Thailand Completes Biggest Oil Platform Construction

Southeast Asia's biggest offshore oil platform

Southeast Asia's biggest offshore oil platform, weighing in at 16,800 tonnes, is near completion near Indonesia's island of Batam.

Destined for the Arthit gas fields in the Gulf of Thailand, the US$500 million platform will help Thailand to escalate drilling and secure energy supplies.

Natural gas generates nearly all of the electricity in Thailand, which long ago shed its rural roots and is galloping toward greater urbanization and a broader industrial base.
