ROSNEFT'S RESERVE REPLACEMENT: 124%
According to the results of the audit performed by DeGolyer & MacNaughton under the SEC (United States Securities and Exchange Commission) life-of-field classification, as of December 31, 2015, Rosneft proven hydrocarbon reserves stood at 34,465 mmboe (4,654 mmtoe). The Company's hydrocarbon reserves growth accounted 488 mmboe (59 mmtoe). Reserves growth was achieved notwithstanding a significant decrease of average benchmark crude oil prices. Rosneft's hydrocarbon reserve replacement ratio under the SEC classification amounted to 124% (the ratio is based on hydrocarbon metric units). Following 2015 Rosneft's hydrocarbon reserve life under the SEC classification totaled 19 years.
Under the PRMS (Petroleum Resources Management System) classification hydrocarbon reserves by the 1P category as of December 31, 2015 stood at 42,917 mmboe (5,808 mmtoe), by the 2P category – 76,171 mmboe (10,274 mmtoe), by the 3P category – 108,601 mmboe (14,683 mmtoe). Reserves growth by 3P category amounted to +2%.
Outstanding results and reserves growth were achieved due to the implementation of optimal new zones' development plans at operated fields, efficient efforts aimed at the enhanced recovery and significant achievements in the area of hard-to-recover reserves development in the Company's operating regions.
Operational excellence, coordinated teamwork, efficient reserves management in 2015 allowed the Company to successfully develop in concordance with its strategic goals and to confirm its leading positions among world publicly traded companies in terms of proven hydrocarbon reserves and hydrocarbon resources.

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.
