Myanmar: PTTEP Enters into Partnership for M11 block

PTTEP entered into a partnership with TOTAL and JX NOEX for M11 block, in Myanmar, ready to drill one exploration well by the third quarter of next year.

Mr. Tevin Vongvanich, the President and CEO of PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited or PTTEP disclosed that PTTEP International Limited or PTTEPI, a wholly owned subsidiary of PTTEP already selected two strategic partners, Total E&P Myanmar and JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Myanmar) Limited or JX Myanmar, a wholly owned subsidiary of JX NOEX to join-hand for M11 block. TOTAL will hold 40% shares while JX NOEX will hold 15% shares. PTTEP still remains the operator holding 45% shares. The farm-out agreement is subject to the consent of the government of The Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

Mr. Tevin said that the partner’s selection for M11 is one of PTTEP strategies to manage investment’s risk especially for deep-water exploration. Moreover, it is a good opportunity to exchange knowledge and technology between the partners and explore future investment’s opportunity together. Additionally, TOTAL from France and JX NOEX from Japan are PTTEP’s long- time strategic partners in many projects such as Bongkot, Yadana, Yetagun and B6/27 projects and both companies have recognized worldwide in oil and gas exploration technology and experience.

M11 block covers the area of 5,373 square kilometers which located in deep-water in the Gulf of Martaban, The Republic of the Union of Myanmar. PTTEP received the exploration and production right of M11 block since 2005 and later the 2-D seismic survey and petroleum geology study were finalized. In March this year, PTTEP completed 3-D seismic survey in the high potential structure area. The partnership plans to drill one exploration well within the third quarter of next year.

At present, PTTEP has invested in 5 petroleum exploration and production projects in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar namely Yadana project, Yetagun project (two projects are in production phase), Zawtika project (this project is in development phase), Myanmar M3 & M11 project and Myanmar PSC G & EP 2 project (both projects are in exploration phase).

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
