PetroVietnam did not respond

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited PetroVietnam to respond to a report alleging that PetroVietnam is one of the oilfield services companies that “…have continued to work in Myanmar after the military’s attempted coup, helping the flow of gas – and revenues vital to the junta – to continue.” The report alleges that “A PetroVietnam subsidiary, PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation (PTSC) won a contract from POSCO International in June 2021 to build a steel jacket for a compression platform as part of Shwe Phase 3.” The report further alleges that “In September 2021…a PetroVietnam joint venture…commenced construction of two rig bases for the Zawtika expansion project...” and “In July 2022, PetroVietnam Coating JSC won a contract from PTTEP to coat a 9.5km marine pipeline.” The report asserts that “…oilfield services companies have made themselves complicit with the junta as it commits war crimes and crimes against humanity against the people of Myanmar.”
