GAZPROM NEFT COST ESTIMATE RAISED TO $3 B
OAO Gazprom Neft increased its estimated costs for the Badra oil field in Iraq to about $3 billion, according to a bond prospectus this month from its parent company.
The Gazprom Neft-led group is planning to begin oil output at Badra this year and produce 170,000 barrels a day from the field by 2017. The Iraqi government is allowing the group to recoup initial investments, awarding a fee of $5.50 a barrel produced over the 20-year span of the contract.
Gazprom Neft is also investing in projects in Iraq’s Kurdistan region where it plans to start production this year.
