Country Analysis Brief Overview
- Thailand is a net importer of oil and natural gas, although the country is a growing producer of natural gas.
- Thailand is the second largest net oil importer in Southeast Asia behind Singapore.
- Several new projects will increase natural gas production in Thailand, but the country is still considering various natural gas import schemes to meet growing domestic demand.
- Thailand's steadily growing electricity generation is highly dependent on natural gas, so the government is seeking ways to diversify fuel sources to include more renewable energy and potentially nuclear capacity in the long-term.
