Shwe Gas Movement in London 28-10-09
The SHWE Gas Movement is concerned with a natural gas pipeline project presently unfolding in Western Burma.
Burma-AsiaIn cooperation with Burma's military junta, a consortium of Indian and Korean corporations are currently exploring gas fields off the coast of Arakan State in Western Burma. Discovered in December 2003, these fields--labeled A-1, or "Shwe" (the Burmese word for gold)--are expected to hold one of the largest gas yields in Southeast Asia. These Shwe fields are destined to become the Burmese military government's largest single source of foreign income.
