  • Pridiyathorn warns NLA to scrap an extra provision from Energy Bill

    Former deputy prime minister Pridiyathorn Devakula has warned the National Legislative Assembly of a surreptitious move by a group of military officers to form a national oil corporation which will have dominating power in the management of national energy.

    Calling a press conference at the Thai Journalists Association on Monday, Pridiyathorn told the media that the military group had surreptitiously inserted a clause regarding the formation of a national oil corporation in the Petroleum Bill despite the fact the original version of the bill did not have anything about the oil corporation.

    He said that the original version of the bill did not have any mentioning about the oil corporation. The insertion of the clause, he added, was intended to place the controlling over energy affairs under one roof � that is the national oil corporation.

    Pridiyathorn recalled that when he served as deputy prime minister in the previous Prayut administration, a group of military officers in the NLA tried to convince General Prayut to establish the oil corporation.

    He warned that thus national oil corporation is tantamount to a new giant which will have monopolistic control of all aspects of energy and is vulnerable to political interference.

    Everything was done in a transparent manner and was openly debated in the first reading. Who would have imagined that, in the second reading, something was inserted (in the bill) that lacks justifiable basis, said the deputy prime minister as he pleaded with the NLA to ditch this additional provision from the bill.

              Each MOU on technical-academic cooperation between EGAT and EDL lasts 5 years. The first phase started in 2002, while the second and third phases started in 2007 and 2012 respectively. The fourth phase beginning in 2017 covers cooperation on hydropower plant and transmission system. The earlier cooperation could bring about the greater efficiency and stability of generation and supply systems in Laos, while Thailand gains the benefit from knowledge exchange, both on technical and management aspects.

The long-lasting cooperation can bring the tangible result, and in the future the cooperation on other aspects that are in the global trend including renewable energy, will be implemented. As the power demand grows, many development is needed such as price stability, smart grid system, and backup system. The long relationship on power business between EDL and EGAT is regarded very valuable and should be recorded in the history. That is why the book “Laos-Thai Friendship” was written and published in 2 languages, to gather and keep all memories regarding the relationship and cooperation on power business between the two countries.

              Mr. Thaworn Ngamganokwan, EGAT Deputy Governor – Fuel said that Hongsa-Lignite Project is another cooperation on fuel between Thailand and Laos. The cooperation needs to be expanded to cover renewable energy and others for the development and strength of the two countries.
