IRANIAN EXPORTS TO RUSSIA
SHANA - Iran will begin exporting 100,000b/d of crude oil to Russia within the next two week, Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh said.
Following a meeting with his Russian counterpart here in Tehran on Tuesday evening, the official said Iran will begin shipments to Russia after signature of a deal for export of 100,000b/d of crude.
"Tehran and Moscow will sign a deal for export of Iran's crude oil to Russia in the near future," Zangeneh told reporters after the meeting.
He said Russia will pay 50% of the cash for Iran's crude oil at pre-determined deadlines and will settle the rest by supplying Russian goods to Iran.
The official also underlined Russia's constructive role in the historical deal struck between OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers.
Russia has committed itself to curb 300,000b/d of its crude oil output to join the deal.

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.
