Australia’s Woodside Petroleum is seeking to protect Myanmar’s environment while it develops the gas reserves in Block A6 off the coast of Rakhine, according to the Myanmar Times.

The company has promised to conserve the highly valuable marine ecosystems in the area and reduce the impact on marine life wherever possible.

The company is evaluating the commercial viability of drilling in blocks A6 and AD7 and is expected to make a decision this year.
