The Hungarian government has struck an agreement with the Russian state-run gas giant Gazprom to buy and store its 2020 gas supplies earlier than usual to offset the risk of Russia failing to agree gas transit terms with Ukraine. Besides, Hungary expanded its domestic gas storage capacity from 5.6 bcm to 6.3 bcm to guarantee safe supply through 2020. In 2018, Hungary increased its gas imports from Gazprom by 9.3%, to a total of 7.6 bcm; according to preliminary data unveiled by Gazprom, gas supplies continued to grow in early 2019 (+12% over the 1 January-20 March period).
According to preliminary annual data released by the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), domestic nuclear power generation slightly increased in 2018 (+0.3%) and reached a total of 807 TWh in 2018, i.e. above the previous 2010 record. This result was achieved thanks to a combination of added capacity through uprates (only one 1.2 GW nuclear plant was commissioned between 2010 and 2018, while uprates added 2 GW of capacity) and shorter refueling and maintenance cycles, in spite of the shutdown of several nuclear power plants since 2010 (seven closures for a total capacity of 5.3 GW).
Malaysian state-run oil and gas company Petronas (Petroliam Nasional Berhad) has signed a binding heads of agreement with the Vietnamese state-owned oil and gas company Petrovietnam (PVN group) for the sales and purchase of additional gas volumes from Malaysia to Vietnam. Petronas will ship natural gas from its Malaysian operations to the Vietnamese province of Ca Mau in the Mekong delta, where a gas, 1.5 GW gas-fired power plant and fertiliser plant complex is operating (since 2008 for the CCGT power plant). The complex currently uses 2.2 bcm/year of gas from the offshore Block PM3CAA on the border with Malaysia. However, Petrovietnam expects to face a 1 bcm/year gas shortage soon, requiring additional gas imports.
Brazilian state-held oil and gas company Petrobras has started hydrocarbon production from P-77, the fourth platform to be put into production in the Buzios field in the pre-salt of Santos Basin offshore Brazil (approximately 210 km off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro) in 2019. P-77 is a floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO) with the capacity to process up to 150,000 bbl/d of oil and to compress up to 6 mcm/d of natural gas. The deployment of the unit will increase Petrobras' production, in line with its 2018-2022 Business and Management Plan.
