  • The country is revising its National Energy Plan, including an objective of 50% of renewables in new power capacity and net-zero neutrality by 2065-2070.
  • The oil and gas sector is dominated by national company PTT.
  • State-owned electricity company EGAT dominates power generation, with 65% of total capacity.
  • Gas production has decreased by 30% since 2014.
  • Natural gas is by far the first energy source for power generation (65% in 2020).
  • Electricity prices have increased since 2016 due to higher fuel costs.
  • Energy consumption dropped by 8% in 2020 after slow growth over 2013 - 2019.
  • Oil products still account for 54% of final energy consumption.
  • The new National Energy Plan 2022 may significantly increase the share of renewables at the expense of gas and coal.
  • LNG development and gas market liberalisation remain strategic to secure gas imports and reserves.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is responsible for energy policy development through the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO). The National Energy Policy Committee (NEPC), chaired by the Prime Minister, is the decision-making body.

  • Energy Companies


    Petroleum Authority of Thailand (PTT) is the national oil company (63.5% public, of which 51.1% directly and 12.4% through the Vayupak Fund).

  • Energy Supply


    The production of liquid hydrocarbons (crude oil and NGL) has been decreasing slightly since 2016 (-4%/year), after a rapid increase between 2000 and 2016 (6%/year).

  • Energy Prices


    Motor fuel prices are deregulated. Unleaded premium gasoline stood at US$0.94/l in 2020 and diesel at US$0.72/l.

    Gasoline prices in Thailand are two time higher than in Malaysia, while diesel prices are 70% higher. Compared to Vietnam, the difference is around 10-15%.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption dropped in 2020 by 8% to 1.8 toe; per capita electricity consumption also decreased in 2020 to 2 670 kWh (-4%).

    Total energy consumption increased at a rapid pace between 2000 and 2013 (+4.7%/year), but noticeably slowed down from 2013 to 2019 (+1%/year). In 2020, energy consumption plummeted by 8% to 129 Mtoe.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Pending the official release of the National Energy Plan (NEP) 2022, the Thailand Integrated Energy Blueprint (TIEB) 2015 remains in force and defines the energy trajectory until 2036. Oil demand is expected to increase by 3.3%/year until 2036 in the BAU scenario.

    The 50% objective of renewables in new power capacity should change the role of gas and coal-fired power generation.
