Positional Accuracy Among different data sources, only Global Witness include information on the area of oil and gas blocks. Hence the area of blocks that were not part of the Global Witness report were retrieved from polygons that were created in the Google Earth.
Logical Consistency The Information from Myanmar EITI report 2016-2017 are not consistent because the blocks (IOR-4 and RSF-2) are shown as open block and under operation. There is no information about those blocks in the following EITI report 2017-2018.
Completeness Not Completed. The EITI report 2017 indicates PSC-N and ODI team are to able to digitized the boundary of this block based on available dataset.
Process Step Most recent data from were taken from 5 reference documents 1) Myanmar EITI Report 2018 accessed via OneMap Myanmar, 2) Myanmar EITI Report 2017, 3) Myanmar EITI Report 2015, 4) Global Witness Report (The Shell Starts to Crack?) 2014, 5) Myanmar Oil and Gas Sector-Wide Impact Assessment 2015 and 6) Myanmar Companies Online. Most updated data was used if the data is found in more than one source. "Map showing recent block winners and responses to Global Witness survey" was uploaded onto Google Earth and the polygons were drawn around the blocks to get their geo locations, and to estimate the areas of the blocks.
