GAZPROM UP TO 31.2%
In 2015, Gazprom increased market share in Europe and Turkey by one percentage point, from 30.2% to 31.2%, according to calculations, reported Interfax.
While available statistics from the International energy Agency (IEA) on consumption in these markets during the first 9 months of 2015, Interfax Global Energy analysts say that in the fourth quarter of 2015, gas consumption in Europe will grow by 4% and Turkey 1%. This corresponds to a consumption of the overall market "Europe+Turkey" for the year 2015 in 522,8 billion cubic meters, which is 4.5% more than in 2014 (500,5 billion cubic meters).
According to preliminary calculations, which are consistent with the estimates of management at Gazprom, in the current year exports abroad will be 159.3 billion cubic meters (including in December – 15.4 billion cubic meters plus 33% by December 2014).
To this figure must be added the figure of 3.9 billion cubic meters deliveries to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia (are members of the EU, but export statistics are "near abroad"), total 163.2 billion cubic meters And this corresponds to 31.2% of 522,8 billion cubic meters.
At the end of 2012, the share of Gazprom on the European market and Turkey was at the level of 25.4%, in 2013 – a 29.9%.

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.
