GAZPROM & SERBIA STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP
The Gazprom headquarters hosted a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Slavenko Terzic, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Serbia to the Russian Federation.
The parties noted the strategic nature of their partnership in the energy sector and named, in particular, the cooperation in the gas supply, underground gas storage, oil refining and electric power generating sectors.
Special focus was placed on ensuring reliable gas supplies to Serbia this winter. It was noted that productive interaction within the domestic UGS sector was a prerequisite for having a comfortable heating season in Serbia. Before this winter period, Gazprom fully loaded the Banatski Dvor UGS facility with the maximum working gas capacity of 450 million cubic meters. The gas storage guarantees reliable gas supplies from Russia not only to Serbia, but also to Hungary and Bosnia & Herzegovina.
In 2013 the long-term Contract was signed to annually supply up to 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas for a period of 10 years from Russia to Serbia. Gazprom delivered approximately two billion cubic meters of gas to Serbia in 2013.
The Banatski Dvor UGS facility – one of the largest gas storages in Southeastern Europe – was put onstream in 2011. Its working gas capacity makes up 450 million cubic meters and maximum daily deliverability – 5 million cubic meters.

AN - China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) is willing to invest $3 billion in its existing oil and gas operation in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Sunday following a meeting with the Chinese in Abuja.
REUTERS - Production at Libya’s giant Sharara oil field was expected to fall by at least 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after two staff were abducted in an attack by an unknown group, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.
IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.
IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
