IRAN - INDONESIA COOPERATION
NGA wrote, ground is ready for greater cooperation between Iran and Indonesia in oil, gas and petrochemicals sectors, President and CEO of Indonesian state-owned oil and natural gas corporation Pertamina Dwi Soetiipto said on Monday.
He spoke to reporters after signing a cooperation document with Iran's National Iranian Oil Company, Iran energy information agency Shana reported.
Indonesia is looking to increase imports of LPG, petrochemical products and crude oil from Iran in the near future. Earlier this year, Indonesia inked a deal to buy LPG from Iran.
Removal of sanctions, improvement of cooperation between Tehran and the world and Iran's decision to increase oil and gas output have provided lots of opportunities for increased cooperation, Pertamina president added.
Pertamina is also keen on investing in Iranian infrastructure projects including refineries, he said.
National Iranian Oil Company and Pertamina signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Monday under which latter will carry out studies of two Iranian oil fields, Abteimour and Mansouri.

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.
