State Administration Council Chairman Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing emphasized that oil refineries, which have ceased operations for various reasons, must resume functioning to address the domestic energy shortage.
The Senior General conveyed this message during his inspection tour of the progress in re-operating the No 1 Oil Refinery (Thanlyin) of the Myanma Petrochemical Enterprise, located in Thanlyin Township, Yangon, on 17 December.
He suggested considering the total costs of importing gasoline and comparing them to the expenses if local oil refineries are re-operated to produce the necessary energy for domestic use.
In his briefing, the Senior General prioritized the resumption of functions at the No 1 Oil Refinery (Thanlyin), with plans for subsequent upgrades. He stressed the importance of implementing necessary tactical steps to re-operate the Thanlyin Oil Refinery as soon as possible, as it is expected to fulfil domestic energy requirements effectively. — TWA/ TMT
