The market looks increasingly oversupplied in the near term with 62 Mt of additional supplies coming online between 2016 to 2018.

Supply risk remains in the form of start up delays especially for the Australian projects. For demand nuclear restarts changing energy policies as well as infrastructure constraints can adversely change our forecast.
