    This from Bangkok post only twelve months ago.

    After more than two decades in Myanmar, PTTEP is well positioned to deal with any changes in energy needs as well as regulation
    27/02/2012
    Umesh Pandey, Editor for Asia Focus

    Resource-rich Myanmar is poised to be a major contributor to Thailand's future energy needs, including gas and possibly electricity from hydropower dams planned for the years ahead.

    "Myanmar may account for up to 10% of our total investments in the years to come and the country would supply up to 25% of Thailand's need for natural gas," says Anon Sirisaengtaksin, the president and CEO of PTT Exploration and Production Plc.

    The exploration arm of Thailand's largest energy company is no stranger to Myanmar, having begun operations there in 1989. And despite Myanmar's troubled political past, internal strife and occasional conflicts that resulted in border closures, natural gas supplies from Myanmar to Thailand have never been disrupted, says Mr Anon.


    Could it be that the undignified International scramble to be "New best friends" with Myanmar (Or is it Burma?) over the last twelve months has led to "Fresh bids" for all those lovely Oil and Gas Reserves....?*Cha Ching*
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    Lack of reserve generating capacity blamed on low water supplies
    Noppol said the spinning reserve was low partly because hydropower plants have been unable to run at full capacity because of low water levels.
    ... because they let the water drain out ahead of a 'dry' wet season!
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!
