Myanmar Downstream Review 2019: Comprehensive Analysis of the Refining and Fuel Market -

DUBLIN--()--The "Myanmar Downstream Review 2019" report has been added to's offering.

The Myanmar Downstream Review 2019 is the most comprehensive report available on the country's refining and fuel market, which has recently seen greater M&A activity.

Fully up-to-date as of July 2019, the report comprises 100+ pages of analysis, data, company profiles, project profiles, charts, maps, and other features. The content was researched in Yangon over the first half of 2019, building on information in Myanmar Energy Monitor service plus a wealth of new original research through interviews, site visits, and data collection. The review spans a range of key topics, including fuel storage, import, and retail, refining facilities and capacity, a region-by-region breakdown of fuel outlets, profiles of operators, an appendix of importers and more.

With a projected 7% average annual growth rate in fuel consumption, Myanmar's retail fuel market and broader downstream energy sector should provide foreign investors with an array of opportunities as the country continues to face sizable deficits between demand and domestic fuel production, midstream infrastructure, and retail fuel station stock.

As of July 2019, there are over 2,500 licenced retail fuel stations across Myanmar. Retail fuel station stock has increased by roughly 30% since January 2017, with demand driven by increased car ownership, an uptick in logistics demand and further market liberalisation. Mandalay Region continues to be the administrative division with the most retail fuel stations, at around 25% of the nationwide total.

In March 2019, foreign investors began to move into the fuel market in earnest, with Singapore Petroleum Company (SPC), a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), acquiring a 35% stake in local conglomerate Shwe Taung's retail fuel business. Since then, Thailand's PTT and South Korean's SK Energy finalised similar deals with the retail fuel business units of KBZ Group and Best Oil Company, respectively. A handful of other foreign players have been eyeing the market, but are wary due to concerns over land acquisition, partnership structures and constraints faced in due diligence processes.

To accommodate a continuing surge in demand, nine large-scale fuel import and storage terminals are either under construction or proposed for Yangon Region alone, while additional fuel import and storage facilities are planned for other divisions. A number of proposed special economic zone projects and deep-sea ports along Myanmar's coastline are also slated to comprise significant fuel import and storage facilities

Myanmar's nascent refining industry will require significant local and foreign investment to meet national demand. Multiple Japanese, Chinese and South Korean investors have expressed interest in both greenfield and brownfield opportunities, though no project to date has received the green-light from Myanmar authorities.
