  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The economy relies on resource-based industries with the biggest contribution to the GDP coming from extractive industries, especially oil and gas, and forest products. Natural gas is the country's most important source of export revenues (US$3.4 bn in fiscal year (FY) 2017-2018, i.e. more than 20% of total export value).

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production is low and stable (0.5 Mt in 2018). Net crude oil exports amounted to 0.25 Mt and net oil product imports to 6.8 Mt in 2018.

    The country's refining capacity amounts to 51 000 bbl/d, distributed in three small refineries: Thanlyin (20 000 bbl/d), Thanbayakan (25 000 bbl/d) and Chauk (6 000 bbl/d). The refineries are old and their utilisation rate is low (around 10%).

  • Energy Prices


    In 2018, the prices were US$0.60/l for gasoline and US$0.71/l for diesel. They have increased by 28% and 19%, respectively, since 2016 due to a continued rise in international oil prices.

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2018, consumption per capita was 0.44 toe. Electricity consumption per capita remains among the lowest in Asia (around 350 kWh in 2018 vs 1 380 kWh in the ASEAN).

    Total energy consumption has been rising rapidly by 8%/year on average since 2013, reaching 24 Mtoe in 2018.

  • Issues & Prospects


    The Energy Master Plan forecasts that the share of hydropower will decrease to 57% in 2030 and the share of natural gas will account for just 8% of the total power generation. Coal-based power generation will increase significantly, with the share of coal increasing to 30%. Solar PV will make up 5% of the total power capacity in 2030.
