Japanese utility Tokyo Gas, through its unit Tokyo Gas Asia, has set up the first fully private natural gas distribution business in Thailand.

The distribution company named Gulf WHA MT Natural Gas Distribution Company (GWHAMT) has been established through a joint investment by the Gas Energy Development Company, Thai privately held WHA Utilities and Power and MITG (Thailand), a joint venture between Tokyo Gas Asia and Mitsui & Co.

Tokyo Gas said the company has been established in WHA Eastern Seaboard Industrial estate, located in the Easter Economic Corridor, earmarked by the Thai government for investment promotion purposes.
