Crude oil, natural gas: How are they formed? Decomposing buried organic material over millions of years through the action of micro-organisms Overlying layers of sand and silt compress lower layers into sedimentary rock; Heat and pressure at depth slowly converts buried organic material into petroleum Petroleum formed deposits may consist mainly of larger (heavy) hydrocarbons, which have the thick, nearly solid consistency of asphalt. As the petroleum matures, and as the breakdown of large molecules continues, successively “lighter” hydrocarbons are produced. In the final stages, most or all of the petroleum is broken down further into very simple, light, gaseous molecules—natural gas. Some natural gas deposits may form from deposits of plant material buried in sediment without association oil 3

Demand in oil and gas Oil demand in 2009 estimated at 85.0 mb/d (-1.4% or -1.2 mb/d year-on-year) but expected to rise to 86.6 mb/d in 2010 (+1.8% or +1.6 mb/d versus 2009) to 120 mb/d in 2030 gas demand expected to rise by 41% from 3.0 trillion cubic metres in 2007 to 4.3 tcm in 2030 world energy demand is projected to increase by over 40% between now and 2030. Non-OECD countries account for over 90% of demand - China and India alone for over half.
Outlook for oil demand 18 Source: IEA Oil Market Report 2010
Factors limiting expansion of supply capacity (1) Geographic and technological challenges – eg. ultra deep waters; very cold & remote regions, undeveloped deserts Challenges in extracting hydrocarbons from complex reservoirs Declining production in certain regions Geopolitical issues causing slowdown of investment Resource nationalism and contract renegotiations OPEC output policies
Factors limiting expansion of supply capacity (2) High operating costs and difficulty in finding and recovering hydrocarbons Economic uncertainty & price volatility on investment -supply growth at slower pace to demand growth Cash flow contraints in host countries for investment A review of investment plans by oil companies because of the credit squeeze
Overview of investment in the oil and gas sector (1) Surge in capital investment in 2007 to 2008 Falling oil and gas prices and volumes took a heavy toll on all producers’ cash flows Many national oil companies, which depend on hydrocarbons for most of their revenue, cut spending or delayed oil and gas projects as a result of falling prices in 2009 and downward revisions in expected profitability The International Energy Agency estimates that investment budgets for global upstream oil and gas sector fell by around 21.0% (or around USD 100 billion) in 2009.
Overview of investment in the oil and gas sector (2) Between October 2008 and April 2009, over twenty large scale upstream oil and gas projects, valued at more than USD USD 170 billion were deferred indefinitely or cancelled (IEA) – 2mb/d oil and 1.0 bcf/d gas Another 35 oil and gas projects were delayed for at least 18 months – 4.2mb/d and 2.3 bcf/d of two years Drop in upstream spending more pronounced in the regions with the highest development costs (eg. Oil sands in Canada) and in small projects dominated by smaller players
Investment outlook for hydrocarbons (1) Large investments continue to be needed to meet growing demand in the medium to longer term, and to offset falling output in many consumer countries Demand uncertainty will complicate investors’ decision making Some NOCs have the necessary financial strength to fund their capital-intensive projects and have continued to spend in the present economic downturn. 2010 capex activity expected to rise, driven mainly by large National Oil Companies (NOCs)
Investment outlook for hydrocarbons (2) The total capital expenditure by listed NOCs (for which data is publicly available) is expected to register a 16% growth to around $375 billion in 2010 (GlobalData) GlobalData forecasts a 12% growth in the oil and gas sector capital expenditure in 2010 and expects the total capex of the leading listed oil and gas companies to exceed $798 billion. According to the WB, the projected needs for primary energy development in Europe from 2010 to 2030 are estimated to be on the order of almost $1.3 trillion in order to ensure the availability of oil, gas, and coal.
Factors limiting new investment Surge of LNG coming into Europe mostly from Qatar Uncertainty in demand eg. US markets becoming self sufficient with Shale gas Price volatility Geopolitical and regulatory uncertainties Investment environment affected by legislative framework eg. an absence of a functioning framework for production-sharing agreements (PSAs). Environmental issues eg. Unconventional crude sector Government reluctance to allow foreign investors in the energy sector
Overview of Russia gas Russia has the largest natural gas reserves in the world. - proven gas reserves in 2008 estimated at 43.3tcm or 23.4% of the world total (BPStatistical Review) Russia is the second-largest consumer of gas in the world after US, consumed 420.2bn cu metres of gas in 2008 approx 13.9% of global consumption (the US consumed 22% of the global total Gas accounts for well over one-half of Russian total primary energy consumption, with a share in the total of 55% in 2008, according to BP Oil and gas sector makes up two-thirds of Russia’s export revenue and more than 20% of its GDP. Accounts for almost one-half of federal budget revenue
Main players in Russia oil and gas Gazprom owns and controls Russia pipeline network Gazprom produces over 80% of national production and has monopoly on exports - provides about a quarter of the European Union’s gas needs Gazprom provides about 8% of budget revenues Impact of the financial crisis has shrunk demand and Gazprom net income in 2009 expected to have fallen by 23% Oil sector dominated by a a few firms, mostly private owned Rosneft the largest accounts for 20% of national output Rosneft looking to break Gazprom gas export monopoly – control of Kovykta gas field (1.6trn) approx 1% of global gas reserves
UNCTAD and oil and gas development Promote Public-Private dialogue and cooperation Provide a forum to exchange experiences and best practices on innovative financing mechanisms Provide/facilitate technical assistance that will improve the ability of banks to provide financing to small and medium enterprises Provide a forum to exchange experiences and best practices on local content development and also provide policy advice for local content development Give training on using market based tools to mitigate price risk exposure 29
