Shell has signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with Italian-Thai Development Public Company Limited (ITD) and LNG Plus International Company Limited (LNGP) to cooperate for the development of a proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal in the Dawei Special Economic Zone (DSEZ) in Myanmar.

Roger Bounds, Vice President Global LNG at Shell said: “We are very pleased with this agreement. We believe that this opportunity will enable Shell, together with its part- ners, to bring its global expertise in LNG to Myanmar to help meet the country’s energy aspirations.”
