BMI View:

Subdued oil demand growth means the prospects for refiners and fuels distributors are poor,
with many already facing strong competition. The purchase and reopening of Petroplus' Antwerp plant should reduce downstream uncertainty. The gas market has greater potential, both in terms of rising domestic demand and the scope to re-sell surplus LNG through regional pipeline links. The market is mature, meaning there is a risk that leading industry players may divest as they seek higher growth and wider margins elsewhere.

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

- Total announced plans in September 2012 to invest US$1.3bn in its Antwerp refinery to increase diesel production capacity. The refinery would not see a cut in its 350,000b/d output, but would produce less heavy fuel in a move that Total says could result a US$500mn boost to its refining and petrochemical earnings.

- Petroplus, Europe's largest independent refiner, announced in January 2012 that it had shut down its 107,500 barrels per day (b/d) Antwerp refinery, along with others in Europe, after a syndicate comprising 13 banks froze a US$1bn credit facility READ MORE >
