BMI View: Japan’s consumption of imported oil and natural gas has increased as a result of nuclear power generation losses in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Over the longer term, a reassessment of energy strategy means nuclear will play a less prominent role and, inevitably, gas will have to make up part of the shortfall. This suggests Japan will become a still bigger player in global LNG purchasing.

The main trends and developments we highlight for Japan’s Oil and Gas sector are:

- Japanese oil consumption is expected to remain static in 2012, at around 4.48mn barrels per day
(b/d). Volumes rose by an estimated 145,000b/d in 2011 following the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in March of the year, which resulted in greatly reduced nuclear generation and a significant upturn in oil- and gas-fired power generation to compensate. By 2016, the country is expected to be consuming 4.52mn b/d of oil, with demand predicted to head slightly lower to 4.46mn b/d by 2021.
