Stefano Cao, Saipem CEO, commented:
"Despite the persistence of a challenging market context, Saipem's performance in the first nine months of 2017 was solid from both an operational and management point of view, enabling the Company to confirm the guidance for 2017. The third quarter saw a downward trend in net debt, a good performance in terms of contract awards in line with the expectations announced with the half-year results, and the full achievement of objectives set by the new Fit for the Future Programme. The presentation of the new name and logo of our conceptual engineering division, "XSIGHT by Saipem", means that the new Company organization has become fully operational, setting clear targets for improving efficiency and effectiveness".

U.S. EIA - Venezuela holds the largest oil reserves in the world, in large part because of the heavy oil reserves in the Orinoco Oil Basin. In addition to oil reserves, Venezuela has sizeable natural gas reserves, although the development of natural gas lags significantly behind that of oil. However, in the wake of political and economic instability in the country, crude oil production has dramatically decreased, reaching a multi-decades low in mid-2018.
U.S. BEA - The U.S. current-account deficit increased to $124.1 billion (preliminary) in the first quarter of 2018 from $116.1 billion (revised) in the fourth quarter of 2017, according to statistics released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The deficit was 2.5 percent of current-dollar gross domestic product (GDP) in the first quarter, up from 2.4 percent in the fourth quarter.
WNN - There are 126 operational power reactors in 14 EU Member States, providing more than one-quarter of the bloc's total electricity production. In its Communication on the Nuclear Illustrative Program (PINC) published last year, the European Commission expects nuclear to maintain its significant role in Europe's energy mix up to 2050. This would require investment of some EUR40-50 billion (USD46-58 billion) in nuclear LTO by 2050.
