Myanmar is known for natural gas due to their role as an exporter. Myanmar has a very small amount of total proved natural gas reserves relatively at only 283.2 bcm as of 2014. Additionally, Myanmar’s level of natural gas production is not drastically large either. In 2014, Myanmar only produced 16.8 bcm of natural gas.

Although Myanmar has a relatively low amount of proved natural gas reserves and production overall, they are still able to play a key role as an exporter of natural gas. Myanmar is the largest pipeline natural gas exporter in the Asia Pacific region. Myanmar exported 12.7 bcm of pipeline natural gas in 2014. This total amount of pipeline natural gas was imported by Thailand and China at 9.7 bcm and 3 bcm respectively.
