Southeast Asia Energy Sector Outlook, 2020
|出版日期||內容資訊||英文 210 Pages
Energy demand in Southeast Asia is expected to increase consistently over the next five years, on account of anticipated industrial growth, high GDP growth and increasing urbanization in Southeast Asian countries. During 2010-14, consumption of crude oil in Southeast Asia grew at 3.75%, while the production declined by 2.02%. A similar trend was observed in the region's natural gas scenario, with consumption growing at 1.71% and natural gas production exhibiting a marginal growth of 0.44% during the same period. As a result of this widening gap in production and consumption of natural gas and crude oil in Southeast Asia, cross border energy trading is expected to offer huge opportunities for oil & gas producers as well as a viable solution for meeting the energy requirements of the region. Moreover, cross border energy exchange between Southeast Asian countries would bring down the costs associated with fuel transportation significantly.
According to “Southeast Asia Energy Sector Outlook, 2020” , a significant amount of energy generated in Southeast Asia is lost due to Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses during transmission and distribution of electricity. Consequently, governments are increasing their focus on improving and strengthening distribution and transmission networks for narrowing power demand supply gap. Additionally, increasing efforts by all regional governments to establish a favorable policy environment and eliminate trade barriers is expected to play a vital role in facilitating cross border energy exchange among Southeast Asian countries over the next decade.
“Southeast Asia Energy Sector Outlook, 2020” discusses the following aspects of energy and power market in Southeast Asia:
