BMI View: With a lack of below-ground rewards , Chile suffers from a deficit of hydrocarbon supplies and a high dependence on imported energy feedstock. Chile's most immediate opportunities lie in the expansion of their LNG import facilities as a means to meet growing domestic demand . On a longer-term basis, Chile is exploring the possibility of tapping i t s unconventional resources in the Magallanes region, though we caution its development has grown increasingly unlikely within a lower oil price environment.

Key trends and developments in the Chilean oil & gas sector are:

  • On September 4, Chile's national oil company (NOC) ENAP submitted an environmental impact assessment to local authorities for its 60-well drilling plan. This USD204mn project will include both exploration and development wells in the Magallanes region and will target unconventional natural gas deposits in the Arenal block.

  • On October 9, Spanish contractor Duro Felguera announced it has been awarded a turnkey contract to build the Penco-Lirquen liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal in Concepcion Bay. This will be the country's third import terminal and is expected to start operations by H218. A strategic goal of President Michelle Bachelet, this additional facility will help support growing domestic demand for natural gas.

  • ENAP's Q315 earnings announced on October 30 were among the strongest it has experienced in the past 15 years owning to falling import costs and improving refining margins. Reporting revenues of USD240mn and EBITDA of USD664mn, these strong results will help service some of the NOC's debt and will support its upstream spending plans in the years ahead.

  • Macroeconomic growth will continue as strong investment into consumer sectors over the next five years will support domestic demand for refined products over the next five years. The weakened Chilean peso will support investment into these sectors and will bolster the draw for high value-added industrial manufacturing.
