July 4, 2011 - PRLog -- The latest Singapore Oil & Gas Report from BMI forecasts that the country will account for 3.71% of Asia Pacific regional oil demand by 2015, while not contributing to supply. Regional oil use of 20.6mn barrels per day (b/d) in 2001 reached an estimated 26.4mn b/d in 2010 and is forecast to rise to around 29.6mn b/d by 2015. Regional oil production was around 7.6mn b/d in 2001 and averaged an estimated 8.0mn b/d in 2010. It is set to increase to 8.2mn b/d by 2015. Oil imports are growing rapidly, because demand growth is outstripping the pace of supply expansion. In 2001, the region was importing an average 12.99mn b/d. This total rose to an estimated 18.37mn b/d in 2010 and is forecast to reach 21.4mn b/d by 2015. The principal importers will be China, Japan, India and South Korea. By 2015 the only net exporter will be Malaysia.

In terms of natural gas, in 2010 the region consumed around 511.5bn cubic metres (bcm) and demand of 653.9bcm is targeted for 2015. Production of an estimated 405.8bcm in 2010 should reach 556.7bcm in 2015, implying net imports falling from around 105.7bcm to 97.2bcm. Singapore's estimated share of gas consumption in 2010 was 1.95%, and its share is expected to rise to 2.10% by 2015. There is no gas production in Singapore.

Global GDP growth in 2011 is forecast at 3.5%, down from 4.3% in 2010. Growth in both the US and eurozone should be marginally higher than 2010, while Chinese economic expansion will slow and Japan's growth will slump to 0.7% as a result of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.

Singapore's real GDP growth in 2010 stood at 14.5%, with the forecast average annual increase put at 6.2% in 2010-2015. There is no domestic oil or gas production but there is an active downstream segment, with extensive international oil company (IOC) involvement in refining and petrochemicals. Oil consumption beyond 2009 is forecast to increase by around 3% per annum to 2015, implying demand of 1.09mn b/d by the end of the forecast period. Gas demand and imports are forecast to increase from an estimated 10.0bcm in 2010 to 13.7bcm by 2015.

Between 2010 and 2020, we are forecasting an increase in Singapore's domestic oil consumption from 946,000b/d to 1.27mn b/d, with the island's refining capacity rising from 1.39mn b/d to 1.55mn b/d. Gas demand is expected to rise from around 10.0bcm in 2010 to a possible 19.7bcm by 2020, driven by power generation requirements. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports are expected to commence in 2013. Details of BMI's 10-year forecasts, which provide regional and country-specific projections, can be found later in this report.

Singapore holds 11th place, above Thailand, in BMI's composite Business Environment (BE) league table. The country ranks equal 12th (alongside Hong Kong) in BMI's updated upstream Business Environment ratings, thanks to a virtual absence of hydrocarbon resources. The score reflects the limited involvement of the government in upstream oil activities and an exceptionally healthy country risk profile, which partly offset the lack of reserves and output growth potential. The country sits ahead of South Korea and well clear of bottom-placed Taiwan in the upstream league table. Singapore ranks fourth, behind Japan, in BMI's downstream Business Environment ratings, reflecting its relatively high level of oil consumption, increasing gas demand, established modern refining capability, fuels export capability and a relatively low level of retail site intensity. It is just one point behind Japan, but two clear of South Korea, and seems likely to retain its current position.
