural gas per day from onshore blocks and 1,200 million cubic feet per day from offshore blocks, a total of 1,268 million cubic feet of natural gas each day,” he said.

Crude oil and natural gas are extracted in upper Burma, in Pyay, the Irrawaddy Delta, the Rakhine coast, and Mottama and Tenasserim offshore areas.

Kyaw Thu Ya said that just 278 million cubic feet of natural gas fulfils the domestic demand.
