Country Analysis: Thailand
Thailand is a net importer of oil and natural gas and relies on fossil fuels to meet a majority of its primary energy consumption. The country’s natural gas production has expanded in the past two decades to meet increasing demand from the power sector and other industries. In response to the growing demand, the government seeks to promote alternative energy sources to diversify its fuel mix as well as increase investment in upstream oil and gas developments.
