ONGC APPROVES $5 BLN
The board of India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. approved a $5-billion offshore oil and natural gas development plan for the Krishna-Godavari basin off the country's east coast.
ONGC plans 35 wells in Clusters 2A and 2B on deepwater block KG-DWN-98/2. Twelve of the wells will be used for water injection.
First gas is expected by June 2019 and first oil by March 2020. ONGC expects a peak production rate in Cluster 2A of 77,305 b/d and 3.81 million cu m/day of associated gas through 15 producers. In Cluster 2B, peak gas production is expected to be 12.75 million cu m/day from eight wells.
The plan includes a gas processing platform with bridge-connected living quarters; a floating production, storage, and offloading vessel; about 430 km of subsea pipelines; and an onshore gas terminal.

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.
