Infrastructure, safety standards needed for LPG industry to take off

 

The government is now more than half way through its term and time is running out for it to make good on its promise to double Myanmar’s supply of electricity within the next two years.

But the government is not without backup plans to help it achieve its goals, one of which is replacing the use of electricity for household cooking with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
 By the time its term is up in 2020, the government wants at least 1.5 million households across Myanmar to be cooking with LPG, which will free up more power to electrify the cities and industrial zones.
But while investments for the import, storage and distribution of LPG in Myanmar has risen over the past year, industry insiders say the government may not meet its deadline to make LPG available at the targeted scale.
 Limited supply chain
One reason is the lack of infrastructure enabling LPG to be […]

Oxford Business Group Interview: Ken Tun

In what ways can the country more effectively provide electricity to its rural population?
KEN TUN: Myanmar urgently needs electricity. Today only 3m households out of some 10m have access to the power grid. Under the National Electrification Plan, the World Bank has set out to deliver electricity to the remaining 7m households in the next 10 years by expanding the central power grid. In the meantime, the government is expected to provide pre-electrification through solar home systems for those families that will not be connected to the central power grid, at an estimated cost of $90m. Approximately 30,000 of these households are expected to be connected to electric power through mini-grid solutions.
The problem with the approach initially devised by the World Bank is that isolated areas and farmers cannot wait 15 years to have electricity. They need a faster solution and the only way to electrify rural areas in […]

Government strengthens aim of distributing LPG to a million households by 2020

 

The Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) is aiming to supply liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to one million households by 2020, U Win Khine, Minister of the MOEE said at a meeting with companies involved in the import, storage, distribution and marketing of LPG last week.

LPG can replace the use of electricity as a fuel for household cooking, which will help to conserve power as well as the environment. This will be beneficial to residents in rural areas, who do not have access to electricity, the minister said.
 After distributing LPG to 150,000 households in 2017, the next step is to reach a million more by 2020. “The government and private sector will work together to expand the LPG industry in Myanmar so that it is able to supply the quantities needed,” U Win Khine said.
Last December, Parami Energy Services Company won a K6.5 billion government tender involving the lease […]

Parami Energy readies imported LPG for sale as demand rises

The government is aiming to replace the use of electricity with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) as a fuel for household cooking. If widely used, LPG can reduce the use of firewood as well as electricity when cooking, which will help to conserve power as well as the environment.

Last year, the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) launched a K6.5 billion tender involving the lease of a jetty, terminal and storage facility at the Thanlyin refinery in Yangon Region, for the purpose of importing, storing and distributing LPG in Myanmar.
 A total of 21 companies sought tender applications but only nine submitted proposals. Of these, privately-owned Parami Energy Services Company ultimately beat oil company Puma Energy to win the tender in August last year.
It is the first time the government has leased out state-owned facilities under a Public-Private Partnership for the import, storage and distribution of LPG in Myanmar. In the […]

Quality infrastructure development contributes to Myanmar’s sustainable economic growth

AsiaNet 70648

YANGON, Myanmar and TOKYO, Oct. 23, 2017 (Antara/Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet) –

High-quality infrastructure will play an essential role in realizing economic growth and unlocking Myanmar’s true potential. The important role of quality infrastructure development and Japan’s indispensable role in Myanmar’s sustainable development were the main theme of discussion at the “Dialogue for Quality Infrastructure — Building Asia’s Future,” hosted by the Government of Japan.

While the event was attended by about a hundred participants, active discussions were held on what kind of quality infrastructure is needed for Myanmar’s sustainable development and how Japan can play an important role.

Councilor Kazuyuki Takimi at the Embassy of Japan in Myanmar stated in his opening remarks on behalf of the Government of Japan that “quality infrastructure is the principle for developing countries to develop appropriate infrastructure within limited resources.” He also said, “We will continue to contribute to Myanmar’s infrastructure development with Japan’s wealth […]

Government to provide LPG to Yangon households

 
The government aims to cut electricity use in Yangon Region with the distribution of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to 150,000 households in December, a senior energy official said on Thursday.

The move was also aimed at reducing the using of wood for cooking in order to conserve the environment, according to Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) Deputy Permanent Secretary U Htay Aung.

“With these objectives, we plan to distribute LPG first to Yangon Region for 150,000 households,” he said in a press briefing.
 Parami Energy Service Co. has just won the rental tender for the state-owned No.1 Refinery (Thanlyin), U Htay Aung said.
“Many companies were interested but as it is not easy to distribute 4000 tons of LPG at one time, only 9 firms competed and Parami Energy Service Co. which submitted the highest price won the tender,” U Aung Myint, Director from Myanma Petrochemical Enterprise (MPE), said.

Parami Energy Service Co. will […]
