Latvia downstream oil long-term outlook

Report summary

Latvia suffered from three years of consecutive economic contraction before returning to positive growth since 2011. The recovering economy provided a boost to commercial activity and increased transport fuel demand, but over the longer term we expect oil demand to gradually decline, driven by fuel efficiency gains. With no domestic refining capacity, oil demand is satisfied entirely by imports, sourced mostly from Finland and Lithuania. Although there is good access to independent storage and distribution infrastructure, the Latvian retail fuel market is dominated by three companies: Neste Oil, Circle K and Viada - which acquired LUKOIL's network in 2016.
