LITHUANIA VS GAZPROM: REJECTED
June 22, 2016, 19:25. The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) today rejected all claims made by Lithuania with respect to the terms of purchasing Russian natural gas, including the EUR 1.5 billion claim against Gazprom.
In its ruling, the SCC rejected all of Lithuania's allegations of unfair prices for gas supplied by Gazprom in the period from 2006 through 2015 to Lietuvos Dujos, the Lithuanian-based company that used to have Gazprom and Lithuania as its shareholders.
The SCC ruling is final and not subject to appeal.
Earlier, rulings in favor of Gazprom on other disputes between the Company and Lithuania were made by the SCC, a number of Lithuanian courts, and the European Court of Justice. In addition, Gazprom successfully divested its stake in Lietuvos Dujos.

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.
