Kyaukphyu, Myanmar (Burma)

Rakhinese youths on a motorbike drive past the compound of the South Korean-owned Posco Onshore Gas Terminal (OGT). The terminal is part of the Shwe Natural Gas project which is a USD three billion gas pipeline and onshore tanker terminal project built by Daewoo International, China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) and Myanmar's state-owned Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE). The fishing town of Kyaukpyu, racked by violence between ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims in 2012, is at the heart of China's drive for new resources and trade routes. In particular, new oil and gas pipelines from Kyaukpyu connect China's southwestern province of Yunnan directly with the Indian Ocean, bypassing the narrow Malacca Strait, where a strong U.S. naval presence has long worried Chinese policymakers.
