Natural Gas In The Spotlight

Natural Gas is a major component of energy consumption in the UK and also on a global basis. The United Kingdom produced 60% of its consumed natural gas in 2010. In five years from 2005 the United Kingdom moved from almost gas self-sufficient to 40% gas import in 2010. Gas was almost 40% of total primary energy supply (TPES) and electricity more than 45% in 2010. Underground storage was about 5% of annual demand and more than 10% of net imports. The UK is consuming less energy than it did in 2010 and more of the energy we are consuming is coming from renewable sources.

Natural Gas In The Spotlight

All EU countries imported more energy than they exported in 2014. In terms of rankings, of the 28 EU countries the UK was the 12th most dependent on foreign sources of energy; less reliant than Germany and Italy but more reliant than Sweden and the Netherlands. Most of the gas we import comes through pipelines laid underneath the sea bed. We have established pipelines with Norway and the Netherlands which accounted for 61% and 7% of our 2015 gas imports respectively. We also have established pipelines with Belgium but gas imports from Belgium only accounted for 0.4% of our 2015 gas imports.

The remaining gas imports came to the UK as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) with LNG from Qatar making up 29% of the UK’s gas imports in 2015. Natural gas made up around 29% of the UK’s fuel imports in 2015 with Norway again being a key import partner for this type of fuel. From a UK production perspective Natural gas production rose 8.8 per cent on last year 2016/17 to 25.5 million tonnes, having grown 22.7 per cent in 2015/16 from 2014/15. These more recent figures may present a picture that confidence is continuing to return to the sector after a number of challenging years.

Is The Global Crude Oil Barrel Price Stabilising?

The chart below presents the last five years of price point history for a barrel of crude oil in US dollars. You will see that this is a picture of two halves. Four and Five years ago the price was as high as $110 dollars a barrel and remained consistent for a good 24-month period. However, volatility in the sector appeared in 2014 leading to a record low in modern times to just below $30 US dollars. More recent times have seen the oil price increase to around the $50 US dollar level and the chart below shows a reasonable level of stability.

Is The Global Crude Oil Barrel Price Stabilising?

The oil industry sector is very price sensitive for investments in new oil and gas exploration projects. Globally this has seen an impact of reduced investment across the board for all aspects right from capital plant to consumables and he demand for human resource and expertise. More recently traditional oil exploration methods found in the known locations is now being challenged by new shale deposit areas. Shale exploration looks to be the predominant theme in oil markets for 2017 and is expected to continue into 2018. This new resource may leave the prospect of an increase in the price of crude oil less likely.

US Levy Suggestion For Oil Imports To The USA For 2017

With the recent elections in the USA, the new administration has suggested that am import tax would be levied which would have a large implication on crude oil prices and product globally. Non USA based oil producers may have to look at other markets if the USA closes the door on levy free trade for crude oil. The introduction of a border adjustment tax would impact of the world’s largest economy and send waves around the world. This would be especially relevant to global commodities such as crude oil and natural gas.

US Levy Suggestion For Oil Imports To The USA For 2017

The USA is a large importer of crude oil with over 80 countries being used for the sourcing of oil, natural gas and refined petroleum products. The top five importers include Canada, Columbia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. The USA consumes around 1 in every 5 barrels produced on a global basis. Around 50% of this is imported and 50% is soured from its own domestic production. 2017 will be an interesting year for the Oil and Gas industries making it no different from the volatility of the last few years.

40 Years of Gas & Oil Production In The North Sea - What Does The Future Hold?

It is over 40 years since Gas was first discovered in the North Sea and almost 40 years since Oil was first extracted in the same area. Over the last 40 years the industry has had many good years with buoyant revenues and a thriving industry being in place. More recently the global demand for oil and gas has reduced, new fossil fuels have been found elsewhere and new techniques for extraction are being created. Fracking allows for a lower cost compared to North Sea oil and gas production for example. Costs have been declining in the UK with operating costs of extraction for Crude Oil coming down from 29$ a barrel to around 17$ a barrel.

40 Years of Gas & Oil Production In The North Sea - What Does The Future Hold?

UK North Sea production rose 2015 for the first time in 15 years from a peak output in 1999 at around 5 million barrels per day. Employment statistics from industry body, Oil & Gas UK, indicate the North Sea industrial sector supports directly and indirectly around 330,000 jobs, down from an estimated 450,000 in 2014. It will be interesting to see what the future holds. Globally there are reserves with new technologies allowing for a lower cost production. This is compounded by a reduction in demand for fossil fuels specifically oil. It will be interesting to see what the next 40 years will bring to the sector.

Reskilling For Oil & Gas Jobs In The UK

As the UK oil and gas industry sector continues to decline news from Scotland is that a new transition training and development fund has been launched to assist in the redevelopment of skills. This level of support is a reflection of the current state of the oil & gas industry in the UK with depressed prices and low investment.

Expansion Opportunities in Iran As Sanctions Lift Takes Effect

Iranian government departments have announced during July 2016 a new Iran Petroleum Contract (IPC) deal after sanctions were lifted over a year ago back in January 2015. The chief government economic advisory body (the Resistance Economy Headquarters) has just given the approval and go ahead for IPC after a long period of negotiations within the Iranian government. The final draft is expected to be approved in due course and the first contracts awarded in September 2016.

Expansion Opportunities in Iran As Sanctions Lift Takes Effect

Proved oil reserves in Iran, according to its government, rank fifth largest in the world at approximately 150 billion barrels (24×109 m3) as of 2015 which is approximately 10% of the world's total proven petroleum reserves. At 2006 rates of production, Iran's oil reserves would last 98 years if no new oil was found. Iran has more than a century of history in exploration and production; the first successful exploration well was Masjid Suleiman-1 on May 26, 1908. Since then, based on the latest oil and gas reports, 145 hydrocarbon fields and 297 oil and gas reservoirs have been discovered in Iran, with many fields having multiple pay zones. A total of 102 fields are oil and the remaining 43 are gas, and there are 205 oil reservoirs and 92 natural gas reservoirs. According to Iran Energy Balance Sheet 78 of these fields are currently active, with 62 onshore and 16 offshore, leaving 67 fields inactive at present. Some 23 hydrocarbon fields lie in border areas and are shared between Iran and adjacent countries, including Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Turkmenistan.

Saudi Arabia Scales Back Renewable Energy Plans

Saudi Arabia has made recent announcements to cuts renewables target to 10% of energy mix from 50% and is reducing renewable power targets. The world’s biggest oil exporter is planning to use more natural gas, moving away from targets originally established when crude prices were three times their current values, according to Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih. “Our energy mix has shifted more toward gas, so the need for high targets from renewable sources is not there anymore,” Al-Falih said. “The previous target of 50 percent from renewable sources was an initial target and it was built on high oil prices” near $150 a barrel, he said.

Saudi Arabia Scales Back Renewable Energy Plans

Saudi Arabia, which holds the world’s second-largest crude reserves, will double natural gas production, according to Al-Falih, and the government will expand the distribution network to the western part of the nation. Generating more power from gas and renewables should make more crude available for export, which would otherwise be burned for electricity for domestic use. Saudi Arabia has become the world's largest oil producer and exporter, controlling the world's second largest oil reserves, and the sixth largest gas reserves.

North Sea Oil Receipts Hit Record Low For 50 Years

The United Kingdom government has announced that it has incurred a loss from North Sea Gas and Oil production for the first time since records began nearly 50 years ago. Gas and Oil production generated negative receipts in 2015-16 of -£24m, compared with +£2.15bn the year before. Petroleum Revenue Tax (PRT) revenue was -£562m, following refunds to companies, while corporation tax revenue fell by 74% over the year to £538m. The North Sea industry sector contributed £10.9bn to the Treasury just five years ago in respect to actual output for Gas and Oil production.

North Sea Oil Receipts Hit Record Low For 50 Years

In March 2016, the chancellor announced a major update of the North Sea tax system as a proactive action to the difficulties facing the UK Gas and Oil sectors. As of January 2015, the North Sea was the world's most active offshore drilling region with 173 active rigs drilling. By May 2016, the North Sea Gas and Oil industry was financially stressed by the reduced oil prices, and calling for government support. It will be interesting to see how the UK sector performs throughout 2016.
