AZERBAIJAN GAS UP 6%
Azerbaijan's commercial gas production increased by 6.2 percent in 10 month of 2015, compared to the same period in last year, the State Statistical Committee of Azerbaijan reported on November 17.
The report says that the country produced 16.392 billion cubic meters (bcm) of commercial gas over 10 months.
However, when considering flared and recycled gas, the country's total gas production stood at 24.546 bcm from January to October, about 2.7 percent less than the same 10 month period in 2014.
Regarding commercial gas, the country produced 1.967 bcm in October, about 393.5 million cubic meters (mcm) more than September. In other words, Azerbaijan's gas production increased by 12.66 mcm per day during last month, compared to the previous month.
An official at the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (Socar) told Natural Gas Europe on the condition of anonymity that currently about 28.8 mcm/d of Azerbaijani gas is produced from Shah Deniz Stage 1 and 8.5 mcm/d is associated gas from Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli oil fields. All of these fields are operated by BP.
"Socar and other operative companies produced 15.6 mcm/d of gas (excluding Shah Deniz) during October. Azerbaijan's total commercial gas production in this month reached 52.87 mcm/d", he said.
It is expected that the country's gas production will increase over winter 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.
