Petrovietnam Gas JSC

Company Background

PetroVietnam Gas is one of Vietnam's largest state-run companies. A member of Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group, PetroVietnam Gas is the largest natural gas company in the country. PetroVietnam Gas runs integrated operations, from drilling for gas through to marketing. It controls nearly 70% of the domestic market for liquefied petroleum gas and has a market capitalization of about $9 billion, making it one of the largest publicly traded Vietnamese companies.

PetroVietnam Gas was listed on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange in 2012. It is 97% owned by the Vietnamese government with the remainder held mostly by foreign investors. Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has plans to sell off a 20% interest in the company.

Because of its high domestic market share, PetroVietnam Gas boasts formidable price bargaining power. Its net profit margin is more than 10%. In 2013, the company was compelled to slash prices amid public criticism that it was making too much money.

The company is actively pursuing a policy of collaborating with foreign companies. In June 2014, it signed a liquefied natural gas trading contract with Royal Dutch Shell. In 2012, it teamed up with Tokyo Gas.

President and CEO Do Khang Ninh, 54, is an expert on oil transport and storage and earned a masters degree in Russia.
