awarded at a ceremony hosted at the 6th World LNG Series: Asia Pacific Summit (LNG
Asia) in Singapore, on Wednesday, 24 September 2014.

Pacific LNG industry that has excelled themselves in the previous 12 months in
terms of commercial or technical innovation. The winner must be an active
member of the LNG industry in the Asia Pacific region.

Selection of the award candidates will be

contribution to the LNG business over the last year in one or more of the
following areas:

  • Innovation – through technical or commercial
    innovation, the organisation which has made a positive change to the industry
    in the Asia Pacific region

    organisation which has made an outstanding contribution to the industry and
    shown itself to be an industry leader in any specific part of the LNG chain in
    the Asia Pacific region
  • Knowledge – through development of people, the
    organisation that has expanded knowledge and learning within commercial or

In 2013, the honour was awarded to Singapore LNG (SLNG) and the Energy
Market Authority of Singapore (EMA). 

On receiving the award, Mr Neil McGregor, the former CEO of SLNG
stated: “It is indeed an unexpected honour for SLNG, and I believe for EMA as
well, to have been selected by our industry peers to receive this Award. The
development of the Singapore LNG Terminal, from conceptualization to commencing
commercial operations, has been an incredible journey and when we look back on
what has been achieved, it is not just a piece of infrastructure that we’ve
created but an unfolding story of the future of the LNG trade in Singapore and
this region”.

The
largest buyers of LNG in Asia are represented at the conference, along with
investors, distributors and suppliers. Details about the award, speakers, the program

Parami Calls for Revised National Environmental Policy,  HSE Standards in Myanmar

11 Feb 2014 – LONDON – Ken Tun, CEO of the Parami
Energy Group of Companies, an indigenous group of companies with a strong hold
in Myanmar’s Oil & Gas sector, outlined the need for a revised National
Environmental Policy in Myanmar. Tun believes that to protect local
infrastructure and to develop the industry in a sustainable manner, it is
timely for revisions to be made to the policy. 

Expressing his beliefs in an interview
conducted with The CWC Group’s Senior Producer and Project Manager Gurpreet
Hayre, Tun said that the government should also involve new operators in
setting standards for the policy and to set HSE requirements. He urged that
Myanmar’s government should draft a policy document with local content, in a
timely manner, so that supporting industries which are being developed locally
can grow in a sustainable manner.

Qualifying this statement, he said “Obviously,
there is the great interest here in Myanmar and I see Myanmar will play a very
big role in upstream sector regionally. We will have super packed exploration programs
in the years ahead. The operators I think will be able to come up with more HSE
requirements, and higher Environmental standards. It is now time for the
government to come up with a revised National Environmental Policy, addressing
the energy sector, with the help of these operators.”

Tun said that “Developing business for
local companies in the oil and gas sector still has its challenges. Steady progress is being made but it is a long and painful
process to acquire the jobs, execute and deliver up to the expectation of
owners and yet sustain profitability. Some of our projects did not make money
but we still delivered as promised as we are very hungry for experience and
reputation.”

He added “The Oil & Gas industry in
Myanmar is so small that any mistake you make can be visible to anyone in very
short period of time. Even big service companies cannot escape that.”

“Operators and the Myanmar Oil & Gas
Enterprise (MOGE) are very strict in terms of disqualifying the companies which
cannot meet deadlines or perform the job. If you cannot perform one job, you
are out [of consideration] for the next job. You can see some examples of this
in the EPC and Seismic business in Myanmar.”

Tun expressed that it is still a challenge
for local companies to move up the value chain by offering international
standards service. Supplier education programs are needed, such as HSE
certification, procurement procedures, and other forms of training to help
future operators to gain more confidence in local companies.

Parami take their Corporate Sustainability
Responsibilities very seriously. They get involved in the process of
development, to ensure that the projects they support help social development
in a sustainable manner. They help rural people with ways to sustain their
lives with the changes around them. Tun describes it as ““We give a man half a
fish to have his stomach half full and then teach them how to fish.” 

Some of Parami’s initiatives include
planting a total of 500,000 trees. To date they have planted 300,000 trees, of
which 100,000 trees were planted in 2013. In 2013, Parami also helped 1,000
children obtain a monastery school education in the Shan and Karen states and
they organized and financed 11 workshops to help local business communities to learn
about the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

Tun said that “Looking ahead, we might beat
our target of planting 500,000 trees by 2015. In 2014, we plan to support an additional
70 monastic schools and organize 7 AEC workshops.”

Parami is also cognizant of their
responsibilities to build a sustainable industry. Tun made mention that “There
is obviously shortage of local qualified people in our sector. Yet, more than
50% of our population are of young working age. 
Offering education, vocational and professional training is very
important for our industry to make it sustainable.”

Parami Energy is brainstorming ideas to
convert this readily available local resource to generate income nationally
from the energy sector. Ideas are welcome to address this opportunity.

Parami Energy is the official Local Partner
of the 2nd Myanmar Oil & Gas Upstream Summit, to be held in Yangon,
28-30 October 2014. The event is endorsed by the Ministry of Energy of the
Republic of the Union of Myanmar. To learn more about the event, visit cwcmyanmar.com.

2nd Myanmar Oil & Gas Upstream Summit to Occur 28-30 October 2014

6
February 2014 – LONDON – The CWC Group
has announced that the second Myanmar Oil & Gas Upstream Summit
will take place in Yangon on
28-30 October 2014. The event is supported by the Ministry of Energy of
the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, the Myanmar Oil & Gas Enterprise and
Parami Energy.

Myanmar is expected to play a significant
role in the upstream sector in the region. In 2013, the Ministry of Energy
offered 18 onshore and 30 offshore blocks for bid. The results are expected
this month.

In 2009, the market for Myanmar’s oil &
gas service industry was US$400m and has since grown to almost US$1bn in 2013.
The market is expected to easily grow into a multibillion dollar industry, with
new production sharing contracts (PSC’s) being signed.

The CWC Group’s Senior Producer and
Project Manager, Gurpreet Hayre said that “With continued support from the
Ministry of Energy and the Myanmar Oil & Gas Enterprise, The Myanmar
Upstream Oil & Gas Summit has proven itself as the best possible meeting
place at which discover and discuss new investment opportunities in Myanmar. Last
year we attracted attendance from representatives from 35 different companies, who
travelled to Myanmar from 19 countries. This year we expect to exceed those
numbers.”

Ken Tun, the CEO of Parami Energy Group,
the local partner organizing the summit, said “We find the summit to be very
high profile, informative and educational. From it, we are able to understand
how important it is for Myanmar to understand what we have and how to leverage
our national assets to develop the country.

Last year, we also learned how important it
is to develop local capabilities to make the industry sustainable. Myanmar may
be one of the last countries to develop its oil and gas industry, but we have
plenty examples to learn from. Countries like Norway to Nigeria. This time we
expect to learn more.”
