RWE STARTS UKRAINE
RWE AG, via its trading and gas midstream arm RWE Supply & Trading, is the first European supplier to commence gas deliveries to the Ukraine in 2014. Today, RWE re-starts deliveries to the state-owned company "Naftogaz of Ukraine" with gas from its pan-European portfolio.
The gas flows via Poland to Ukraine. These supplies are governed by the existing 5 year framework agreement between Naftogaz and RWE Supply & Trading signed in May 2012, which foresees deliveries of up to 10 billion cubic meter (bcm) of natural gas per year subject to individually agreed contracts.
In 2013, RWE Supply & Trading has already delivered about 1 bcm to Naftogaz. RWE's deliveries to the Ukraine are based on European wholesale price levels including delivery costs to the Ukraine. RWE believes that further significant volumes could be delivered to Ukraine if various transport restrictions at the Slovakian/Ukrainian border are politically and technically resolved within the next weeks or months.

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.
