Saudi Arabia Power Report Q1 2016

Saudi Arabia Power Report Q1 2016

BMI View: The outlook for public spending on all but the most important power sector infrastructure hasdarkened this quarter as the Saudi government undertakes fiscal consolidation - with the government likelyto cut capex as it faces up to lower oil revenues. Delays and cancellations to the most ambitious and costlyprojects across all areas of the power sector remain the biggest risk to our forecasts as the Kingdomrationalises spending.

Latest Trends And Developments:

The outlook for Saudi Arabia's economy has deteriorated this quarter as lower oil prices force thegovernment to ramp up the pace of fiscal consolidation. Given the power sector's reliance on governmentspending, this has by extension darkened our capacity and generation forecasts.

These conditions do not mean that the government will not spend on power infrastructure as it attempts tokeep pace with surging electricity demand and diversify the oil-heavy power mix so as to preserve oil forexport (rather than burning it domestically). It does, however, mean that certain projects - such as theFadhili gas project - which are crucial to the Saudi energy sector will be realised while others will bedelayed or cancelled.
