Clean Energy, Clear Benefits in Thailand

In recent years, USTDA has helped Thailand's state-owned oil and gas company, PTT, identify the optimum design and specifications for the country's first liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal at Map Ta Phut. This terminal is needed to meet Thailand's growing requirements for clean gas fuels and to avoid additional coal-based power generation. As a result of a USTDA-funded feasibility study conducted by Pace Global Energy, full project implementation is now underway on this $1 billion project. To date, at least 22 U.S. companies from 13 states have entered into contracts to provide services and technologies critical to the success of the terminal.
