Country Overview (Energy & Utilities)

Major Energy & Utilities Producing Nations
 
According to the The International Energy Agency, in its World Energy Outlook report states that China is the leading producer of energy followed by US currently. But of late the US is overtaking Russia as the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas, a startling shift that is reshaping markets and eroding the clout of traditional energy-rich nations. US energy output has been surging in recent years, a comeback fueled by shale-rock formations of oil and natural gas that was unimaginable a decade ago. And it is astonishing how effective accelerating domestic LNG exports would be in reducing Europe’s dependence on Russian gas, and how soon it could realistically happen as Europeans’ ability to quickly shift from Russia to US gas in a future crisis would be severely limited by infrastructure constraints even if the US expanded its LNG export infrastructure, so unless European companies build a large number of LNG terminals and pipelines and then idle them something that profit-seeking companies rarely do on purpose—there will be limited capacity to absorb a sudden influx of US LNG in a crisis. The amount of crude from two of the hottest plays in the US, the Bakken oil field in North Dakota and the Eagle Ford shale formation in South Texas, continues to rise rapidly, while Russian output has increased modestly over the past three years. The Russian government predicts oil output will remain flat through 2016, while natural gas ticks up 3%. The shift has raised concerns in Moscow that U.S. crude supplies will crowd out Russia's oil exports.

Brazil Power Report Q1 2015

Brazil Power Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: Brazil's power sector continues to offer significant investment opportunities due to its
unmatched size, government's commitment to power capacity expansion and large prospective in
renewables and natural gas-fired thermal sectors. However, the country's potential is hindered by
its continued dependence on unreliable hydroelectricity, weak infrastructure and regulatory interjections.
In addition, Brazil's darkening macroeconomic trajectory has weighed heavily on our forecast for longterm

Myanmar Power Report Q1 2015

Myanmar Power Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: The Myanmar power sector is set to grow impressively over the coming decade, and will be one
of the fastest growing markets in the region. We also expect the country's energy mix to change over the
decade, and this change will create numerous opportunities across the sector.
We are forecasting electricity generation in Myanmar to grow by 16.1% in 2015, which is slightly lower
than our estimates of 17.5% growth in 2014. We believe that growth in 2015 will continue to be primarily

Brazil Renewables Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: We are maintaining our 2015 forecasts for non-hydropower renewable energy generation in
Brazil this quarter, but have revised up our long-term forecasts to account for the strong results of the
reserve auction in 2014. Wind energy will continue to be the main driver of growth in 2015. Biomass
capacity will also grow sizeably.

South Korea Renewables Report Q1 2015

South Korea Renewables Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: Our outlook for the South Korean renewable energy sector remains unchanged this quarter, but
several recent developments in the regulatory environment pose significant risks to our long-term forecasts.
We are maintaining our 2015 growth forecast for non-hydropower renewable energy in South Korea this
quarter as our assumptions for the sector remain relevant. Growth in 2015 will primarily be driven by wind
and biomass energy, and solar energy to a lesser extent. We have maintained our long-term forecasts for

Turkey Water Report Q1 2015

Turkey Water Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: This quarter we have expanded our forecast coverage to include extraction by source (including
spring, well, sea, river and reservoir) and mains, non mains and household water consumption. These
additions have resulted in a substantial alteration to our existing forecast figures.
We believe the drought which plagued the country for much of 2014, the reduction of the water resources,
and the rising demand for thermal electricity generation pose serious risks to the Turkish water sector.

Chile Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Chile Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: Given a lack of below-ground potential, Chile suffers from a severe deficit of hydrocarbon
supplies and a high dependence on imported energy feedstock. However, the country's
leadership recognises the unlikelihood of a trend reversal, implementing a new national energy strategy to
spur greater development of the sector where possible. The Bachelet administration has continued Chile's
traditions of a liberal economy, regulatory transparency, and encouragement of foreign investment. Chile's

Mozambique Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Mozambique Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: A key takeaway from recent exploration and appraisal work in Mozambique is growing
confidence that operators have proven sufficient amounts of gas to support large LNG export projects.
However, FID delays, politics, costs, infrastructure constraints and the ongoing regulatory overhaul are
challenges the country will face as it moves from exploration to production. While the timing of first LNG is
particularly difficult to pin-point, we expect Mozambique to make its presence felt in the global LNG market
by the end of the decade.

Thailand Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Thailand Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: Thailand is expected to remain driven by a strong oil and gas demand far outweighing the
domestic production over our forecast period to 2023. With declining oil and gas reserves, we expect longterm
oil and gas production trends to remain stagnant or negative, despite a slight increase in the mediumterm.
However, the 21st licensing round, scheduled for early 2015, poses an upside risk to our current
reserves and production forecast.
The main trends and developments we highlight in the Thai oil and gas sector are:

Nordics Power Report Q1 2015

Nordics Power Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: With our fundamental assumptions for the three Nordic markets covered in this report
unvaried, our forecasts for their power sectors remain largely unchanged this quarter. Overall, we maintain
our view that, while growth expectations in the region are improving, economic woes in the eurozone
remains a major risk factor for the consumption and generation outlook of the three Nordic countries, as
more regional instability could undermine their economic activity. In terms of sectoral developments, we

Azerbaijan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Azerbaijan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The outlook for Azerbaijan's upstream sector is broadly bullish, with a substantial increase in
the country's natural gas production offsetting a longer-term decline in oil output. We are more bearish on
the downstream, and do not believe that forecast global refined fuels demand-supply dynamics will support
the country's planned refinery upgrade and expansion projects.
Key trends we highlight for Azerbaijan's oil and gas sector:

Norway Power Report Q1 2015

Norway Power Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

Recent developments:
■ Statkraft, the country's largest power producer has allocated NOK12bn (USD1.81bn) to upgrade
Norwegian and Swedish hydropower plants from 2014 to 2018. Also, the country's fifth largest utility,
BKK Produksjon has started to upgrade its hydro production facilities. BKK aims to upgrade its Matre
plant to almost double the capacity of its existing plant by 2016, from 96MW to 180MW.
■ Norway plans to two build subsea power cables connecting Norway to the UK and Germany, both with

Czech Republic Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Czech Republic Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: While a moratorium on shale gas exploration, the Czech Republic will remain highly dependent
on imported oil and gas, mostly from Russia, as conventional hydrocarbons production potential is limited.
With demand trends remaining relatively weak, a small increase in refinery utilisation rates should see only
a modest rise in net refined products import needs throughout our forecast period.
The main trends and developments we highlight for the Czech Republic's oil and gas sector are:

Argentina Renewables Report Q1 2015

Argentina Renewables Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Despite an attractive regulatory framework and ambitious government plans for expansion, we
maintain a relatively bearish outlook towards the Argentine renewables industry. An unappealing business
environment and limited project financing opportunities will continue to limit the sector's growth potential
over the forecast period.
Argentina's positive regulatory framework for renewables on the surface looks appealing to investors. For
example, the country has adopted an ambitious target of sourcing 8% of its electricity demand from

Ecuador Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Ecuador Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Ecuador's upstream sector will experience very modest growth in the remainder of the decade,
but its downstream sector could see transformation from being a net importer of refined products to a
significant exporter of refined products by 2017. BMI overall holds a bearish outlook for the country, with a
big question mark hanging over the future of Ecuador's largest untapped oil field.
The key trends and developments in Ecuador's oil and gas sector are:

Portugal Renewables Report Q1 2015

Portugal Renewables Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Growth in the Portuguese renewable energy market continues to be sluggish, with the country's
embattled economy weighing on growth prospects in the power and renewables industries. The wind sector
dominates the renewables mix. We do not expect growth to pick up markedly as investor sentiment remains
low and the renewables project pipeline is limited.
Portugal has been pursuing a green energy agenda since 2001, adopting the E4 Programme (Energy

Hong Kong Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Hong Kong Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: With no domestic energy resources, Hong Kong will be required to meet growing oil and gas
demand through imports alone. While Hong Kong can ostensibly fall back on China in order to fulfil its
energy needs, there is some resistance to an overreliance on its parent state from both private and public
entities. Still, as Hong Kong becomes increasingly politically intertwined with Beijing, so too will its energy
policy, and the city-state is increasingly likely to turn to the mainland to achieve its goal of curbing its

Bahrain Water Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Overall little has changed in the Bahrain water sector; however, we have upgraded our forecasts
following the release of new historical data. We anticipate that the need for greater water security and more
efficient distribution infrastructure will continue to be the key issues facing the water services sector, yet the
subdued project pipeline and the difficulties in obtaining financing will offer minimal opportunities for
water infrastructure groups.

Russia Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Russia Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Russia continues its attempts to thwart US and EU sanctions, though will struggle to develop
more technically challenging shale and offshore prospects. That said, there is progress with onshore field
developments in East and West Siberia that will be crucial to mitigating heavy declines from maturing
conventional fields. The biggest obstacle in the way of further growth is the dominance of a few large local
and state-backed players in the market, which makes projects vulnerable to these firms' growing financial
commitments.

Italy Water Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We have extended our forecasts this quarter to cover new indicators, including extraction by
source (lake, river, reservoir, desalination, ground water, spring water, and non-mains consumption).
Overall we maintain our outlook on the Italian water sector, emphasising the need for further
consolidation, improved management and additional investment. However, given the economic slowdown
and continued government financing issues, we do not anticipate much in the way of improvement over our
forecast period.

Sudan and South Sudan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Sudan and South Sudan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Fighting has derailed the country's fragile production recovery, adding further downside
pressure to its bearish long-term production outlook. With the government claiming loose control of the
major oil fields, output could start to revive within the quarter. However, given the fractured and volatile
nature of the conflict and the heavy rebel presence in the oil-producing states, we anticipate more lasting
production outages.
The main trends and developments we highlight for Sudan and South Sudan's oil and gas sectors are:
