Latest Updates and Key Forecasts:

- Kuwait remains committed to ambitious production targets for both oil and gas. In order to address anincreasing gap between supply and demand, Kuwait hopes to increase domestic output to more than20bcm by 2020. Officials have also said they plan to raise oil production capacity to 4mn b/d by 2020from around 3.2mn b/d currently. However, we forecast production of oil and gas to rise more slowlythan officials anticipate, given Kuwait has long struggled to attract sufficient technical expertise frominternational oil companies (IOCs) due to opposition from domestic political interests.

- In January, Kuwait announced support for a deal between OPEC and non-OPEC producers to freezeoutput at current levels. However, progress towards coordinated energy policy will continue to beundermined by economic and political rivalries among key exporters. While any agreement could presenta source of downside risk to Kuwaiti oil production, it remains unclear whether such a deal will beimplemented.

- Kuwait said in February that it would raise output by 150,000b/d in Q316 as part of a push to increase itsrole in meeting export demand in Europe. Kuwait currently exports 500,000b/d to Europe on both spotand long-term contracts, but the country facing increasing competition there, and in Asia, from Iranfollowing the lifting of sanctions in January.
