The key trends and developments in Slovakia's oil and gas sector are:
- Slovakia is almost entirely dependent on Russian oil and gas imports for its domestic consumption, with a total hydrocarbon import bill expected to come in at 5.65USD in 2014. There is little prospect for an increase in oil or gas production increase.
- While we expect the 130,000b/d Bratislava refinery will continue to run at high utilisation rates, downside risk to refined fuels production exists, given the difficult context for European refiners as a whole. The country will remain a small net refined fuels exporter throughout our forecast period.
- While oil consumption will increase slightly, gas consumption will stall, with downside risk if further gas-fired power generating capacity is shut. E.ON said it would mothball its combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) in Mal?enice, Slovakia, effective October 2013
- The European Commission unveiled a EUR5.85bn funding push to diversify gas and power infrastructure...

Slovakia has above-average energy import dependency with high overall energy intensity compared with the regional average. The country remains dependent on Russia , but a recently announced EUR5.9bn EU infrastructure programme aims to allow for more flexibility when negotiating gas purchases and may boost supply.
