BMI View: While it will continue to remain a global refining powerhouse, aggressive cutbacks in refining

capacity and a gradual shift away from oil-based fuels will weigh on Japan's refined fuels exports in the

long run. Japan will remain the largest LNG buyer in the world through to 2025, though the risk of an LNG

oversupply domestically is pertinent due to the rise of alternative energy sources such as nuclear, coal and

renewables energy, which will erode gas' share in the total power mix and drag on overall demand.

Latest Updates And Key Forecasts

? Despite boasting world-class capability, the Japanese refining sector is vulnerable to further consolidation

and capacity cuts as the government seeks to reduce overcapacity and improve the sector's efficiency.

Mergers of the country's largest refiners are imminent, with JX Holdings and TonenGeneral expected to

merge by April 2017, while Idemitsu Kosan and Showa Shell are set to follow likewise between

October 2016 and April 2017.

? Difficulties with restarting Japan's currently shut nuclear reactors will see the country increasingly rely on

coal and renewables energy, eroding LNG share in the total power mix. In July 2016, the Otsu district

court rejected Kansai Electric's rejection of a March injunction which ordered the firm to shut down its

No.3 and No.4 nuclear reactors at its Takahama plant.

? The Japanese Fair Trade Commission (FTC) has launched an investigation to determine whether

destination clauses contained within existing long-term LNG contracts with international suppliers violate

domestic competition laws. If found so, it could see Japan step-up efforts to renegotiate existing contract

terms.

? Japan will remain a major exporter of various light-to-middle distillates throughout our forecast period to

2025, though large import requirement for LPG and petrochemicals will see it remain a net importer of

refined fuels.
