Thailand has called off a plan for its state-run power producer to import up to 1.5 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per annum from Malaysia’s Petronas, a Thai official said on Friday.
Thailand’s National Energy Policy Council (NEPC) changed its mind this week on a decision in 2017 to have the state-run Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) import up to 1.5 million tonnes of LNG annually.
That in effect cancelled EGAT’s plan to sign a long-term contract with Malaysia’s state oil and gas company Petronas , which won a bid in June this year to supply the LNG to the Thai utility, an EGAT official told Reuters on Friday.

Some photos taken during my recent dive trip to Krabi and Phi Phi. Photos can also be seen here. Donate money so I can get better equipment. My dive computer is suicidal at the moment, rebooting itself during a dive.

I’ve been out of the country. As part of the tour, we had food at Muslim restaurants from Chiang Mai northwards (and westwards as well).
I am not sure whether this group of restaurants base their dining selection off a proto-menu, or whether this is typical local fare.
Anyone have recommendations where to go in Chiang Mai for shopping should I happen to be there again soon?

Continuing my expansion of the above article, I thought I would list down the operators and comments of the acreage listed.
Blok A18 – as the original author says, the acreage is operated by the Carigali Hess Operating Company (CHOC
as its known to friends). It’s located in the Malaysia Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA)
- Blok B17 – the PSC for this area is PETRONAS Carigali (JDA) Sdn Bhd, also in the JDA.
- Block C19 – the PSC for this area is Carigali-PTTEP International Operating Company (CPOC), also in the JDA.
- PM3 – operated by Talisman (Malaysia) Ltd.
- Sub-Blok Ular – operated by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB).
- PM301 & PM302 – CS Mutiara, though I’m not sure if they have had to relinquish the acerage yet. It’s interesting to note that this aceragetouches the Kelantanese shoreline.
- PM303 – Shell, PSC awarded in 1999, though yet to produce.
So, of the fields listed by the author, 3 are in the JDA, one is in Kelantanese waters, and the rest are in Terengganu waters.
It’s interesting to note that we do not have a JDA for disputed resources between Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Would that have reduced the amount of hydrocarbons that could be claimed by Sabah and Sarawak?
