Transcript

  • 1. The Impact of the Energy Sector on the Economy of Trinidad and Tobago An Investigation using Econometric Modelling Techniques Edward Bahaw June 30 th 2010
  • 2. Outline
    • Importance of the energy sector
    • Differences between crude oil and natural gas
    • Hydrocarbon Production & Price and GDP
    • Econometric Modelling
    • Results
  • 3. T&T Energy Statistics (2009)
    • Energy Exports - 87% of total exports
    • Energy taxes - 48% of total taxes
    • Energy GDP - 40% or total GDP
  • 4. Gross Domestic Product
    • Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – measure of the value of output in a country.
    • Increases in GDP – Economic Growth
    • Decreases in GDP – Recession
  • 5. GDP Time Series
  • 6. Impacts on GDP
    • Which energy sector variable has the biggest impact on GDP?
    • Natural gas price
    • Crude oil price
    • Natural gas production
    • Crude oil production
  • 7. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Prices
  • 8. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production
  • 9. Natural Gas Utilization (2009)
  • 10. Value Chains
    • Crude oil
    • Production and Export
    • Natural gas
    • Production and processing
    • Utilization as feedstock
    • Utilization as fuel
    • Export (Condensate, NGLs, LNG, Methanol, Ammonia, Iron and Steel, UAN etc.)
  • 11. Crude Oil Upstream Taxes
    • Revenue Based
    • Petroleum Levy – 3%
    • Supplementary Petroleum Tax – 35%
    • Green Fund Levy – 0.1%
    • Profit Based
    • Unemployment Levy – 5%
    • Petroleum Profit Tax – 50%
  • 12. Natural Gas Upstream Taxes
    • Revenue Based
    • Petroleum Levy – 3%
    • Supplementary Petroleum Tax – 0%
    • Green Fund Levy – 0.1%
    • Profit Based
    • Unemployment Levy – 5%
    • Petroleum Profit Tax – 50%
  • 13. Natural Gas Downstream Taxes
    • Revenue Based
    • None
    • Profit Based
    • Corporation Tax – 25%
  • 14. Natural Gas Production and GDP
  • 15. Crude Oil Production and GDP
  • 16. Natural Gas Price and GDP
  • 17. Crude Oil Price and GDP
  • 18. Correlation Coefficients Energy Parameter Correlation with GDP Crude Oil Price 0.83 Crude Oil Production 0.02 Natural Gas Price 0.56 Natural Gas Production 0.99
  • 19. Are Correlations sufficient?
    • The question - Which energy sector variable has the biggest impact on GDP?
    • Correlation does not imply causation
    • Then what?
    • Econometric Modelling tools!
  • 20. Econometric Modelling Tools
    • Cointegration Testing
    • Vector Autoregressive (VAR) Models
    • Variance Decompositions
    • Impulse Response Functions
  • 21. Econometric Modelling Tools
    • Empirical evidence of causation
    • Nobel Prize 2003 (R. Engle & C. Granger)
    • Utilized in many studies in other countries
    • Employed in this study using quarterly data from 2000 to 2009.
  • 22. Econometric Results
    • The results provide the following:
    • Significance of causal effects
    • Magnitude and directions of the causal effects
  • 23. Significant causal effect on GDP?
    • Natural gas production - Yes
    • Natural gas price - Yes
    • Crude oil production - No
    • Crude oil price - No
  • 24. Actual vs. Fitted GDP
  • 25. Actual vs. Fitted GDP
  • 26. Magnitude and Direction Energy Sector Variable Percentage Change in Energy Sector Variable Impact on GDP Natural Gas Production  10%  5% Natural Gas Price  10%  0.5%
  • 27. Outlook on Natural Gas Production
    • Proven reserves – 16.9 tcf
    • Production – 4.2bscf/d (2009)
    • R/P ratio – 11years (until 2020)
    • Decline curve analysis
  • 28. Outlook on Natural Gas Price
    • Expected lower price due to :
    • Increased LNG production and export globally
    • Shale-gas production in the US
  • 29. Suggestions?
