Thai natural gas demand seen up in 2013

BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand’s natural gas demand is expected to rise 10 percent to about 5 billion cubic feet per day (cfd) in 2013 due to the country’s strong economic growth, a senior official at the energy ministry said on Monday.

Of the amount, about 3.8 billion cubic feet will come from the Gulf of Thailand and the remaining 1.2 billion from Myanmar, Songpope Polachan, director-general of the ministry’s Mineral Fuels Department, told reporters.

Natural gas fields in the Gulf of Thailand will continue to produce about 3.8 billion cfd in the next five years and after that production will gradually fall because there will be no additional fields, Songpope said.
