SAUDI ARAMCO LETS
Saudi Aramco has let a contract to Tecnicas Reunidas (TR) for the utilities and common-area project within the Jazan IGCC (integrated gasification combined-cycle) power plant in conjunction with a 400,000-b/d refinery under development at Jazan Economic City, Saudi Arabia.
Under the lump-sum turnkey contract, TR will develop the utilities and offsite installations for the IGCC complex, providing services for engineering, procurement, construction, precommissioning, and commissioning support for plant, TR said in a recent release.
The Jazan IGCC complex's gasification unit will have a capacity to convert vacuum residue produced in the adjacent Jazan refinery into 2.11 million normal cu m/hr of syngas that will be evenly used to produce purified hydrogen for the refinery and to fuel the IGCC plant, according to TR.
TR said the IGCC plant will be operational in 2017.

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.
