PTT Public Company Limited is the biggest Thailand state-owned oil and gas company by revenue, and the biggest company in Thailand.
The group’s businesses range from exploration to downstream activities including petrochemical manufacturing, electricity generation, and petrol retailing.
It is the sole owner of local gas pipelines.
PTT is the biggest company in Thailand by revenue and its top energy producer. The group is involved in upstream oil and gas exploration (PTTEP TB), as well as downstream, in power generation, petrochemicals (PTTGC TB), refining (TOP TB), and gasoline retailing.
The main source of revenue, at 50% of total sales, is oil and trading. This includes retail sales of gasoline at service stations, which is planned to be spun out of the division and listed as PTTOR in 2019. The rest of the division does not contribute to profits.
The second-largest division is petrochemical and refining, and contributes 31% of revenue and profits. The exploration and production division, 5% of sales, is 16% of after-tax profits.
The third-largest division, gas, while less than 1/5 of revenue, produces half of the company’s net profit, thanks to a local monopoly via government contracts on gas piping for transmission. These contracts are expected to be renewed given the substantial investment in capacity.
