The energy sector has witnessed mixed news during the current fiscal so far. Whilecrude prices firmed up in the global market, the governments freeze on prices of petro-products affected margins of oil companies in 1QFY05.However, the government took a series of steps starting mid-June including excise dutyreduction and price increases. This was followed by another series of duty cuts (thistime excise as well as custom duties).Given this backdrop, we feel that there is a compelling reason for a SWOT analysis onthe oil sector at the current juncture.Historically, demand for petroleum products has traced the economic growth of thecountry. With GDP expected to grow at near 7% in the long-term, the energy sectorwould benefit from the same, going forward.This profile is the essential source for industry data and information relating to theExploration and Production industry in Myanmar.

To capitalize on these windows of opportunity,companies must ask some critical questions:• How do we adapt to new policy frameworks that are developing as a result ofrestructuring, deregulation, and corporate consolidation?
• In light of increasing economic pressure on all facets of the energy industry, how canwe improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and protect revenues and margins?• Should we explore growth strategies? Should we invest in areas such as large capitalprojects, new infrastructure needs, or new technologies to secure future energy supplyin a carbon-constrained world?BCG has developed a set of approaches and tools to help clients navigate theincreasing uncertainties and complexities of the industry.

Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines announces global market analysis, competitivelandscape and major projects to 2016(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fzs7ql/planned_oil_and_ga)Research and Markets has announced the addition of Global Datas new report"Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines - Global Market Analysis, Competitive Landscape andMajor Projects to 2016" to their offering.“Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines - Global Market Analysis, Competitive Landscape andMajor Projects to 2016”Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines - Global Market Analysis, Competitive Landscape andMajor Projects to 2016, is the latest report from Global Data, the industry analysisspecialist that analyzes the global planned oil and gas pipelines market. The reportprovides information about the global planned pipelines market until 2016. The reportgives information on planned pipeline lengths by the top five countries and the top fivecompanies in each region. It also covers key planned pipeline projects in each region.The report also provides key trends and issues in the pipeline industry. The report isbuilt using the data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary andsecondary research and in-house analysis by a team of industry experts.As part of its bid to diversify its gas exports and decrease reliance on traditional transitcountries, Russia will construct more pipeline than any other country in the world overthe next few years, says the latest report by natural resources experts The authors.The new report states that the countrys vast pipeline additions will largely focus onfinding new markets for its gas exports, while simultaneously bypassing traditionaltransit countries such as Ukraine, Belarus and Georgia.During the period 2012-2016, the Eastern European nation will build a massive14,053km of pipeline, accounting for 15% of the pipeline length to be constructedglobally during this time, and a 63% share of the European total.The region with the greatest pipeline additions, however, is the Asia-Pacific, thanks tohuge projects expected in India and Myanmar, among other countries. India will beresponsible for 10,965km of additions by the end of 2016, which equates toapproximately a quarter of the continents pipeline construction.Gas consumption in India is on the rise while production is declining. In response, thecountry is planning to boost imports and needs to develop its pipeline infrastructure tocope.
Pipeline construction in Myanmar is in no small part due to Chinas need to improve itsoil and gas import routes. Two of the biggest planned projects in the region are theMyanmar-China oil pipeline and the Myanmar-China gas pipeline.The Myanmar-China gas pipeline has a transportation capacity of 423.60billion cubicfeet (bcf) and is currently under construction, as is the Myanmar-China oil pipeline,which has a transportation capacity of 158.4 million barrels (MMbbl).The Asia Pacific region will introduce a total of 39,597 kilometers of pipeline additionsduring the period 2012-2016, most of which will be employed to meet the growingdemand for natural gas across the continent.http://www.youroilandgasnews.com/planned+oil+and+gas+pipelines+announces+global+market+analysis,+competitive+landscape+and+major+projects+to+2016_81353.htmlMyanmar Oil and Gas Strategic Analysis and Outlook to 2025 - Supply, Demand,Infrastructure, Investment and Market Shares(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l5xq6l/myanmar_oil_and) has Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Myanmar Oil and GasStrategic Analysis and Outlook to 2025 - Supply, Demand, Infrastructure, Investmentand Market Shares" report to their offering."Myanmar Oil and Gas Strategic Analysis and Outlook to 2025" is a comprehensiveguide to provide analysis and forecasts of the Myanmar oil and gas market for theperiod 2000 to 2025.
