CNG Supply for Vehicles to Go Up

Authorities will increase the supply of compressed natural gas (CNG) for vehicles to meet the growing demand.

The factory for refining natural gas from offshore blocks is almost completed and many vehicles will be supplied with CNG without delay, state-run media reported.

While private CNG vehicles are facing scarcity of the gas, at least an additional 230 vehicles are on the waiting list, according to the report.

The Ministry of Energy is supplying natural gas from inland blocks to car owners and drivers, giving priority to public buses.

Currently, some 3,500 buses are operating in more than 360 bus lines in Yangon, carrying about 2 million people a day.

Myanmar produced 3.1 million barrels of crude oil and 8.6 billion cubic metres of natural gas in the first six months (April- September) of fiscal 2014-15, according to the Central Statistical Organization.
