Myanmar: Japan energy giant ENEOS to withdraw from Yetagun gas project

[Japan energy giant Eneos to exit natural gas project in Myanmar] 2 May 2022

Japanese energy giant Eneos Holdings Inc. said Monday it will exit from a natural gas project in Myanmar due to political turmoil in the Southeast Asian country.

Eneos' subsidiary, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp., has a 40 percent stake in a Tokyo-based joint company taking part in the project.

The joint firm Nippon Oil Exploration (Myanmar), which owns a 19.3 percent interest in Myanmar's Yetagun gas fields, notified its business partners of the decision on Friday, Eneos said in a statement. The Japanese government is the top shareholder of the joint company with a 50 percent stake, with Mitsubishi Corp. having the remaining 10 percent.

Eneos said JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration, which has a stake of 19.3 percent in the project, took into consideration "the country's current situation, including the social issues, and project economics based on the technical evaluation" of the gas fields.

According to the statement by Eneos, the withdrawal will be effective after approval from the Myanmar government.
