BMI View: Ecuador's upstream sector will suffer from the broader industry downturn through the

remainder of the decade, but its downstream sector will shift to net exporter status by 2018.

Our modest growth forecast is as a result of increased private sector participation, but continued

uncertainty regarding greenfield investments temper our enthusiasm.

Latest Updates and Key Forecasts

? We maintained our forecast for Ecuadorian liquids production to account for increased investment into its

mature oil assets. We now expect the country to return to growth in 2016 as oilfield services (OFS)

providers boost output from existing projects.

? The controversial ITT heavy oil field project advanced in July following the spudding of Petroamazonas'

first well in the Tiputini field in April. Located on the fringe of the Yasuni National Park, the

development of Block 43 in the Amazon rainforest has continued despite strong grassroots and

international opposition to the project given the environmentally sensitive nature of the area. In July, the

government announced the field held more that 750mn bbl more than originally expected, encouraging

our more optimistic reserve outlook. First oil from the area is expected before the end of the year, with

production expected to reach 20,000b/d by December.

? The start-up of the modernised Esmeraldas refinery in Q415 is weighing on Ecuador's net crude exports

as imported supplies are used to feed the facility.

? With respect to gas, activity remains centred on bolstering output from Block 6 in the Gulf of Guayaquil.

While there has been some investment into further exploration, we believe production of natural gas will

remain minimal such that output will begin to slip toward the mid-point of our forecast period.

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 76
    BMI View: Vietnam's dependence on energy imports is set to deepen over the coming decade, as strong growth in domestic demand for crude oil, refined fuels and natural gas comes in conflict with falling production. The increase in oil demand will primarily be driven by a more than tripling of its refining capacity, alongside positive macroeconomic and demographic factors. Gas demand will surpass output for the first time in 2020, when Vietnam's first import terminal is ant......

    BMI View: Shortages of natural gas are expected to persist until the start of the Juniper field in late 2017. These supply challenges will continue to disrupt gas exports and comes amid government concerns over the profitability of liquefied natural gas exports. The government has also called for operators to fully exploit existing acreage, suggesting the emergence of tensions between officials and upstream players. Investment has suffered continued delays due to the curr......

    BMI View: Slovakia has above-average energy import dependency compared with the regional average. The country remains reliant on Russia but is actively pushing through several projects aimed at improving bi-directional flows and establishing regional links for a regional gas market in Central and Southeast Europe. Its role a key gas transit country for gas coming from Russia, through Ukraine and Slovakia before heading to Western Europe, should also be maintained over the......
  • Pakistan Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: Low oil prices, upstream spending cuts and natural declines combine to paint a bleak near-term upstream outlook for Pakistan, though its strong pipeline of discoveries and exploration plays point to plenty of upside once prices begin to rebound more significantly. The country will remain reliant on crude oil, refined fuels and natural gas imports to quench rising domestic demand. LNG imports are set to experience exponential growth, as influx of additional gas s......

    BMI View: Improvements in the refining sector have boosted refined fuels production, though 2016 is proving to be tougher with margins expected to drop. An oil discovery by Total in the Bulgarian section of the Black Sea highlights the potential for both oil and gas exploration in the black Sea. This is a play opening move for Bulgaria and exploration will continue into 2017. The exploration outlook onshore in Bulgaria remains much more limited. Latest Updates And K......

    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: South Korea will continue to remain a major global refining powerhouse due to a highly complex and sophisticated refining industry, though export volumes will come under pressure in the long term due to falling utilisation rates and growing competition in the exports market. The country is also the world's second largest consumer of LNG, though import volumes are poised to record consistent yearly declines over the coming decade on greater fuel source diversific......
  • Russia Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 116
    BMI View: Oil production continues to outperform as a weak rouble lowers operating costs and results in stable levels of capex going further. Gas production has been steady, though weak domestic demand has been offset by an increase in exports to Europe. The main trends and developments we highlight for Russia's oil & gas sector are: ? Crude oil and condensate production averaged 10.87mn b/d in 9M16. ? We have revised up our 2017 and 2018 oil and condensate forecast......
