Myanmar-China Oil and Gas Pipelines

The Myanmar-China Oil and Gas Pipelines project, including a crude oil pipeline and a natural gas pipeline, is an international cooperation project. The Myanmar-China Crude Oil Pipeline is jointly invested and constructed by CNPC and MOGE, which established a joint venture of South-East Asia Crude Oil Pipeline Company Limited (SEAOP) to operate and manage the pipeline. The Myanmar-China Gas Pipeline is jointly invested and constructed by CNPC, MOGE, POSCO International Corporation, ONGC Nile Ganga B.V., GAIL (India) Limited, and KG-SEAGP Co., Ltd., which established a joint venture of South-East Asia Gas Pipeline Company Limited (SEAGP) to operate and manage the pipeline.

The Myanmar-China Crude Oil Pipeline extends from Madè Island on the western coast of Myanmar to Ruili in China’s Yunnan Province, running through Rakhine, Magwe, Mandalay, and Shan in Myanmar. In May 2017, the Myanmar-China Crude Oil Pipeline project was officially put into operation.

The Myanmar-China Gas Pipeline starts at Ramree Island on the western coast of Myanmar and ends at Ruili in China’s Yunnan Province, running in parallel with the Myanmar-China Crude Oil Pipeline. In July 2013, the Myanmar-China Gas Pipeline became operational and started to deliver natural gas to Myanmar’s market through its off-take stations.
