Tunisia Oil and Gas Report Q4 2016

BMI View: Tunisia's investor-friendly government and stable business environment bodes well for foreign

investors. However, the country's oil reserves are depleting and recent exploration efforts have only

resulted in relatively small discoveries. The low oil prices is also de-incentivising exploration activity at the

moment. We believe that a lack of new significant discoveries will continue pushing Tunisia's oil production

volumes lower across our forecast period to 2025.

Latest Updates And Key Forecasts

- Exploration is yielding positive results in Tunisia despite limited resource potential. While it is unlikely

the country will rid itself of hydrocarbon imports in the coming years, this trend supports greater

exploration and production activity over the long term.

- Having produced 49,000b/d of crude oil and condensates in 2015, Tunisia is a small and declining crude

oil producer. The country's production levels have been decreasing gradually since 2007, when it peaked

at 83,300b/d. While new conventional fields coming online will support Tunisian oil output over the next

four years, they will not be able to compensate for gradual production decline from maturing fields across

our forecast period.

- Following the CAT-1 discovery, Mazarine and ETAP submitted a Plan of Development which was

finalised in Q116 and approved by Comite Consultatif des Hydrocarbues on May 5, 2016.

- The Bizarte refinery will remain the only oil refining facility in Tunisia throughout our forecast period to

2025. With modest capacity of 34,000b/d, refined products production will be unable to meet the rapidly

increasing domestic demand.

- We have upgraded Tunisia's refined fuels consumption outlook this quarter on the back of a more robust

economic growth over the coming years than previously expected. This will promote greater

consumption of refined fuels with consumption set to increase at y-o-y average of 3.0% over the

2016-2020 period.

    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: 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......

    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......
  • Vietnam Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017
    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......
  • Bulgaria Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    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......

    BMI View: Brazil's vast pre-salt reserves suggest substantial growth potential over the long term, underpinning our bullish upstream view that crude, natural gas, and other liquids output will rise over the next decade. However, production growth will be tempered by declining investment funds from Petrobras and continued headwinds from the corruption scandal and continued political fallout following the impeachment.

  • Brunei Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 57
    BMI View: Despite significant offshore potential and ambitious government plans to expand Brunei's upstream sector, the country has relatively small hydrocarbons reserves. This will limit oil and gas production, which will see only minor improvements over the coming five years. Brunei's underdeveloped downstream sector holds much brighter prospects as the new refinery and petrochemical complex at Pulau Muara Besar, scheduled to open in 2018, will support further diversifi......
  • Croatia Oil and Gas Report Q1 2017

    BMI View: Croatia's conservative government has failed to fully articulate its policies for the oil and gas sector, but the administration has adopted a pro-business stance generally that benefit investors. The government could help to restore confidence in the sector following protracted delay and uncertainty over licensing rounds. Aside from a floating proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, the oil and gas sector is likely only to attract a modest level of inves......
