PTTEP announces drilling result of appraisal well, Zawtika-5, in Myanmar M9 Block-Spotlight

In its effort to alleviate the hardship of the Myanmar people who were devastated by the cyclone Nargis, PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited or PTTEP is making preparation to send relief packages to Yangon. It has prepared diesel oil, food, portable water, towels, corrugated roofing sheets, hammers, and nails worth about 6 million baht. The packages will be loaded on the Royal Thai Air Force C 130 Hercules and transported to Yangon.

PTTEP CEO Mr Anon Sirisaengtaksin said PTTEP is concerned about the well being of the cyclone victims. In normal situation, PTTEP and its partners already give assistance to the people in Myanmar through their corporate social responsibility programs which included health care, education for young children and quality of life. In time of crisis like this, PTTEP wishes to see the situation returning to normal as quickly as possible which is why it joins hands with the Ministry of Energy to give assistance to the people there.

Mr Anon said that natural gas production at its projects in the Gulf of Mataban was not affected by the cyclone. Yetagun and Yadana Projects continued to produce natural gas as usual. M9, where PTTEP is the operator, was not affected either, because it is only at the development stage and there were no activities at the time of the cyclone. PTTEP office in Yangon; however, was affected by the shortage of electricity, food and fuel, making it inconvenient for the employees.
