JAPAN'S INVESTMENT DOWN BY 40%

JAPAN'S INVESTMENT DOWN BY 40%

Investment by big Japanese firms in upstream oil and gas developments is set to fall by around 40 percent to about 1.2 trillion yen ($11 billion) in 2016/17 due to current low prices, a government Energy White Paper showed on Tuesday.

The upstream investments by 10 firms including Inpex Corp, JX Holdings, Mitsubishi Corp and Mitsui & Co had already slipped from 2.1 trillion yen in 2014/15 to 1.9 trillion yen in the year ended in March, the trade ministry said.

The other firms surveyed are Japan Petroleum Exploration (Japex), Cosmo Energy Holdings, Idemitsu Kosan, Itochu Corp, Marubeni Corp and Sumitomo Corp.

Globally, top oil companies have struggled to cope with a roughly 55 percent decline in oil prices since their 2014 peak, triggering a wave of spending cuts on new wells and projects to conserve cash.

International Energy Agency (IEA) Executive Director Fatih Birol said last month that global upstream investment fell by 24 percent in 2015 and is set to fall by 18 percent in 2016.

This would be the first time that the upstream investment has fallen for a second straight year since the 1980s, he said.

Birol said annual global upstream investment needs to be at about $630 billion a year to compensate for declining output at existing fields and maintain current production levels.

BAHRAIN'S GDP UP 3.2%

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.

NIGERIA'S GDP UP 2%

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.
