Market Report, "Hungary Petrochemicals Report Q2 2014", Published

LogoThe Hungarian petrochemicals industry is seeing an improvement in demand as the automotive industry shows stronger rates of growth and external market conditions brighten. In recent months, a low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant has been brought back online while construction has begun at a new butadiene unit, indicating that investors retain confidence in the country's diversifying downstream sector. The first 11 months of 2013 witnessed chemicals output growth of 7.4%, while plastic and rubber production declined by an average of 2.8%. The Hungarian manufacturing sector as a whole reported growth of 1.2% with H213 seeing a strong recovery y-o-y, albeit from a low base. Plastics and rubber were under severe pressure amid a drastic decline in the automotive sector.

South Korea Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014 - New Market Study Published

LogoWhile there are efforts to stimulate upstream oil and gas activity, there is little to suggest that South Korea can develop significant resources, meaning the country is set to remain a key importer of crude and natural gas in liquefied form. The government is planning initiatives aimed at reducing oil and LNG consumption, though a safety scandal in the nuclear industry is driving demand of LNG imports to provide short-term cover for lost power generation.

"Israel Oil & Gas Report Q1 2014" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoGas production from the Tamar field is expected to ramp up considerably since coming online in March 2013 and will make Israel self-sufficient in natural gas supplies for the first time ever. We expect stagnation in production growth through to 2015 as bottlenecks at the onshore receiving facility at Ashdod will limit production to 10.5bcm. This should be resolved by 2016 in sufficient time to take output from the Leviathan field where development will begin in mid-2014. Gas from Leviathan could flow from late 2018 with export opportunities increasingly likely from this point. We see comparatively strong liquids upside with growing condensate volumes from Tamar and eventually Leviathan. Furthermore, near shore licences are showing greater likelihood of condensate and oil providing upside for the oil reserves outlook.

"Sudan & South Sudan Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoAlthough South Sudan avoided another production shut-in only after successful diplomatic efforts, political crisis was again on track to derail the oil sector. At the time of writing, South Sudan was in the midst of a civil war, which had already interrupted production that had been on its way to recovery. While the outcome of the conflict was uncertain, it underscored our caution with regard to both Sudan and South Sudan, where above-ground risks remain extremely elevated. Below ground, a similarly bearish outlook could prove problematic for the plans to construct a pipeline from South Sudan's fields to end its reliance on Khartoum. Similarly, we are less than optimistic over Sudan's push for dramatic production increases, retaining our overall bearish view for the combined oil sectors of Sudan and South Sudan.

Photovoltaic Solar Panels Launches Resource Center to Spread the Word on Clean Energy

Ever since Al Gore first set the debate alight with An Inconvenient Truth, a lot has changed. Global warming became climate change so that the effects could be more easily understood in public perception, and 98% of the scientific community agrees that manmade contributions can significantly affect the rate and severity of climate change. As such, the pressure is on for everyone to look at more sustainable energy sources than carbon-emitting fossil fuels. Solar Panels Photovoltaic is a website dedicated to promoting information that can help people make this transition.

"Wind Turbine Market in India 2014" Published

LogoNetscribes' latest market research report titled Wind Turbine Market in India 2014 mentions that renewable energy is gaining prominence within the country. Wind energy accounts for majority of the renewable energy generated in the country. With India facing continuous shortfall in the supply of energy required to cater to the demands of its growing population through conventional sources, the focus is shifting from conventional to renewable sources of energy. As more and more wind power projects are being planned for this reason, the market for wind turbines is also expected to grow. Various other reasons such as high prices and the lack of easy availability of raw materials for generating electricity through thermal plants are also responsible for driving growth within the market. However, the government's decision to withdraw various schemes that provided several incentives to wind energy producers in the past is having a negative impact on the market's growth. Off-shore wind energy generation, hybrid generators such as solar photovoltaic, wind and diesel as well as the advent of small wind turbines are some of the key trends that are being witnessed in the industry at present. Several government and industry bodies are working towards the development of the market and various policy and regulatory incentives are being provided to wind energy producers. However, the market remains import dependent. Majority of the players operating in the market are foreign companies and there is stiff competition among these players. The advancements in technology and the resultant reduction in costs will ensure that the market will grow steadily over the next few years.

Market Report, "Ukraine Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014", Published

LogoSustained interest from major international companies in Ukraine's gas reserves provides some upside potential in alleviating a part of its import burden in the long run. However, a recent deal with Gazprom, which cuts natural gas import prices to Ukraine by 33%, poses risks to new exploration and production developments as the downward pressure on prices could weaken the profit margins of the exploration and production (E&P) activity.

New Report Available: Argentina Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014

Logowhile our oil and gas production forecasts are still fundamentally cautious given Argentina's poor business environment, we are turning modestly more optimistic toward the country's oil and gas sector. Indeed, its small steps toward reform have been met with enthusiasm by international firms, resulting in a number of investment agreements in the past few quarters. We do not discount the substantial risks inherent in operating in Argentina. However, its massive shale potential, and recent political signals that we are likely to see more orthodox policymaking ahead - at least when it comes to the oil and gas sector - suggest that the risks to our view lie to the upside.

Recent Study: Argentina Power Report Q2 2014

LogoPolitical and macroeconomic factors cast a shadow over the short-term development of Argentina's electricity sector. Protectionist policies have long defined the market, and while a change in the presidency is almost certain in 2015's elections, there are no obvious candidates so far. Argentina is keen to reduce its reliance on expensive energy imports, particularly given the recent devaluation of the peso, but the current operating environment does little to attract investment from foreign firms. The contract to expand the Arauco I wind farm received just one bid, confirming the need for a change in the tender process, while access to finance is another concern. That said, recent blackouts in Buenos Aires have thrust the issue of underinvestment into the political limelight, and have led the government to announce plans to make large new investments in the sector.

Papua New Guinea Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014 - New Report Available

LogoThe first LNG deliveries from Papua New Guinea's ExxonMobil-led PNG LNG facility, the country's first gas export project, are expected as scheduled in H2 2014. There continues to be new proposals for LNG exports, and with Total's deal in PRL 15, Interoil's LNG export plans for the Elk/ Antelope field may finally move forward. Gas projects will also offer some relief to a decline in liquids output, condensate from the PNG LNG project will give oil production a temporary boost.

Equatorial Guinea Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014 - New Market Study Published

LogoAlthough the start of a number of small fields and continued interest in West Africa's deepwater are positive trends for Equatorial Guinea's oil and gas sector, the temporary recovery in oil production will gave way to gradual downtrend, placing the country's heavily oil-dependent economy at risk. While new discoveries could to support an expansion of the country's LNG export capacity, uncertainty over the market and infrastructure has rendered investment decisions repeatedly delayed. Notwithstanding the possibility of new discoveries, we expect both oil and gas production in the West African nation to gradually head lower over the course of the decade.
