GE OPENS AUSTRALIA
GE announced on March 6 its new oil and natural gas facility in Broome, Western Australia, is finished and operational. The location includes a custom-build workshop, a warehouse, office space and an equipment hardstand area.
The facility, which is designed to service subsea oil and gas projects, will support INPEX's Ichthys liquid natural gas project, according to GE's official press release.
The Ichthys field is located almost 137 miles off the coast of Western Australia, and is the largest discovery of hydrocarbon liquids in the country in the past four decades, according to INPEX. The project is currently in the development phase, where INPEX will create production facilities in the field, including commissioning and drilling production and injection wells. During this time, GE will provide preparation, storage and maintenance services for the the subsea equipment.
"The establishment of the Broome facility represents an exciting milestone for our business in Australia," said Mary Hackett, GE regional director for Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. "We are proud to be able to provide customers a solution that will mean better and more efficient operational and maintenance support for crucial offshore LNG development. It is great to deliver that excellence as part of the Broome community."

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.
