>BMI View:
The improving performance of Qatar's petrochemicals industry was reflected in relatively positive financial results for Industries Qatar (IQ) in H116, although the fertiliser sector has seen a collapse in margins due to poor external demand. The recovery is tenuous and could be derailed by rising capacity and falling prices in key export markets, particularly China. Since the collapse in oil prices since mid-2014, Qatar's petrochemicals sector has struggled with competitiveness. Falling crude prices have reduced the cost of naphtha, closing the price spread with Qatar's dominant gas-based ethane feedstock. This trend, coupled with higher capital costs, has made planned new greenfield world-scale complexes commercially unfeasible.

- Qatar Petroleum is exploring the possibility of expanding through the debottlenecking of some of its existing plants in Mesaieed and Ras Laffan, and to diversify its product portfolio, which is currently 100% ethane feedstock-based.

- Whatever happens in external markets, the country is unlikely to see new basic chemicals and polymers capacity over the five-year forecast period. Although the country possesses plentiful natural gas reserves, the historic decline in the naphtha-ethane spread and high capital costs have made new greenfield worldscale complexes commercially unfeasible.

- Qatar maintains fifth place in our Petrochemicals Risk/Reward Index for the Middle East and North Africa region this quarter, although its score has declined 0.5 points from last quarter to 57.5 points. The downward revision was due to a decline in Qatar's country and market risk scores, caused the rise in the cost of naphtha, which has supported the competitiveness of Qatar's ethane-fed industry. It now lies 0.6 points ahead of Israel and 2.1 points behind Kuwait.
