Will Norwegian Companies invest in (r)

Subject: Re: Will Norwegian Companies invest in Burma?

but haven't seen), my understanding is that the Unocal/Total/MOGE pipeline will 
now allow for a "link" on the Burma side to power a fertilizer plant.

I wonder if it's the same plant the Norwegian companies are thinking of.
