GAZPROM: MORE LNG
The Gazprom Board of Directors took notice of the information regarding the implementation of the strategy for production and supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Among the crucial factors determining the current status of the LNG market were highlighted the following: further growth of demand at promising markets of China, India and Southeastern Asia as well as the emergence of new LNG importers.
Gazprom goes on developing LNG sales from its portfolio. Over the first 6 months of 2015 it sold 22 LNG cargoes with the total volume exceeding 1.5 million tons, thus showing a 17 per cent increase as compared to the same period of the previous year. This is equivalent to the total LNG sales in 2013. Gazprom has increased the number of deals, thanks to a rise in LNG volumes being purchased through the settled contracts, as well as to spot and swap deals. The Company is active in LNG sales, including urgent LNG shipments, and supplies to the new markets of the Middle East, Latin America and Southeast Asia.
With a view to expand its own LNG production, the Company is implementing the project for constructing the third process train within Sakhalin II (up to 5.4 million tons per year) as well as the Baltic LNG project (10 million tons per year).
Gazprom also aims to market additional gas volumes via low-tonnage LNG supplies. To achieve the target, Gazprom builds up its production capacities and expands the network of low-tonnage LNG facilities.

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.
