Vietnam to Export Crude Oil to Thailand

Nhan dan July 4, 1999 - Vietnam has planned to export crude oil for Thailand's oil refineries and import refined products.

This is one of the significant schemes discussed at the sixth meeting of the Vietnam-Thailand Joint Commission for Economic Co-operation recently held in Hanoi.

The Thai Foreign Minister Surin Pitsuwan reconfirmed the great potential in oil co-operation between the two countries, at a press conference.

At present, a project on bottling and distributing liquified gas containers (LPG) is underway, opening up many opportunities for Vietnam and Thailand concerning co-operation in the field of oil processing.
