MSI cooperated with Xinde Marine News, Wang Jianjun, Regional Director, Asia; together with PCTC Director, Mr. Niklas Carlen; Senior Gas Shipping Market Analyst, Mr. Andrew Buckland; and Offshore Energy Market Analyst Mr. Joshua Belo-Osagie will share the outlook of these three ship markets' outlooks.


With the improved environmental protection, many countries plan to phase out traditional internal combustion engine vehicles around 2030. The new car battery capacity and automobile charging time are also developing rapidly. The latest electric vehicle technology has evolved, where a car can travel 1,000 kilometers after only 15 minutes of charging. At the same time, countries have also increased their investment in charging equipment. A combination of factors accelerates the transition from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles. Compared with traditional internal combustion engine car factories' scattered distribution, electric vehicle manufacturers are relatively more concentrated, resulting in increased demand for trans-oceanic electric vehicle transportation. It is bringing unprecedented opportunities and challenges to the PCTC market.


The Russian-Ukrainian war may affect many countries' energy security plans for a long time. Decarbonization is a long-term goal, but it needs to be done while ensuring energy security. Governments have begun to re-emphasize the multi-energy structure to avoid excessive energy concentration. Countries are increasing the search for developing mature, cheap, sufficient, and sustainable green energy while maintaining the secure supply of traditional energy and increasing energy reserves, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. Affected by this, the demand and price of natural gas, oil, and coal have increased significantly. At the same time, due to the sanctions imposed on Russia by Europe and the United States, the original international single energy market has been divided into two markets, and the market's effectiveness has been reduced, further driving up prices. LNGs are also split into two markets, exacerbating the imbalance between supply and demand. The LNG that Europe originally imported from Russia now needs to be imported from the United States, the Middle East, or Australia. The new transportation route is changing LNG ships' supply and demand balance. At the same time, countries want to expand their LNG reserves, but the investment in fixed storage equipment is enormous. And the time is relatively long. Most countries can only solve the shortage of reserves by chartering LNG ships, which further increases the imbalance between supply and demand in the market.


Rising oil prices and energy security are currently essential factors driving the recovery of the offshore market. At present, most offshore ships mainly serve offshore oil, and offshore oil investment is primarily affected by oil prices. Influenced by the Russian-Ukrainian war, the oil market is divided into international and Russian markets. Most offshore oil is in the international market, and some of the sanctioned Russian oil needs to be compensated by offshore oil. Depending on the region, the offshore oil breakeven is about $20-40 per barrel. The oil price is currently stable at 80-90 US dollars per barrel. There may be about 40-70 US dollars of margin per barrel of offshore oil at this price. The return on investment is considerable if it lasts for a long time. The market generally believes that the Russian-Ukrainian war may last for a long time, and the oil price may be at a high level for a long time. In addition, from the perspective of energy security, the Russian-Ukrainian war has caused many countries to re-invest in offshore oil, reduce oil imports, or increase the development of offshore wind power or other marine energy to ensure their energy security. The offshore market is ushering in an opportunity for rapid recovery.
