Report summary

Vietnam is expected to turn increasingly to imported fuel sources such as coal to meet its energy needs. However, from a fuel security and diversification standpoint, Vietnam needs to develop its own gas reserves, such as PetroVietnam's Block B. Vietnam can also expect to benefit in terms of increased government earning. The development of Block B can yield an estimated US$3 billion in tax revenue.
