EGAT plans a 1.4 GW gas-fired power plant in Southern Thailand

22 Jul 2021

The Thai power utility Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) plans to build a 1,400 MW gas-fired power plant in Surat Thani, in southern Thailand. The THB34bn (US$1bn) plant will replace two coal-fired projects in Krabi and Songkhla's Thepha district in Southern Thailand, which are expected to be shelved. Commissioning is scheduled between 2027 and 2029. EGAT will team up with the oil and gas group PPT to develop a 3 Mt/year (4.1 bcm/year) LNG import terminal adjacent to the power plant, replacing a 5 Mt/year (6.75 bcm/year) floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) moored in the Gulf of Thailand.
