 The first consignment of 30 metric tonnes (MT) of high speed diesel (HSD) was sent from India to Myanmar by land route. 

Numaligarh Refinery Ltd. (NRL), which has been supplying HSD to Bangladesh, sent the first diesel consignment through NH 37 across the Moreh custom check point on the Indian side and Tamu custom check point in Myanmar.
 
Supply of diesel consignment to Myanmar is another step in realising the vision of prime minister Narendra Modi to enhance hydrocarbon synergy with neighbouring countries as well as promoting India’s Act East policy.  
 
NRL has inked an agreement with Parami Energy Group of Companies for the supply of diesel.  NRL refinery, situated 420 km from the India-Myanmar border, is ideally suited to supply diesel to northern Myanmar where connectivity is a challenge, particularly during the rainy season.
NRL has already exported 1,700 MT of paraffin wax to Myanmar.  India supplied hand-made wax candles to the 2,500 year old Shwedagon Pagoda earlier this year.
 
During his recent visit to Myanmar, minister of petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan had discussed opportunities to collaborate in the oil and gas sector including setting up of LNG terminal, retail marketing, refurbishment of refineries, participation in upstream sector and capacity building. 
 
ONGC Videsh, GAIL India and Oil India have assets in the upstream sector as well as pipelines.
