ROSNEFT & STATOIL DRILLING
Rosneft and Statoil ASA completed drilling works as part of the Pilot Project at the PK1 layer of the North-Komsomolskoye field. During 2015 the companies jointly drilled 2 horizontal exploitation wells.
Using best global practices Rosneft and Statoil ASA implemented extended logging, including core and fluid samplings. Also, for the first time onshore in Russia, a well was completed using "openhole gravel packing" in a horizontal section of 1,000 m.
Rosneft and Statoil plan to hold wells testing and determine further prospects and methods of PK1 layer development based on the testing results.
Implementation of the Project may allow effective development of about 600 mln tons of geological oil in place at the North-Komsomolskoye field in the short term.
Commenting on the drilling completion, Igor Sechin said: "Creation of partnerships for technologically complex projects' development is one of the strategic dimensions of the Company's evolvement. The pilot drilling at the North-Komsomolskoye field opens a new stage of the joint work of Rosneft and Statoil. The companies are working actively and continue developing the long-term cooperation."
North-Komsomolskoye oil and gas condensate field is located in Purovsky and Nadymsky regions of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. It has complex geology associated with an oil rim of highly viscous oil, as well as an extensive gas cap.
On May 23, 2013, Rosneft and Statoil ASA signed the North-Komsomolskoye Cooperation Agreement related to difficult-to-extract resources of hydrocarbons.

PLATTS - Renewables' share in Germany's power mix is set to reach 38% this year, ahead of the government's 2020 target of 35% but below-trajectory for 2030's 65% target, utility lobby group BDEW said Thursday.
EBRD - the Bank will no longer finance thermal coal mining or coal-fired electricity generation. The Bank will also stop funding any upstream oil exploration, and will not finance upstream oil development projects except in rare and exceptional circumstances, where such investments reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
IMF - The Malaysian economy has shown resilience. Real GDP growth is projected at 4.7 percent for 2018, underpinned by domestic demand.
IMF - Bolivia's real GDP growth is projected at 4.5 percent in 2018, one of the highest rates in the region. Growth is supported by continued accommodative policies, a second economy-wide wage bonus, and strong agriculture output.
