Pakistan's economy expanded 4.2% in 2016, foreign investment has continued to grow -- attracted by the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project -- and improvements in the country's security front, following the government's efforts to combat terrorism, have also led to economic gains and additional investment.
Trade between the countries fell overall last year as oil prices dropped. Japan's 2.1 trillion yen ($18.6 billion) in imports from Saudi Arabia in 2016, mostly oil and gas, dwarfed its exports of 546.3 billion yen ($4.8 billion).
Rising oil production in the US, which Russia's energy ministry forecasts to grow by 400,000 b/d year on year in 2017, is being monitored, but it should not be considered separate from the global supply and demand balance, he said.
The deeply troubled power industry accounts for almost one-tenth of all bank loans in India, and thus poses a threat to already weakened lenders, according to data from Morgan Stanley. What is more, like so many other industries, the power business is facing significant technological challenges as the cost of solar energy continues falling.
A significant, years-long oil supply crunch may be approaching due to insufficient investment in exploration and production, Hess CEO John Hess said Monday at IHS CERAWeek.
Shell will sell to a subsidiary of Canadian Natural Resources Limited (“Canadian Natural”) its entire 60 percent interest in AOSP, its 100 percent interest in the Peace River Complex in-situ assets, including Carmon Creek, and a number of undeveloped oil sands leases in Alberta, Canada. The consideration to Shell from Canadian Natural is approximately $8.5 billion (C$11.1 billion), comprised of $5.4 billion in cash plus around 98 million Canadian Natural shares currently valued at $3.1 billion. Canadian Natural is one of Canada’s largest energy companies and a leader in the oil sands, with a market capitalisation of approximately $35 billion (C$46 billion). Separately and under the second agreement, Shell and Canadian Natural will jointly acquire and own equally Marathon Oil Canada Corporation (“MOCC”), which holds a 20 percent interest in AOSP, from an affiliate of Marathon Oil Corporation for $1.25 billion each, to be settled in cash. The combination of these transactions will result in a net consideration of $7.25 billion to Shell.
Министр поблагодарил своего саудовского коллегу за усилия по достижению успеха соглашения между странами ОПЕК и ведущими не-ОПЕКовскими производителями нефти по координации действий на нефтяном рынке. «Хотел бы еще раз поблагодарить в Вашем лице руководство Саудовской Аравии за решающий вклад в продвижение столь важного для мировой нефтяной индустрии и мировой экономики в целом процесса, способствующего восстановлению баланса спроса и предложения на рынке нефти и поддержанию инвестиционной привлекательности отрасли в долгосрочной перспективе», - заявил Александр Новак.
«Изменения топливно-энергетического баланса неизбежны, однако резких потрясений в ближайшие десятилетия мы не ждем – доля углеводородов может снизиться с 80% до 75%, при этом газ останется основным видом топлива и займет еще большую нишу. Таким образом, изменения мирового топливного баланса будут носить скорее эволюционный, а не революционный характер», - констатировал Александр Новак.
The Norwegian economy is slowly picking up after a two-year slowdown in its top industry, oil production, due to a halving of crude prices since mid-2014. In recent months, crude prices have risen and stabilised at around $55 per barrel.
