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.

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

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:

South Africa Water Report Q1 2015

South Africa Water Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We have maintained our water forecasts this quarter, as South Africa's water industry continues
to remain comparatively strong, with a large amount of projects in the pipeline. However, with numerous
issues plaguing the water services sector, and limited funds, we anticipate little in the way of new
infrastructure project developments over the coming year.
We highlight various core problems facing the water sector in South Africa. The first of these is the

Tanzania Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Tanzania Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: An unsettled regulatory environment continues to weigh on development of Tanzania's
substantial gas resources. A muted response to the latest licensing round signals market sentiment has
begun to weaken, in spite of a string of major discoveries. Failure to pass the Natural Gas Policy in 2015
will threaten delay to FID on the Lindi LNG project, with downside risk to first production by 2022.
The main trends and developments we highlight for Tanzania's oil and gas sector are:

Trinidad and Tobago Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Trinidad and Tobago Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Trinidad & Tobago has benefitted from a strong pipeline of upstream investment in the oil and
gas sector. The impact of a closing market for liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports in the US has been
ameliorated by growing shipments to Europe, South American and Asia in particular. We continue to
forecast growth in natural gas output to moderate by the end of the decade and expect only incremental
gains liquids production.
The main trends and developments in the Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) oil and gas sector are:

Turkey Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Turkey will remain heavily dependent upon oil and gas imports for the foreseeable future.
Phase II of Shah Deniz and the decision to proceed with the TAP and TANAP natural gas pipelines will
cement Turkey's position as a critical transit country.. There is upside potential to domestic energy
production from the Black Sea and unconventional developments, although it remains too early for either to
be factored into our forecasts. Mounting investment into exploration activities underscores the

Turkmenistan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Turkmenistan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Turkmenistan's growing gas reserves have the country's energy profile on a positive trajectory,
as reflected by our forecasts for strong growth in gas production over the coming years. Our forecast for
gas production to reach 108.8bcm per annum by 2018 implies an average growth rate of 7.4% per annum.
The country's rising potential is supporting a significant strengthening of ties with China, with whom it
shares the China-Central Asia Pipeline, which is slated to provide approximately 40% of China's gas
imports by 2020.

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:

Venezuela Oil and Gas Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI View: We maintain a cautious outlook for Venezuela's oil and gas sector despite vast upstream
potential and ambitious production plans by PdVSA. We expect Venezuela to continue to underperform
given the large scope of operational challenges, such as political interference, chronic underinvestment,
unattractive operating environment and a precarious financial situation facing the dominant national oil
company.

Czech Republic Water Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI View: The Czech Republic has a modern, extensive and relatively efficient water sector. The country's
recent history has seen many developments to the sector, largely due to the high standards required for
entry into the EU. Despite these improvements there is still work to be done and modernisation is ongoing,
especially with regards to the infrastructure and wastewater facilities. As these changes take shape and the
sector begins to see the benefits in its efficiency and reduced leakage, we forecast that the amount of water
