PTIT FOCUS Special Annual Issue 2008 - "A Year of Thorny Dilemma"

The term thorny dilemma as we knew it has been redefined since the world was plunged into a crisis in 2008. The historic year was characterized first by an oil shock in the first half during which crude prices soared from US$90 a barrel to $140, then by their downward spiral for the rest of the year to US$40. The macroeconomic repercussions of this wild swing are not limited only to energy players but have been felt far and wide among industries across the world.

 

In hindsight, 2008 could hardly have turned out to be any worse but one would be reckless to think recovery would come any time soon. The year 2009 can prove to be a very difficult year, with world economic growth forecast at no more than 0-1%. How the world will fare this year remains unknown but what is certain is our struggle will not be easy. No matter how bad the situation is, we still have high hopes that with all the lessons learned from the crisis, the world will be better prepared for the recovery and to meet the challenges that await us in 2009.

PTIT Focus Special Annual Issue 2006 - "Managing Volatility"

During 2006, a number of dramatic socio-political and economic events occurred at both global and local levels, which complicated the business environment. Geopolitics in oil-producing countries, in particular, created uncertainties over oil supply. Crude oil prices surged since the beginning of the year due to tensions over Iran’s nuclear development program and militant attacks on Nigeria’s oil installations in the Niger Delta. However, the mood seesawed between these psychological factors and the bearish US inventory levels, coupled with the not-so-active hurricane season and the warmer-than-expected winter temperature. On the domestic level, continued violence in the deep south, political uncertainty throughout the year and the strengthening of the Thai baht were not favorable to the business environment either – although the September 19 coup d’etat and installation of an interim government did alleviate political turmoil. So, it seemed there was an ever-increasing (and continuing) volatility everywhere. To ensure sustainable growth, an ability to manage such volatility in a well-balanced manner with moderation and self-immunity (the principles of the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy) would be crucial to weather through this difficult period full of many uncertainties. PTIT Focus Special Annual Issue is a comprehensive compendium of the year’s events with in-depth analyses of the petroleum, petrochemical and energy-related businesses. It also features important policy and regulatory reviews as well as the much sought-after statistics for policy and investment planning.

PTIT Focus Special Annual Issue 2005 - "A Year of Changes"

A new paradigm for oil prices had been set. The sustained rise in oil prices in 2005 has pushed the price of U.S. benchmark WTI crude average to $56.48/B, rising more than 36% from 2004. This was driven by strong oil demand, a result of economic growth, unexpectedly tight refined products markets, as well as natural disasters and various socio-political events. The resultant financial impact on refining and marketing were somewhat mixed. Downstream businesses, particularly retail marketing, were in really bad shape. The industry also experienced several changes such as the introduction of biofuels and natural gas for vehicles. The Thai government also took the initiative by introducing Gasohol 95 as a replacement for premium-grade gasoline, mandated for January 1, 2007 and Gasohol 91, as replacement for regular-grade gasoline, mandated for January 1, 2010 Changes in the petrochemical sector were quite different. The record-high oil and gas prices applied downward pressure on upstream petrochemical margins when compared to 2004. However, the price spread in 2005 was still much higher than 2003. What to expect for 2006 ? The thin spare upstream and downstream capacity, strong oil demand, geopolitical uncertainty, speculation in energy markets, as well as natural phenomenon will likely continue to be in play in 2006. Read PTIT FOCUS SPECIAL ANNUAL ISSUE 2005 and you may be better prepared for 2006 ! Featured in this issue is an economic review by UBS Securities (Thailand) Ltd. The articles on upstream petroleum were contributed by Chevron and PTTEP, while those on downstream petroleum were from PTT, BCP, ESSO, and BAFS.
