Presentation on theme: "ENERGY SECTOR IN MONTENEGRO"— Presentation transcript:


2 1. Overview of the Current Situation
Montenegrin Investment Promotion Agency (MIPA)

3 Electric Power Sector EPCG – Electric Power Company of Montenegro;
State Monopoly (67% state ownership - 33% private); New Energy Law adopted in 2003; Regulatory Agency established in January 2004; EPCG functionally unbundled – January 2005; Legal unbundling is taking place in the next period; Treaty establishing the Energy Community in SEE (SEE REM) is signed; Energy Sector Development Strategy is developed.

4 Oil and Gas Sector Jugopetrol Kotor – the largest petrol firm in Montenegro (54% owned by Hellenic Petroleum and 46% owned by Investment funds and citizens). Still, around 40% of the petrol-station are outside of Jugopetrol; Import of oil derivates and gas is free (12 importers); Regulatory Energy Agency established in 2004 is in charge for licenses, but not for final price of the oil derivates and gas; Annual import of oil derivates is 350,000 t; There is no infrastructure for gas distribution and therefore consumption of gas is minimal one; There is no Petroleum Law;

5 2. Hydro and Thermo Potential

6 Hydro Power Potential Total hydropower potential 10 TWh;
Utilized at the moment - 17%; Two large hydropower plants, installed capacity 649 MW, average annual generation 1.7 TWh; 7 small hydropower plants, installed capacity 9,025 MW, average annual generation 21 GWh.

7 Hydro Power Plants Decisions on privatization is made;
Privatization Strategy of the EPCG will be completed by October 1st 2005; Focus will be on providing framework for privatization of Distribution system and Production; EPCG is functionally unbundled;

8 Small Hydro Power Plants
EPCG Board of Directors made decision for 5 Small hydro plants to be privatized; Necessary documents are being prepared, tender procedure is about to be announced; Total installed capacity 2,71 MW; annual generation 5,5 GWh.

9 Opportunities for New SHPP
There are 70 project designs for SHPPs (capacity – up to 10 MW), total installed capacity 231,005 MW and average annual generation 642,933 GWh. There are project designs for 16 SHPPs with installed capacity up to 1 MW, 17 SHPPs with installed capacity from 1 to 2 MW, and 37 SHPPs with installed capacity over 2 MW.

10 Large HPP projects HPP “KOSTANICA” (544 MW 1332,1 GWh/y)
HPPs on Moraca River (Natural flow: 238,4 MW; 693,7 GWh/y, Water diversion: 357,6 MW; 1010 GWh/y HPP “KOMARNICA” (168 MW; 231,3 GWh/y) HPP “LJUTICA” (224 MW; 553,6 GWh/y)

11 Thermo Power Potential
One thermal power plant, installed capacity 210 MW, average annual generation 1.07 TWh; Gray lignite coal potential: In Pljevlja – estimated reserves 205 million t out of which proved exploitations reserves are about 110 million t In Berane (gray coal) – estimated reserves 38 million t out of which exploitations reserves are 17 million t

12 New Potentials Solar energy; Energy by Wind.
Estimated reserves of gas in Block III are about 200 billion m3. Other two block are not estimated yet; Solar energy; Energy by Wind. Pilot project – Wind Plant at Vilusi (near NIksic). 500 kW. 1,25-1,80 GWh/god.

13 Production, Consumption and Balance of Electricity

15 Is there a gas in Montenegro?
Off shore of Montenegro is divided in three blocks for exploration; The State gave concession rights to Jugopetrol which for exploration are expiring latest by 2007; Jugopetrol signed two joint ventures contracts with foreign partners; There are possibilities for new international tenders for gas exploration and exploitation (including gas on the land);

16 Large HPP projects HPP “KOSTANICA” (544 MW 1332,1 GWh/y)
HPPs on Moraca River (Natural flow: 238,4 MW; 693,7 GWh/y, Water diversion: 357,6 MW; 1010 GWh/y HPP “KOMARNICA” (168 MW; 231,3 GWh/y) HPP “LJUTICA” (224 MW; 553,6 GWh/y)

17 Overview of the Investment Possibilities
