PETROVIETNAM'S REVENUE $11.3 BLN
According to NGA, PetroVietnam's revenue in the first seven months of 2016 was VND253 trillion ($11.3 billion).
Do Chi Thanh, company's deputy general director, said the group exploited 10.32 million tons of crude oil and 6.56 billion cubic metres of gas in the first seven months.
In July, it produced 1.41 million tons of crude oil and 910 million cubic metres of gas.
Price of crude oil in July fell by $3 per barrel to touch $47 against June, Thanh said, adding that the average price of the product in the first seven months dropped by $18 year-on-year to reach $41.5 per barrel.
"The group expects to achieve its targets in production and business for this year, despite the reduction in crude oil prices in the world market," Thanh as saying.

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.
