Offshore oil and gas blocks in Myanmar 

On 7 January 2013, Myanmar’s Ministry of Energy (Ministry) launched its long awaited bidding round for offshore oil and gas blocks. Bids were invited for 30 offshore blocks, including 19 deep water blocks and 11 shallow offshore blocks.

The Ministry opted not to require foreign oil companies to partner with local companies in relation to deep water blocks, however a local partner is still required to exploit shallow offshore blocks
