New market study, "Belgium Oil & Gas Report Q2 2016", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

With no upstream prospects, Belgium will remain heavily reliant on imported supplies of both liquids and gas. Natural gas consumption will be weak due growing nuclear and renewable generation in the power sector. Meanwhile, the refining sector will perform well as efficiency improvements and low oil prices increase the competitiveness of its downstream facilities.

The main trends and developments in Belgium's oil and gas sector are:

The 10-year extension of the Doel 1 and 2 nuclear reactors in 2015 will maintain the strong position of nuclear in the power sector. The restart of Doel 3 and Tihange 2 reactors in December will limit gas consumption growth over the next 10 years.

Low oil prices and high refining margins has seen greater throughput at Belgium's three Antwerp refineries in H214 and H115. We caution that narrowing refining margins will weigh on this over the coming year.

In May 2015, Yamal LNG signed a contract with Fluxys LNG of Belgium to use the facility at Zeebrugge as a transhipment hub. A 5th storage tank and new loading and unloading capacity will be added.

LNG imports increased marginally through Q315 on the back of lower prices, though the restart of the nuclear facilities reduced this considerably by the end of the year. We expect this trend will remain in place over 2016, with Belgium's LNG terminals utilised well below capacity.

Re-exports of LNG have dried up as arbitrage opportunities to send LNG into Asian have eroded with converging regional prices.
