    NOTES:
     - With a total of $13.6 billion from 64 projects, the oil
and gas sector has attracted the largest share of total foreign
investment in Myanmar
     - Myanmar exported $3.7 billion worth of gas mainly to
neighbouring Thailand in the 2012-2013 (April/March) fiscal
year, up from $3.5 billion in 2011-2012 and $2.4 billion in
2008-2009.
     - Proceeds from the sale of gas are expected to climb later
this fiscal year following the start of operations of a pipeline
from western Rakhine state on the Bay of Bengal to China.
