Myanmar will decide on exporting gas to India by May, after it gets the reserves in its offshore areas certified, said U Soe Myint Director General Energy Planning Division, Ministry of Energy Government of Myanmar.

"The current estimate of gas reserves would not support export of gas to India either through a pipeline or in the form of LNG," he told reporters.

Independent certifiers have certified 4.8 trillion cubic feet gas reserves in offshore block A-1 while in the adjacent block A-3 the reserves would be established after the current appraisal drilling is completed in May.
