The oil and gas industry is moving towards deepwater exploration as cost optimisation, through a period of low priced oil, has ensured deepwater explorations and production become more viable. Currently, offshore production facilities in Myanmar exists in both shallow and medium water depths; however, the potential of frontier deepwater exploration are available within the Myanmar offshore blocks. Future deepwater activities will create opportunities in Myanmar especially in end-to-end exploration and production (E&P), and throughout its value and supply chain. In the long run, the emphasise of the industry will include a digitally and technologically enhanced approach to deepwater E&P; while taking an in-depth, methodological and systems-based field development; subsea wellhead completion, asset integrity and more. At the same time, the support system to deepwater E&P must also be developed to ensure that the industry meet regulatory, logistical, environmental, and infrastructure challenges in the Myanmar operations.
