The Shwe natural gas and Myanmar-China oil transport projects are two of Myanmar’s largest energy projects.

The Chinese National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) operates the pipelines, and works with other companies on various aspects of operations...With a May 2013 deadline imposed by the companies for the completion of the pipelines, there has been renewed attention on the projects’ human rights impacts...In April 2013, EarthRights International (ERI) and Northern Shan Farmers’ Committee (NSFC) published two separate reports detailing alleged human rights impacts that the projects have had so far...Business & Human Rights Resource Centre sought responses to the reports by ERI and NSFC...from companies involved in the project. [CNPC, GAIL and Punj Lloyd responses included; National Energy Group of Companies declined to respond; Daewoo International, Hyundai Heavy Industries, KOGAS, ONGC Videsh did not respond; Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise and Myanmar Golder Crown did not respond.]
