Total: In talks to supply LNG to Yangon

French energy firm Total SA is reportedly in talks with Myanmar to supply liquified natural gas to Yangon.

An article in the Bangkok Post quoted general manager of Total E&P Myanmar Mr Xavier Preel as saying the company is also con-sidering building a power plant in the country.

“We are quite confident that Myanmar will develop in a big way,” said Preel. “Access to electricity is the most important economic factor to Myanmar,” he said, adding that there can be no economic development without investment in energy.
