Recent Study: Indonesia Petrochemicals Report Q1 2014

Canada Power Report Q1 2014 - New Market Research Report

LogoWith power demand highly correlated to economic activities, we maintain our relatively positive outlook for the Canadian power sector. Our country risk analysts forecast Canadian real GDP growth to move just above the 2.2-2.3% long-term trend on average in 2014 and 2015, with expansion of 2.3% and 2.5% in those years, respectively. We thus expect that in 2014 power consumption will experience positive growth, albeit at a mere 0.96%. That said, overall generation will decline as Canada's power exports to its southern neighbour will decrease slightly.

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

LogoDespite planned investment in order to stabilise output from Azerbaijan's ACG complex, the long term outlook for liquids is bearish notwithstanding near term gains from the US$6nn Chirag Oil Project (COP). The greatest source of upside risk to our oil outlook comes from our bullish view on Azeri gas, with a number of major untapped gas fields holding liquids potential as well. Despite a number of large fields having already been identified for exploration and appraisal, a shortage of rigs and the technical challenges of the Caspian's operating environment have slowed development. In the absence of firm timelines, we have yet to include these projects in our forecast but note the risks for gas are weighted heavily to upside as progress on strategically significant export infrastructure into Europe continues to advance.

Venezuela Petrochemicals Report 2014 - New Market Study Published

"Spain Power Report Q1 2014" Published

LogoSpain's electricity market is struggling in the face of an unclear regulatory environment and a sluggish economy. Keen to cut costs, the government wants to reduce renewable energy subsidies, but it risks the wrath of providers who invested in the market expecting high returns. At the other end of the scale, major utilities have long been demanding increases in electricity prices to plug the gap between the cost of generation and the prices paid by end-users, but proposals for an 11% increase in January 2014 were rejected by the country's newly created regulator. In the face of this confusion, some players may simply choose to invest elsewhere. E.ON is one example of this, with press reports from late 2013 suggesting that the German utility is keen to sell its assets in Spain.

New Market Research Report: Spain Petrochemicals Report Q1 2014

LogoIn 2012, the industrial production index for chemicals declined 0.7% on average, while for rubber and plastic products it plummeted an average of 9.0%, compared with growth of 0.2% and -1.5% respectively in 2011. In the first four months of 2013, the chemicals production index fell by a further 7.3% while the rubber and plastics index fell by 5.0%. This signalled a deterioration of chemical and petrochemicals performance in H113. Although there was an uptick in April, the operating environment has not changed radically to support a sustained recovery.

New Market Research Report: Italy Power Report Q1 2014

LogoItaly is trying hard to appeal to international investors, with the government reorganising its holdings in gas and power grid networks, and signing investment fund agreements with potential trade partners, such as Russia. But the country is still suffering in the face of economic challenges, and the austerity measures proposed to turn the economy around are unpopular. As such, it is of little surprise that firms such as E.ON are reconsidering their role in Italy's electricity market. In addition, the sluggish economic performance is also having an impact on electricity consumption levels - we have lowered our forecasts this quarter. In the short term at least, we forecast that the renewable energy sector and transmission and distribution projects present the best opportunities for growth.

New Report Available: United States Petrochemicals Report Q1 2014

In total, 7.34mn tpa of new cracker capacity is confirmed within the next five years with proposals for over 10mn tpa more cracker capacity, although some of this may not materialise.

Report Published: "Taiwan Petrochemicals Report 2014"

LogoBMI's latest Taiwan Petrochemicals Report foresees a worrying trend for Taiwanese petrochemicals producers to move investment in basic chemicals to mainland China and South East Asia. Unless Taiwan can diversify and specialise to add value to the olefins production it currently possesses, the industry is likely to fall behind and lose its competitive edge.

Bolivia Oil & Gas Report Q2 2014 - New Market Study Published

LogoWe currently expect hydrocarbons production to continue its upward trajectory in Bolivia over the medium term; however, we are pricing in a slowdown in growth toward the end of the decade. Namely, while the country's oil and gas sector has largely weathered broader concerns related to the business environment, the threat of resource nationalism remains a risk, as does a fairly weak reserve position, encouraging a more tempered long-term outlook. Of the two hydrocarbons, we believe gas has a brighter future, with the redevelopment of producing fields and increased investment into new exploration to bolster output. With regards to liquids, condensate volumes from gas production presents upside potential and we note significant short-term growth from the bringing online of natural gas liquids separators. We believe though, that maturing crude fields suggest potential for a slowdown in growth over the longer term.

New Market Report Now Available: South Korea Petrochemicals Report 2014

LogoThe South Korean petrochemicals market will suffer from weak growth in automotive, construction and retail segments, according to BMI's latest South Korea Petrochemicals Report. Korean petrochemicals production will therefore depend on exports, which should be shored up by the country's trade deal with China that gives it an advantage over competitors like Taiwan and should help absorb the large increases in Korean aromatics capacities in the years ahead. However, the US's surge in petrochemicals growth based on rising shale gas exploitation will pose a major challenge to Korea's naphtha-fed industry, leading to a potential squeeze in margins.
