Rosneft Plans Multidimensional Cooperation with Thailand

02 September 2016

Rosneft and PTT Public Company Limited (Thailand) signed a Cooperation Agreement at the Eastern Economic Forum. The document was signed by Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin and PTT Public Company Limited President and Chief Executive Officer Tevin Vongvanich.

The document sets the ground for multilateral cooperation development between the companies in the areas of upstream, crude and oil product trading, refining, petrochemical projects, and LNG supplies. In particular, the agreement confirms the intention of both parties to conclude in the near future a long-term contract to supply crude oil and other feedstock to PTT.

Through cooperation with the largest energy company in Thailand Rosneft will enter one of the most lucrative energy markets in the Asia-Pacific Region. The country's economy demonstrates stable growth, which allows to forecast a further increase in demand for energy sources. Moreover, recent changes in the fiscal regime in Thailand will promote economic efficiency of energy product supplies to the local market.

Commenting on the signed document, Igor Sechin said: “The agreements reached confirm our commitment to efficient expansion of our operation geography to the growing points of the global economy. We see significant potential of our cooperation with PTT, which may be embodied not only in upstream, crude and product supplies, but also in LNG trading considering the expansion of Map Ta Phut terminal and natural decline in gas production in Thailand”.
