BMI View: Natural gas power will dominate regional power generation in the MENA region - given the
widespread availability of feedstock and government capacity to fund gas-power expansion. MENA has an
extremely successful track record of moving projects along the project pipeline and we expect the MENA
region to add a total of 113.2 gigawatts (GW) over the coming decade.
- Robust power consumption across a series of markets will be a key dynamic in the MENA region over the next decade, translating into substantial investment opportunities. The GCC will prove relatively attractive due to a stable investment environment and robust government support for power sector expansion in order to meet surging power demand. For example, we note that markets such as Oman, Kuwait, UAE and Qatar will all require substantial growth in power generation in order to fuel energy intensive water desalination and air-conditioning.
- Given that we expect a sustained period of lower oil prices to lead to rationalisation of government spending in the power sector amid budgetary pressures, we anticipate that markets in the GCC will increasingly tap private investment through the public-private partnership (PPP) model.
