PetroChina Company Limited (HKG:0857) Protested by Myanmar Nationals
- PetroChina submitted a development plan of Block 58, in Peru, to state energy agency PeruPetro.
- The plan calls for drilling 60 wells in six years to tap the 3.9 Tcf gas reserves in the block.
- The uncertainty lies in the gas pipeline construction, which was suspended as a result of the Odebrecht scandal.
- Submission of the $2 billion development plan will have impact on local gas and world LNG markets beginning 2023; it implies PetroChina has its own corruption bust behind it.
- Myanmar nationals protesting construction of Chinese pipeline
- Almost 600 residents of the port town of Kyaukphyu in Myanmar’s Rakhine state are protesting Chinese oil tankers, that have moved into the region to start construction of a $1.5 billion pipeline meant to diversify China’s oil sources
