An offshore supply base that will support offshore oil and gas production will be implemented and constructed by Myint & Associates in Ayeyawady Region, Ngayokkaung Township, Nanthapu. An environmental impact assessment (EIA) workshop over the project was held yesterday morning at Vantage Tower, Yangon.
In the years to come, offshore oil and gas production will develop. Myanmar didn’t have an international-level offshore supply base. We are relying on bases in Thailand and Singapore.
This is a waste of time and money. That is why Myint & Associates is arranging to set up an offshore supply base, said Myint & Associates Company Executive Director (Government & Public Affairs) U Tint Swe.
A study on the offshore supply base project affecting the natural environment, eco-system and human society was being conducted since September 2017, said Craig Reid, Country Manager of Environmental Resource Management which is consulted for environmental, health, safety, risk and social matters .
The offshore supply base is planned to be completed
in 2020-2021, and once it is completed, it will support offshore gas production in the offshore area of Rakhine State.
