In June 2020, Offshore Energy reported that an LNG import facility was under construction in Rakhine. It will supply the Kyaukpyu natural gas-fired power plant (150 MW capacity), which is expected to come online by the end of 2020.

In March 2022, it was reported that the 150-MW power plant had come online. It is unclear whether the LNG terminal's construction is complete.[3]
