|Title:|| ||Assessment of the Greater Mekong Subregion Energy Development
|Date of publication:|| ||2013|
|Description/subject:|| ||Executive Summary: "The new Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Strategic Framework, 2012–2022 marks a major shift
in the GMS Program, reflecting changes in the regional environment and the achievements of
the program to date. Adopted at the Fourth GMS Summit held at Myanmar in December 2011,
the new framework calls for increased focus from conventional infrastructure to multi-sector
investments, and greater emphasis on infrastructure “software” to build on physical connectivity
and increased coordination across sectors. The GMS countries requested Asian Development Bank
(ADB) assistance in preparing a multi-sector regional investment framework (RIF) to foster economic
corridor development and in proposing an investment program aligned to the new framework. The
substantive outcome of the regional planning exercise was presented at the 18th GMS Ministerial
Conference in Nanning, People’s Republic of China in December 2012. This GMS energy report was
made available at that meeting as a background document.
As an input to the development of the RIF, this report includes analyses of national plans at sector
levels, and regional investment priorities that were preliminarily identified in the energy sector.
The primary objective is to update information on regional energy resources and to analyze the
prospects for regional energy sector development, taking into account the progress of projects
under the GMS Vientiane Plan of Action, 2008–2012, and the various national energy projects,
especially those with important regional implications. The ultimate goal is to determine how
regional cooperation can contribute to national objectives, recognizing that regional cooperation
is not an end in itself, but a means to further national goals..."|

|Title:|| ||DEADLY ENERGY (Mya Yadana Report)
|Date of publication:|| ||September 1993|
|Description/subject:|| ||This report by Green November 32 in 1993 was the first ever NGO perspective report written on the Yadana gas pipeline and on the border dams as they were first discussed by Thai and Burmese governments around that time. It was actually one of the first detailed reports on any of the post 1988 environmental issues by any Burmese- or border- based organisation, and is of particular interest in the light of the current opposition to the Irrawaddy dam projects...
"Officials of the Thai government and the SLORC military regime have for some years now been planning a series of huge energy joint ventures to be undertaken in some of the most fought over territory in Burma. The energy projects, if they are endorsed by the Thai Government - and implemented with the participation of Japanese and Western corporations - will have extremely serious, possibly even terminal repercussions for the Burmese pro-democracy movement which is based in these same areas of the Burma -Thai border. Indeed, this seems to be what a number of the proponents of the development projects intend to achieve, particularly the generals in Rangoon. The SLORC, as well as politicians, military men and businessmen in Thailand and abroad would garner great benefit from the destruction of the Burmese opposition groups along the border, and the opening of the way to even more unrestrained natural resource exploitation than is currently taking place.
There are ten planned energy development joint ventures, comprising two offshore natural gasfield developments and eight hydro-electric dams. These are: •The Martaban Gasfield developments led by Total CFP of France •The Yetagun Gasfield exploratory program led by Texaco of the US •The Upper Salween Dam, •The Lower Salween Dam •The Nam Kok Project •The Nam Moei 3 Project •The Nam Moei 2 Project •The Klong Kra Project •The Nam Moei 1 Project, and •The Nam Mae Sai Project...
The energy projects will lead to environmental and social havoc on a scale comparable to the largest development projects in the world. Indeed, the Upper Salween Dam will be among the largest in the world. Altogether the projects will directly result in the flooding and deforesting of thousands of square kilometers of the forests bordering Burma and Thailand. The projects will displace many thousands of indigenous peoples, some of them already refugees from the forty-five years of bloody civil war in Burma. Many have already been affected by military operations of the SLORC and Thai armies, operations which can easily be seen in the context of clearing the way for the development of the 820-1,000 kilometre gas pipeline or the construction of the eight dams...
The energy projects will put billions of dollars into the control of an ultra-nationalist military regime that is one of the world's worst human rights violators and that is rapidly building up a large and extraordinarily aggressive army which poses a significant threat to the stability of the region. The massive input of funds from the Western and Japanese multinational oil and energy development companies, combined with the cheap sale and presents of Chinese weaponry, and the profits from the heroin traffic that the SLORC is alleged to control, has funded this huge expansion of the SLORC armed forces...
The energy joint ventures will, if signed, mark the second and higher level of engagement in the much criticised ASEAN policy of "constructive engagement" towards the SLORC regime, which through the activities of the logging, oil and fishing companies have already caused untold damage to Burma's environment. The multinational corporations, the Keidanrens
and the Thai state oil and electricity institutes PTT and EGAT are therefore amongst the most powerful influences supporting the SLORC in its brutal and undemocratic suppression of the peoples of Burma."|

|Title:|| ||Burma - Issues and options in the energy sector
|Date of publication:|| ||30 June 1985|
|Description/subject:|| ||Sector Report.
Burma' s energy resources are large and varied. While the Government has done a commendable job of developing these
resources largely on its own, their development has nevertheless been comparatively slow. While this may have constrained
economic growth to date, it also provides a ready basis for an acceleration in future economic growth and increased exports.
This report analyzes the technical, financial and institutional requirements for realizing that potential through the turn of the
century in the context of two scenarios - a Planned Growth scenario which reflects the official growth targets, and an Economic
Growth scenario under which public finance and balance of payments constraints result in somewhat slower economic growth.
Under either scenario a major investment program and infusion of current technology will be needed. The report recommends
considerable technical assistance and studies to help effect this transfer of technology. To help finance these requirements, it
will be necessary to improve the financial footing of the public corporations in the sector; this would entail price increases for
many energy products. There is also a need to strengthen energy planning and inter-ministerial coordination on energy matters.
