BMI View: The immediate outlook for electricity generation is poor with the country in an official state of energy emergency. Fighting in the east of Ukraine has halted coal production in many mines and has blocked transport lines to power stations. On the upside, BMI understands Ukraine has managed to make payments for gas in March and May 2015 and the negotiations for a long-term solution, mediated by the EU , are ongoing. Although Ukraine is increasing its generation of nuclear energy, we still forecast a decline in generation to 15 2 . 9 TWh in 2015, down from 173.8TWh in 2013.
Longer term, both production and consumption will rise as the economy starts to recover and processes of integration with the EU bring about a partial liberalisation of the power sector and investment from abroad. This will create opportunities for investment in Ukraine's power sector. However, multiple barriers stand in the way of developing the sector, including corruption, vested interests and the fractious political environment, meaning that electricity production will fall far short of Ukraine's potential.
Key Trends And Developments
*The short-term outlook for Ukraine's coal-fired power sector is poor due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine's main coal-producing regions in the east of the country. Around two-thirds of Ukraine's mines have ceased activity, forcing Ukraine to import coal to cover its needs.
* Gazprom received USD15mn as prepayment for March 2015 gas supplies. Ukraine made an upfront payment of USD30mn to Gazprom on May 13 to secure gas imports for the month, according to Naftogaz Ukrayiny. Naftogaz has wired a total of USD180mn for Russian gas supplies since the start of Q215, including the latest payment of USD30mn. Ukraine also managed to negotiate a discount on the natural gas supply until the end of Q215. However, a long-term agreement is yet to be reached. European Commission (EC) Vice-President Maros Sefcovic intends to close talks with Ukraine and...
