    PTT Petrol has been the leading petrol company in Thailand for a long time & indeed they have set the standard for everyone else to follow - smart clean modern petrol stations with 7-11 mini marts, clean toilets, Amazon coffee shops, other restaurants & food centres. Plus air hoses + gauges to check your tyres. A fantastic service.
    It is with great delight that I now seem them moving into Laos & reckon it maybe a good idea to start listing towns & Places with PTT service stations.

    I know of 3 so far & there are probably more

    1. Luang Prabang on R13N, north of town just past the airport. GPS: N19 54.448 E102 10.032

    2. Vientiane
    There is one maybe 10 kms out on R13N on the way to Vang Vieng. On the inbound right hand lane, heading towards Vientiane.

    3. Pakxe Champasak
    On R16A. Heading to Pakxong & the Bolaven plateau.
    1.5 kms east of R13S turn off to Don Khong
    GPS: N15 08.224 E105 54.798

    Does anyone have anymore?

    Get their "Blue Card" and use it each time you fill up in Thailand, gives a receipt with date,total liters, price per liter. Easy to keep track of fuel economy, I use a pen to jot the odo kms on each receipt and then work it out later or add to an app. Bonus , you receive points to use at Amazon for coffees etc.

    PTT is on the move in Laos - great news!

    Café Amazon PTT Franchise to Expand Further

    (KPL) The PTT of Thailand has a plan to expand its master franchise of Café Amazonto 13 petrol stations in the Lao PDR.

    The signing ceremony of master franchiseof Café Amazon of PTT Laos was held at the Crown Plaza hotel Vientiane Capital on May 30.

    The master franchise expansion was signed between Senior Executive Vice President of PTT Public Company Limited Auttapol Rerkpiboon and Managing Director of PTT Lao Company Limited Somchart Sermvongtrakul.

    Witnesses at the event were Chief Operating Officer, Downstream Petroleum Business Group, PTT Public Company Limited SarunRungkasiri, Vice Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Boua-Ngem Xaphouvongand Director General Domestic Trade Department, Minister of Industry and Commerce Bounlien Keosipha.

    Mr Rungkasiri stated that PTT aims to become one of thetop brands in the Indo-China region by introducing Café Amazon to new markets in Southeast Asian along with PTT petroleum products.

    After the success of granting the first rights of a master franchise of Café Amazon in Cambodia to PTTCL, PTT continued to pursue the same path by granting rights to PTT Laos and other countries such as Myanmar, Japan and Oman.

    "Granting rights of a master franchise of Café Amazon to PTT Lao not only creates an opportunity to expand our businesses remarkably in Southeast Asia but also provides jobs for Lao peopleand generates economic growth for our neighbour with products and services of international standard and reasonable price.

    Presently, there are 25 Café Amazon outlets in Lao PDR operated by PTT Lao with a target set at 38 branches by the end of 2017 and75 branches by 2021.

    PTT continues to drive its business towards building the pride and treasure of Thailand. Promoting recognition of Thai brands like Café Amazon to coffee consumers in ASEAN, is one the initiatives for PTT to become a Global brand," said Mr. Sarun.

    Another update April 2018


    PTT plans massive expansion in Laos to meet growing demand

    PTT Plc, the state-owned fuel supplier in Thailand, has plans for massive business expansion in Laos six years after entering the market of 7 million consumers.


    In a recent interview with Vientiane Times, the managing director of the company’s Lao subsidiary, Songpon Thepnumsommanus, said the firm has plans to expand the number of its petrol stations from 45 units to 100 units by 2022.

    The company’s business expansion plan is a response to growing fuel consumption and business opportunities to provide quality fuel and best services in Laos, he said.

    “Our business emphasis is quality of fuel and best service,” Songpon of PTT (Lao) Co Ltd said.

    According to him, the expansion of petrol stations will be based on direct investment by the Thai company and sale of its business franchise to local business partners who trust in the Thai business model.

    The cost of a PPT petrol station franchise, excluding land, ranges between Bt15 million and Bt35 million, he said, adding the investment costs for local investors depends on the category of petrol station.

    There are three types of PTT petrol stations – platinum, standard and complex. The platinum is the top petrol station model, which accommodates a number of facilities and services such as retail fuel distribution service, convenience store, coffee shop and bank unit. The following models have fewer features.

    Observers say PTT petrol stations in Laos are able to attract local consumers who demand top quality fuel and best services. The Thai brand has been popular in Laos and this has made it easier for the firm to expand its businesses in the country.

    In addition to the popularity of the brand, PTT has come up with business models that attract local consumers. The company not only wants to sell fuel but also services that make a petrol station a one-stop service where people can get many things, including dining and banking, according to local observers.

    Apart from the popularity of the brand in Laos, PPT has developed a clear strategic plan and direction for expanding its business in Laos and the region. The company has already made forays into Cambodia and other Asean nations.

    Songpon said he was pleased that PTT’s presence in Laos had created a new standard for the petrol station business in the country.
