Total Suspends Gas-linked Cash Payments To Myanmar Army | Source: International Business Times

Total suspended cash payments linked to gas pipeline partly owned by the Myanmar military due to “the unstable context” in the country.

French energy giant Total said that Myanmar’s army would no longer receive cash payments linked to a pipeline it operates through a joint venture with the military, following February’s military coup. It added that it “condemns the violence and human rights abuses occurring in Myanmar” and would comply with any potential sanctions against the junta from the EU or US.
