UKRAINE'S GAS INVESTMENT UP TO 46%
УКРТРАНСГАЗ - According to Ukrtransgaz' performance results in the first nine months of 2017, capital investments in Ukraine's gas transmission facilities increased by 46% or UAH 486 million compared to the same period of 2016, Ukrtransgaz public and media relations department reports.
In the first three quarters of 2017, Ukrtransgaz invested UAH 3.1 billion in the modernization and maintenance of Ukraine's GTS, including UAH 1540 million under the capital investment plan, UAH 789 million within the repair and maintenance program and UAH 743 million within the procurement program.
The works performed in July-September 2017 (Q3) under the capital investment plan made up UAH 350 million. The most expensive capital investment projects in this period included the following: the reconstruction of the fuel, start and impulse gas treatment unit of Bilche-Volytsia booster compressor station (Lviv region); the overhaul of a 27 km section of Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhhorod trunk transit pipeline; the reconstruction of the gas dehydration unit and the process automation at Chervonopartyzanske underground storage facility in Chernihiv region; and the reconstruction of the electricity supply system of the gas air cooler at Uzhhorod compressor station. Ukrtransgaz also overhauled gas flow meters at a number of gas distribution stations across the system.
The significant increase in funding of the GTS modernization and maintenance over the past two years ensures the secure use of Ukrtransgaz' gas transmission infrastructure over following decades as well as uninterrupted gas transmission to both European and Ukrainian consumers.

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.
