ROSNEFT GAS OPPORTUNITIES
Rosneft wants to step up gas production and become the second largest gas company in Russia.
'Over the past two years Rosneft has created a sizeable gas business to become a number three gas producer in Russia. It has tripled gas production, arranged its efficient marketing, and put together a competitive portfolio of gas projects. We see a good potential to become Russia's number two gas producer in the medium term' reads a note released on Tuesday.
The company said it is working to build a long-term supply chain, while keeping high level of production in established production areas and stepping up efforts to tap resources in East Siberia.
"In the next few years we are planning to maintain production and efficiently bring on stream more reserves in our traditional regions of operation (West Siberia, the Far East, the Volga-Urals region) as well as launching a number of new projects in East Siberia" Igor Sechin commented.
The company said it will also develop unconventional resources, mainly offshore and tight reserves. Rosneft estimates its offshore hydrocarbon resources at over 46 billion tons of oil equivalent.

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.
