ROSNEFT HAS STARTED WORKS
Rosneft has started field works at five license blocks of the Barents and Pechora Seas: East Prinovozemelsky, located in the North-Eastern part of the Barents sea near the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, Perseevsky, located in the North-Western part of the Barents sea, and at the South Russky, South Prinovozemelsky and West Matveevsky license blocks, located in the Pechora Sea.
Seismic work will be performed by a specialized research vessel simultaneously with the shipboard gravi magnetometric survey. All work will be performed in three seismic parties.
The seismic survey is a reliable method of exploration of the geological structure of the subsurface and because of high resolution allows establishing a geological model of the studied areas with a high accuracy, increasing the probability of correct assessment of their oil and gas potential.
In addition, complex engineering surveys with the purpose of obtaining information about engineering-geological and engineering-ecological conditions of the sites for two projectable outposts is planned. Drilling is planned for 2016 and 2017.
Rosneft carries out the Geological Exploration Program in the Barents and Pechora seas in strict accordance with the requirements of environmental legislation of the Russian Federation and license agreements. At seismic surveys' and integrated engineering surveys' run-time the Program of Ecological Monitoring and Production Control will be implemented. Previously public discussions were conducted; all necessary permissions and approvals of the state bodies were obtained, compensation measures of the potential damage were developed.

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.
