ROSNEFT & GE LNG
Itera, a 100% Rosneft subsidiary, and General Electric signed an agreement of intent regarding natural gas processing cooperation at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
The parties agreed to evaluate opportunities for potential cooperation on natural gas processing using GE technology for low-tonnage liquefied natural gas (LNG) production.
In particular, the agreement covers analysis of opportunities to cooperate on establishing LNG production at Bratskecogas assets, as well as potential joint work on deploying GE technology and equipment to boost the company's efficiency and production capacity.
The development of infrastructure aimed at LNG production will open additional monetization channels for Rosneft's significant gas reserves and will enable increased efficiency for Itera Oil and Gas Company consolidated assets.
Chairman of Rosneft Management Board Igor Sechin said after signing: "Gas business is one of the priority dimensions of the Company's business; Rosneft has tripled its gas production in the last two years and we are glad to develop gas processing with such technologically advanced partner as GE".
Commenting on the agreement signing, Ron Pollett, President & CEO GE Russia/CIS, noted, "GE's high-tech solutions create opportunities for enhancing productivity and contributing to our partners' business development. Since 2004, GE has designed, manufactured, delivered, and launched more than 140 cryogenic modules globally, including 11 units for the production of LNG and 130 to liquefy carbon dioxide gas. We are confident that our cooperation with Itera on gas monetization will contribute to the modernization of the Russian oil & gas industry."
ITERA Oil and Gas Company is one of the largest independent producers and marketers of natural gas in Russia. The company has been developing its own gas production in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District since 1998. ITERA was the first private company to commission its gas fields in the North of Russia. Rosneft consolidated Itera in July 2013.
GE has been working in Russia for nearly 100 years, bringing global expertise and localizing advanced technology with our strategic partners across power, oil & gas, transportation, and healthcare to solve some of the region's biggest infrastructure challenges and improve people's lives. Over 1,500 GE employees are working in Russia/CIS, with regional headquarters in Moscow.

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.
