Cambodia Petroleum Master Plan 2022-2040
Cambodia saw fast-growing demand for petroleum, especially oil, which had the highest share of total primary energy supply, in 2018 (42%). As a result, the oil supply rose at an average of 6% per year from 2010–2018. From 2017 to 2018 growth in demand for petroleum was nearly 10%, indicative of a rapid increase in oil transport demand (gasoline and diesel oil). Currently, all petroleum products are imported, and most are shipped by tankers from Thailand, Singapore, and Viet Nam. However, LPG can be imported by tanker-trucks from Thailand and Viet Nam, so the import route is different from gasoline and diesel oil. As petroleum demand is expected to grow to meet end-use demand, the transportation routes, receiving terminals, and distribution terminals of petroleum products must be adequately studied and assessed to ensure efficient logistics costs in Cambodia’s petroleum supply chain. The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) of Cambodia realises the need for a properly designed Petroleum Master Plan for the country to understand the entire petroleum supply chain in terms of logistics, storage, and distribution.
