Vietnam Oil and Gas Industry

Vietnam Basins

As at end of 2009, Vietnam had proven oil reserves of 4.5 billion barrels or 0.3% of the world’s oil reserves. Production was 345 thousand barrels daily. Gas reserves amounted to 24.2 trillion cubic feet (0.68 trillion cubic metres) and production was 30.9 billion cubic metres as the end of 2009. The country is a major buyer of imported technology, services and equipment related to the oil and gas industry


The oil and gas industry in Vietnam is under the control and management of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT). PetroVietnam Oil & Gas Group, the national oil and gas group reports directly to the Prime Minister and monopolises the upstream, mid-stream and virtually all key downstream areas of the industry. Its vision is to be the “Leading Petroleum Group in the region – The Vietnamese pride”
Geological surveys have identified the basins of Song Hong, Phu Khanh, Nam Con Son, Cuu Long, Ma Lay-Tho Chu, and Tu Chinh-Vung May as having great potential for oil and gas reserves. Estimates run from 0.9 to 1.2 billion m3 of oil and from 2100 to 2800 billion m3 of gas. In fact, proven reserves have been verified amounting to 550 million tons of oil and 610 billion m3 of gas.

  3. Excellent and professional investigative services.
    I hired him (CYBERHACKPROS@GMAIL.COM) for a very
    private and difficult matter of hacking my spouse
    phone, and he far exceeded my expectations. He
    helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text
    messages, call logs etc) I needed faster and
    cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we
    spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in
    which he gave me all my options that he could
    think of to resolve my case, and he even
    recommended I try other options before hiring him,
    which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire
    him and I*** glad I did. He is a fantastic
    investigator and a great person and if you have a
    dishonest partner don’t hesitate to send him a
    mail Contact:CYBERHACKPROS@GMAIL.COM or +1 916 378
