In April 2017 the governments of Vietnam and Laos agreed to built a pipeline that would connect the Hon La Oil Stockpile in Hon La Harbour in Vietnam’s Quang Binh province to Laos’s Khammuan province.[1] The Oil Stockpile would be built by 2020 and the pipeline would be built by 2024.[2] As of September 2020 there has been no further news about the project in more than two years and it appears to be shelved.
