Yadana Gas Field Project Underway in Myanmar

Myanmar is carrying out a development project of the Yadana gas field at
Mottama offshore with three foreign oil companies, the local press said
today.  According to the New Light of Myanmar, the project is undertaken by
the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise of the Energy Ministry in partnership
with the Total Myanmar France, the Unocal of the U.S. and the PTT of
Thailand.  Contracts to sell the gas to Thailand were signed earlier this
year.  Villages in the Kanbauk area in Yebuy town the inland area where the
gas pipeline will pass are also participating in the project.  The Myanmar
Livestock Breeding and Fisheries Cooperative Syndicate is engaged in prawn
breeding, pig breeding, dairy products and animal feed processing of the
development project, said the report.  The foreign companies contributed
about 12 million kyats (2 million US dollars) to the project, while the
cooperative syndicate provides pedigree stocks, feed stuff and technical
assistance, the report added.
