IRAN WANTS 4 MBD
SHANA wrote, Managing director of National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) Ali Kardor said Iran will not cease to achieve the targeted crude oil output of 4 million barrels per day.
Speaking in a meeting with a number of commanders on Monday, Kardor said Iran has been able to retain its production quota in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
However, he said, Iran's rivals in the market are rapidly raising their output which mean Iran should also make every move to increase withdrawal from its underground reserves.
He said the NIOC is pretty active in upstream activities, saying the company will make every effort to serve the interests of the Islamic establishment and the economy of resistance.
Kardor said Iran's crude oil production capacity must reach 5.2 to 5.7 mbd in the future.
He further underlined Qatar's production of 350,000 barrels of oil from the South Pars oil layer, saying Iran is yet to recover any crude from the layer.

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.
