Ambassador Thani congratulated Banpu’s new milestone in northern Pennsylvania

On 10 December 2019, Ambassador Thani Thongphakdi congratulated BKV Operating LLC for the grand opening of its headquarters in Tunkhannock in northern Pennsylvania. BKV Operating LLC is Banpu’s investment in the U.S. shale gas industry, with cumulative investment of almost 700 million U.S. dollars since 2016.

Thai conglomerates like Banpu continue to expand their businesses and investments in the United States, contributing to local economies and creating jobs wherever they go. The upward trajectory of Thai investment in the U.S. is expected to rise even further.
