PTT has announced the annual maintenance schedules for four major gas fields which supply natural gas to Thailand.
The details are as follows:
Yadana, Myanmar: February 20-23, leading to the missing of about 1,100 million cubic feet per day (mcfpd).
Zawtika, Myanmar: 10 days in March, leading to the missing of about 640 mcfpd.
Yetagun, Myanmar: 10 days in April, leading to the missing of about 570 mcfpd.
JDA-A18: during July and August, leading to the missing of about 420 mcfpd.
Noppadol Pinsupa, senior executive vice president of PTT, assured that the maintenance shutdown would not affect demand, through preparation with the energy regulator, gas suppliers and industrial users.
He said PTT has tried to schedule the maintenance for the dates when demand is low.
"PTT is studying and developing the energy network to reduce the risks from missing supply, to meet our mission in maintaining energy security," he said.
