PTT Exploration & Production Plc

Company Background

PTT Exploration and Production is the flagship oil and gas exploration and production arm of Thailand's state-owned resources giant PTT. It produces about a quarter of Thailand's petroleum. The company has the second-largest market capitalization on the Thai stock exchange, after PTT, which holds approximately 65% of its shares.

Assets in Thailand account for about half of those owned by PTTEP's total in terms of value. It operates more than 40 projects in places such as Thailand, Australia and Africa.

Gas reserves in Thailand are projected to dry up in the near future. The company is therefore stepping up investments abroad. Myanmar, where TPPEP has three offshore projects in production, is one of its prime focuses. The company in 2012 also acquired Britain's Cove Energy, which owns interests in Mozambique.

Business Summary

PTT Exploration & Production Plc engages in the exploration and production of petroleum, foreign gas pipeline transportation, and investment in energy business. The firm's projects include Myanmar M3 Project, Bongkot Project, Contract 4 Project, and Mariana Oil Sands Project. It operates through the following segments: Exploration and Productions; Pipeline Transportation; and Head Office and Others. The company was founded on June 20, 1985 and is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand.
