The Company is currently studying the feasibility of
developing hydropower projects on the Mekong River Basin in the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao
PDR) in accordance with the power purchase MOU between Thailand and the Lao PDR. The hydropower projects
under study are run-of-the-river type or water-flowing dam where large reservoirs are not built. It uses
the natural flow of water to generate electricity, making the amount of water inlet equal to the water
flowing out and therefore has no impact to the environment.
