Myanmar announces offshore license winners (OilOnline)
While Myanmar is traditionally known to be a net importer of oil, it has the potential to hold undiscovered offshore oil and gas reserves. According to BP’s annual global analysis report 2012, Myanmar has a reported 7.8 trillion cubic feet of proven natural gas reserves, estimated to be worth 75 US billion. While a portion of this gas is located onshore, a significant portion is expected to be found in blocks located offshore.
Last year, Myanmar began the process of selecting a short list of foreign investors that would be given rights to explore the oil and gas resources in seas off the country’s coast. Of the many applicants, 61 companies were shortlisted. The winners of these blocks were announced on Wednesday.
Berlanga Holding B.V. won the offshore Block M-8, located in the shallow-water area south of the Irrawady River delta.

I’d personally like to thank the Carnarvon team for their support in reshaping the vision and strategy of the Company and for working tirelessly on completing this transaction in very challenging industry conditions. Carnarvon now has the cash to ensure it can add value in the Phoenix area through further exploration and appraisal activities, fund ongoing corporate costs through the $32 million receivable linked to Thailand oil field revenue and grow the business through further exploration activities, such as those relating to its 100 percent held Cerberus blocks in the Carnarvon Basin.”
