The reduction in gas supply from Myanmar would cause a problem of low pressure in electricity supply system in some areas of Bangkok and nearby provinces, but that would not affect people, Thana Puttarangsri, deputy governor of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) said on Tuesday. 

Mr Thana met on Tuesday with senior executives of the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) and the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) to discuss measures to deal with the scheduled disruption of natural gas supply from Myanmar from April 5 to 14.

He said the Egat, PEA and MEA have planned to reserve more electricity by buying it from neighbouring countries and small power production plants (SPP), which had agreed to produce additional electricity for the country’s power system during the Myanmar shortage.
