U.S. LNG FOR TURKEY
Turkey has for the first time imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the US in 2016, said the message from Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA).
The country has imported 83 million cubic meters of LNG, which accounts for 7.15 percent of the country's LNG consumption.
Turkey imported 437 million cubic meters of liquefied natural gas from Qatar, 468 million cubic meters - from Algeria and 171 million cubic meters - from Nigeria in the first quarter of 2016, according to EMRA's message.
Ankara has agreements with Algeria and Nigeria for supplying 4.4 billion and 1.2 billion cubic meters of liquefied natural gas per year, respectively.
Turkey also imports 6.6 billion cubic meters of gas from Azerbaijan per year based on the take or pay contract.
Moreover, Turkey imports gas from Russia which undertakes to supply 20 billion cubic meters of gas to this country per year based on the two contracts signed between them.
The first contract for exporting 16 billion cubic meters of Russian gas to Turkey was signed in 1997, while the second contract for delivering 4 billion cubic meters per year was inked in 1998.

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.
