Key Insights into the Oil & Gas Sector of South Africa

The latest South Africa Oil & Gas Report from BMI forecasts that the country will account for 5.07% of MEA regional oil demand by 2010, with negligible domestic crude production, but a growing synthetic oil capability. MEA regional oil demand rose to 10.7mn b/d last year and should average 10.9mn b/d in 2006, before reaching 12.20mn b/d by 2010. MEA gas consumption in 2005 was 343bcm, with demand of 533bcm targeted for 2010. Production last year of 448bcm should reach 774bcm by the end of the decade. South Aftrica’s share of consumption in 2005 was just 0.87%, while it made no appreciable contribution to supply. By 2010, its share of demand is forecast to be 1.88%, with the country accounting still accounting for less than 1.0% of regional gas production.

Assuming an uneventful Q4, we are now predicting an OPEC basket price for 2006 averaging US$61.10/bbl – an increase of US$1.10 from our June forecast. This also represents a 19% rise from the FY05 average. Our forecasts for the US, Brent and Urals are US$66.40, US$65.40 and US$61.60/bbl respectively. For 2007, we continue to assume an OPEC basket price of US$50/bbl, which implies US$55.40 for the US, US$53.40 for Brent and US$49.50 for Urals. Prices are then forecast to fall by around US$5/bbl in 2008-2010, with the OPEC price averaging US$45/bbl over the period.

South African real GDP growth is now forecast by BMI at 4.1% for 2006, following 4.9% in 2005. We are assuming 5.0% growth in 2007 and 4.2% in 2008, followed by 3.8% in 2009 and 3.7% in 2010. We expect oil demand to rise from 529,000b/d last year to 616,000b/d in 2010, representing 3.0% annual growth that lags our underlying economic assumptions. There is virtually no domestic crude production, although national companies contribute some 220,000b/d of synthetic oil output. IOCs are restricted largely to roles in oil refining and fuels distribution. Gas production should reach 5bcm by 2010, up from 1bcm last year. Consumption is expected to rise from 3bcm to 10bcm by the end of the forecast period, requiring imports of 5bcm.

In the BMI Business Environment Ranking matrix, South Africa this quarter receives an unchanged composite score of 38, which still ranks the country fourth out of 16 states included in the MEA region. The overall business environment can be considered attractive in a regional context, thanks largely to relatively low levels of perceived economic and political risk, plus a benign competitive landscape and an effective production sharing/licensing framework.
