Abstract:

BMI s latest Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan petrochemicals report provides detailed analysis of planned projects in these two hydrocarbons-rich countries, which represent virgin territory for the global petrochemicals industry. The report assesses market size and potential as well as the latest trends in output at established facilities. ...The development of Uzbekistan s petrochemicals industry is constrained by the relatively poor business environment. A gas-fed complex is planned for a site at Akchalak with capacity to produce ---,---tpa of ethylene and downstream units with capacity for ---,---tpa high density polyethylene (HDPE) and ---,---tpa PP. BMI has made the following observations and forecasts: Combined ethylene capacity in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan is expected to expand from ---,---tpa in ---- to -.--mn tpa by ---- upon the completion of the KPI complex. Polymer capacity in the region is set to rise from ---,---tpa to -.--mn tpa as a result of the development of such complexes. Plans to bring onstream a small polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in Uzbekistan have been repeatedly delayed, prompting us to exclude it from our five-year forecasts; however, it looks as if construction may go ahead by ----. Although planned petrochemicals production in Uzbekistan is likely to be smaller than in Kazakhstan, BMI believes it will be more dependent on exports, with the economy expanding at a slower rate and the country having a smaller market relative to Kazakhstan.

...Strengths Abundant hydrocarbon resources, particularly in Kazakhstan, provide the basis for a large, efficient and low-cost natural-gas-based petrochemicals sector. Kazakhstan has major international oil companies (IOCs) as partners, which can provide financial support and technology, while Uzbekistan is seeking privatisation as a route to higher investment. ...Threats Political risk is relatively high in the region, which, given extensive state control of energy and petrochemicals interests, undermines stability. Uzbekistan is struggling to effectively exploit its limited natural resources, has little foreign company involvement, and is faced with strong regional competition from countries such as Kazakhstan. Export dependence for the petrochemicals segment means exposure to cyclical market prices. ...Uzbekistan is struggling to effectively exploit its limited natural resources, has little foreign company involvement, and is faced with strong regional competition from countries such as Kazakhstan. Export dependence for the petrochemicals segment means exposure to cyclical market prices.

...Strengths Firm leadership and strong rule have been key in tackling religious extremism. Weaknesses Widespread corruption undermines the political systems of both the individual Central Asian states and the region as a whole. ...
