Myanmar Energy Industry Energy Technology Revolution to be Discussed at the leading Myanmar Oil & Gas, Power & Electricity Summit 2014

Share Article

Myanmar is fast becoming a leader in the Asian oil and gas market. Estimated to hold 50 million barrels of oil and around 7.8 trillion cubic feet of proven natural gas reserves worth around $75 billion.

Whilst in the past, Myanmar's oil and gas industry has suffered from insufficient foreign investment, a number of recent political reforms have fostered foreign investors' interest. Measures include government plans to reduce the income tax rate by 5% and extend the three-year tax holiday to five years, the launch of a series of licensing rounds and the issue of production-sharing contracts. With these reforms, comes a growing consensus that Myanmar is one to watch, particularly as an oil and gas power. Indeed, Myanmar has even been rated by some experts amongst the world's top five oil and gas hotspots.

Nevertheless, Myanmar's technical capacity and expertise remain under-developed. To reach its full potential, Myanmar must experience a technological revolution. This substantial demand for the latest technology and industry solutions will be addressed at the 3rd annual Oil & Gas Summit 2014, the largest Oil & Gas Exhibition in Myanmar. The Summit will be co-hosted alongside the extremely popular Myanmar Power and Electricity Summit 2014 on 27-28 January. The 2-day event will bring together some of the world's leading industry players to discover the latest investment opportunities, industry developments and to network with key industry players.

Delegates will include Energy ministers, senior Oil and Gas company representatives, contractors, local & international power producers, Investors, Generation/Transmission/Distribution companies, Service Companies and Solution-providers. They will have the chance to attend a Multi-Streamed Conference, Networking Evening, and 40 booth interactive exhibition, all in the comfort of the five-star venue in Yangon. A Business Match-Making Service will also be on offer to arrange one-on-one meetings between delegates.

High-Level speakers at the multi-streamed conference, some of whom have over 20 years of experience in Myanmar's energy industry, will be discussing the industry's most topical issues, including:
