RUSSIA & CHINA PARTNERSHIP
The Gazprom headquarters hosted a working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Li Hui, Chinese Ambassador to Russia.
The parties addressed the issues of further bilateral cooperation. The progress with the project for supplying Russian pipeline gas to China via the eastern route was positively evaluated. It was pointed out that the project was carried on according to the deadline.
The meeting also mentioned the formulation of the Purchase and Sale Agreement for Russian gas supply via the western route.
The meeting participants stressed that the departing year was seminal for the Russian-Chinese relations in the energy sector and expressed their confidence that the partnership would keep on gaining momentum.
On May 21, 2014 Gazprom and CNPC signed the largest Purchase and Sale Agreement in the history stipulating Russian pipeline gas supply via the eastern route. The 30-year contract provides for gas supplies to China in the amount of 38 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
The eastern route stipulates the delivery of Russian natural gas from the Irkutsk and Yakutia gas production centers to China via the Power of Siberia gas trunkline.
On November 9, 2014 Gazprom and CNPC signed a Framework Agreement for Russian natural gas supply to China via the western route.
The western route stipulates annual gas supply in the amount of 30 billion cubic meters from Western Siberia to China via the Altai gas pipeline during 30 years.

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.
