Frontier Oil and Gas Exploration Still Exists – A Story from Onshore Myanmar

Presented by Krista Davies



The Union of Myanmar has had oil exploration since the first hand-dug wells were sunk in the Central Burma basin around 900 AD. In the 1880’s Burmah Oil Company drilled the first cable tool wells in 1889 in Yenangyaung, resulting in the “discovery” of the Yenangyaung Oil Field. So how can onshore Myanmar be considered a frontier region for oil and gas exploration? Changes in governments, civil and world wars, destruction of assets to protect national resources and a country locked in time for decades have all led to the perfect storm for Myanmar being a country rich in oil and gas resources but vastly underexplored. We share the story of Pacific Hunt Energy and its frontier assets in rich petroleum provinces.
