PTT will transport NGV gas to the South to prevent shortages when the gas field in the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Development Area is shut for maintenance from June 13 to July 10, a company executive said yesterday.
Punnachai Footrakul, vice president of the NGV Marketing Department at PTT, told a press conference in Surat Thani’s Muang district that during the 28-day period, PTT expected 110 tonnes of leftover gas in the pipes would still be sent to the region for up to 18 days. For the remaining 10 days, PTT would transport 50 tonnes of NGV gas per day from Bangkok to the South.
The 46 tanker trucks would run on three routes: from Bangkok to Cha-am, from Cha-am to Nakhon Si Thammarat, and from Nakhon Si Thammarat to Songkhla and the three southern border provinces, he added.
