If there was a civil war in Burma, all these would be burnt.

Foreign investment in Burma’s oil and natural gas sector is especially significant. Sales of natural gas account for the single largest source of revenue to the military government. Gas exports accounted for fully half of the country’s exports in 2006. Burma’s gas business brought in revenue of US$2.16 billion in 2006 from sales to its main buyer, Thailand. These funds flow directly to the government and provide the junta with a major source of financing that is completely independent of its citizens.

Current investors in Burma’s oil and gas industry include companies from Australia, the British Virgin Islands, China, France, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Russia, and the United States.

Details of the Deals

At present the SPDC receives the bulk of its gas money from the onshore “Yadana” and “Yetagun” gas fields. The Yadana consortium is led by Total of France and includes UNOCAL (now Chevron) of the United States and Thailand’s state-controlled PTT Exploration and Production Co Ltd (PTTEP). The Yetagun consortium, led by Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas, includes Japan’s Nippon Oil as well as PTTEP. PTTEP, a subsidiary of the largely state-owned PTT Public Co Ltd (PTT) of Thailand, buys the gas for export to Thailand.

Major offshore natural gas projects are under development. A consortium of South Korean and Indian firms, in partnership with the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise, has made a large gas find off the coast of Arakan State in western Burma. Known as the “Shwe” gas project, it is expected to produce massive revenues once it is in production. Estimates of the gas yield of the Shwe deposits range between US$37 to US$52 billion, and could lead to a total gain in revenues to the junta or future Burmese governments of US$12 to US$17 billion over 20 years.

The Shwe gas consortium is composed of the South Korean company Daewoo International, state-owned companies from India and South Korea, and the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise. Some of the foreign partners also have separate deals with the Burmese government entity for other concessions.

On September 24, for example, India’s state-controlled Oil and Natural Gas Co (ONGC), whose subsidiary ONGC Videsh is a partner in the Shwe consortium, signed a deal with Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise to explore for gas in three more offshore blocks. Under the deal, Oil and Natural Gas Co pledged to invest US$150 million through ONGC Videsh.

India’s Office of the President holds nearly 75 percent of the shares in Oil and Natural Gas Co. India’s minister for oil, Murli Deora, traveled to the Burmese capital last week to sign the agreement as thousands of protesters in Burma took to the streets to call for political freedom, an end to the SPDC’s abuses, and economic improvements.

India, like China and Russia – which are also major investors in Burma’s natural gas sector – has provided political and military support to the SPDC. India and China are in competition to buy the Shwe gas. In August, a top Burmese energy official publicly confirmed that China was strongly favored to buy the gas, but indicated that a sales agreement was not yet final.

Chinese firms are also actively seeking to build oil and gas pipelines in Burma. One proposed pipeline would transport gas from the offshore Shwe project to China. A second pipeline would carry Middle Eastern oil across Burma into China, bypassing the busy shipping lanes of the Straits of Malacca. These proposals to build overland pipelines across Burma have raised serious human rights concerns, in light of past experience. Major controversies arose in the 1990s over construction of pipelines and associated infrastructure to transport Yadana-Yetagun gas. UNOCAL and Total were sued in the US and France, respectively, by Burmese villagers who accused them of complicity in atrocities by the Burmese army during operations to remove villagers from areas slated for development and to facilitate pipeline construction. The companies ultimately settled the lawsuits.

Two Chinese companies that have shown strong interest in the proposed new Burma-China pipeline projects are Sinopec and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC). Both are Chinese state-owned oil companies and are involved in gas exploration in Burma as well. They also are official “partners” (major sponsors) of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and are under increased scrutiny for the human-rights impact of their investments in Sudan and Burma.

India and China have been reluctant to criticize the recent crackdown. Russia joined China in blocking UN Security Council action on Burma.

In addition to foreign investors (both state-owned and private), the companies doing business with Burma include banks that arrange financial transactions and companies that import products from Burma. For example, timber exports to China have been substantial. The SPDC also draws significant revenue from sales of gems, notably rubies and jade. These gems are polished in third countries and then find their way to retail stores in Europe and the US, where sanctions permit imports of Burmese-origin goods that are processed in third countries.

Dear Readers,
Here how Ancient city of Burma was destroyed by Chinese in history. Now they are plotting again with their false friendship? They want Burma and Burmese women again?
kind regards.

( Fall of Pagan 1287
Narathihapate had been just assassinated by his son Thihathu when Kublai decided to send his troops again in late 1286. The prince Esen-temur led his 7,000 men down the Irrawaddy. When he reached Pagan, the king had already fled to the hills nearby.@@@@ The Yuan troops stripped Pagan's monasteries of their gold and silver@@@@. Esen-temur divided Burma into the Yuan's political divisions and installed the puppet ruler of the Mongols. However, the Pagan Kingdom fell into anarchy.WIKI.)

Maybe China want to waste some millions of it own Chinese ( who they cannot feed anymore ) in a war with Burma in future. All Burmese will die , all of us. But. we will fight to the very last man, until Irrawaddy only flows blood. Nobody will get Burma without shedding their own blood.
Burma is only for the Burmese.

@@@@@@ Do Burmese come from China? @@@@@@

( Eighth century Chinese records identify 18 Pyu states throughout the Irrawadddy valley, and describe the Pyu as a humane and peaceful people to whom war was virtually unknown and who wore silk cotton instead of actually silk so that they would not have to kill silk worms. The Chinese records also report that the Pyu knew how to make astronomical calculations, and that many Pyu boys entered the monastic life at seven to the age of 20.[4]

It was a long-lasting civilization that lasted nearly a millennium to early 9th century until a new group of "swift horsemen" from the north, the Mranma, (Burmans) entered the upper Irrawaddy valley. In the early 9th century, the Pyu city states of Upper Burma came under constant attacks by the Nanzhao Kingdom in present-day Yunnan. ) wiki.

Some of the facts of history reflects that Burmese descended from China.
I just can't understand what those Chinese are doing to us now. While we are supplying everything they need- girls, geckos, eels,crabs, rice,snakes, shark fins, sting rays, jelly fish, peanuts, sesame,oil and gas. They are the things Uncle Sam and the EU are eying with green eyes as well.

So I must chant ... Long live China?

My deepest condolences to the victims of recent Flood, Earthquake and Storm in Turkey, Thailand and Burma. God, please cherish their souls.

What would happen if Irrawaddy dam bursted.

Millions of Burmese would perish in a moment.

Chinese government is doing facing by sending Buddha sacred tooth and cultural troupe to Burma. They should have been wisely dealt with this kind of serious matter earlier. Erecting a dam in a foreing land is not a matter of baking cake. Oh those Chinese. When will they be wise enough in diplomacy? Confucius has a loose face now. Even a rickshaw man knows erecting a very high dam in the mountain at the top of the plain land is not a thing to consider. LOL. Oh dear.. Greed, Greed, Greed.

kind regards.

P.S Face saving is a hard thing to do. Need to compensate so many things.

Those Chinese are always communists and never truly believe in Buddha and Buddhism. Now they are using so-called Buddha's tooth to save their face. It's proven that how ruthless of those Chinese . But, we won't never trust them again. Goodbye Mr. China. You're no longer Burma's true friend.

A FALSE FRIEND IS MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN AN OPEN ENEMY.

I just overhead they are going to cut electricity. Please cut. We are used to live happily in the darkness since I was born. ( Nobody ever lighted Burma in history, even the British. )

No big deal as long as we all are together and alive?

I'd be ashamed living in the bright lights when all my brothers are all alone in the dark and starved.

It'd be Just not human?

Mr. China,

We know you're going to kill us.

We live throughout the histories you live and we love our country and our children too.

So please pay a little respect to us if you still are a human.

kind regards.

P.S - Don't forget we teach you diplomacy and football. lol.

Oh, how can I be so forgetful. You once killed even your own mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters and drove them away, didn't you?

No wonder, now you want to eliminate us. Oh, Mr. China , why don't you ever learn.

Nature is always larger than you. You poor thing.
