THE NEW U.S. NUCLEAR

PLATTS - The US nuclear power fleet produced more electricity in 2018 than ever before and its generation costs have declined significantly in recent years, but action must be taken to ensure more plants are not forced to shut for economic reasons, the head of the nuclear industry's trade group said Tuesday.

"Last year was a great year for nuclear," Maria Korsnick, president and CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute, said in her remarks at NEI's annual briefing on the state of the industry in Washington.

U.S. NUCLEAR WILL DOWN
Electricity generation from U.S. nuclear power plants totaled 807.1 million megawatthours (MWh) in 2018, slightly more than the previous peak of 807.0 million MWh in 2010, based on preliminary annual data. Although several nuclear power plants have closed since 2010, a combination of added capacity through uprates and shorter refueling and maintenance cycles allowed the remaining nuclear power plants to produce more electricity. In the near future, however, EIA expects that U.S. nuclear power output will decline.

OIL DEMAND GROWTH 1.2 - 1.4 MBD
The OECD sees global GDP growth rebounding to 3.4% in 2020, assuming that trade disputes are resolved and confidence rebuilds. This suggests that global oil demand growth will have scope to recover from 1.2 mb/d in 2019 to 1.4 mb/d in 2020.

ENERGY SECURITY COOPERATION
"Today about 18 million barrels of oil on a daily basis flows through this choke point coming from Saudi Arabia, emirates and other countries to China, Japan, India and other Asian customers." "But at the same time it is a major route for LNG, liquefied natural gas. About 30% of LNG goes through this strait, coming again to Japan, South Korea, and other Asian countries."
