    400 km of "Turkish stream" will be constructed of pipes of Russian production

    Bulgaria expects to build a branch line of the "Turkish stream" in Serbia until the beginning of 2020.

    The contractor on the section of the pipeline will be a consortium led by Saudi company Arkad, but the pipe will be Russian.

    It looks like besides NEL pipeline that Russia increased gas through to bypass this OPEL pipeline nonsense, the resurrection of the south stream through Bulgaria and Serbia will be a huge benefit. Not only is it a branch of Turkstream, Turkey is very much interested in also pushing the gas from the turkstream into Europe thus due to Turkey's rather strong weight politically, the chances of Russia getting screwed from this one is nill.

    Nothing in writing. Remember 'promises' mean nothing in europolitik. Remember 'no eastern expansion of NATO'? Or 'The Euro ABM Meat-shield isn't directed towards Russia'? Two can play that game. There's no contract with Ukraine, and the current political environment makes it impossible to negotiate any further contracts with Ukraine, so expect the 'promise' to amount to nothing.

    Surgutneftegas commissions Lenskoye field in Yakutia


    For 15 years, a production infrastructure has been created in the region for the production and transportation of oil and oil products

    MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS /. Russia’s oil producer Surgutneftegas commissioned a new Lenskoye field with proven oil reserves of 40 mln tonnes, the company said in a press release published on Saturday.

    The new field was dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the East Siberian oil and gas province development. "Taking into account the Lenskoye field, the joint-stock company operates 7 fields and continues to actively develop the resource base in the region. The company conducts geological exploration at 26 licensed sites located in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Irkutsk Region and Krasnoyarsk Region," the press release said. According to the press release, Eastern Siberia is a strategically important area for Surgutneftegaz's activities. The region's share in the total oil production of the company in 2018 amounted to 15% or 9.1 mln tonnes.

    For 15 years, a production infrastructure has been created in the region for the production and transportation of oil and oil products. Moreover, the company built the Talakan airport. The annual investment in Eastern Siberia is over 22 bln rubles, and for 2019, the company has planned 25.5 billion rubles in investment.

    On August 28, Surgutneftegas registered the company Rion LLC, which, according to the SPARK system, will be involved in securities and investment management on the stock market. At the end of the first half of 2019, Surgutneftegas’ liquid assets amounted to 2.955 trillion rubles ($44 bln). On September 3, the capitalization of the company on the Moscow Exchange on September 3 reached 1.6 trillion rubles ($24 bln).

    Russia's Novatek sees enough gas for third big LNG plant: CEO



    TOKYO (Reuters) - Russia’s top private gas producer Novatek expects newly acquired licenses will give it enough resources for a third liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in its super-cooled gas cluster, CEO Leonid Mikhelson said.

    Novatek already has a Yamal LNG plant running at annual capacity of 16.5 million tonnes of super-cooled gas. It plans to start another project, Arctic LNG 2, in 2023.

    Arctic LNG 2, with planned annual capacity of 20 million tonnes of LNG, is located on the Gydan peninsula across the straight from the LNG plant on the Yamal peninsula.
    Novatek is looking to build more LNG facilities in the area as it aims to produce as much LNG as Qatar.

    Mikhelson, who is also a major Novatek shareholder, told reporters in Tokyo that in two years’ time, the three gas production licenses Novatek has on the Gydan peninsula would “give the necessary resource base for another LNG project of the size of Arctic LNG 2.” He did not give a timeframe for the project.

    Separately, Novatek said it has signed an agreement with Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and JBIC to implement projects to build marine LNG transhipment complexes in the Kamchatka and Murmansk regions of Russia.

    “The... transhipment complexes will help to optimize logistics and maximize the efficiency of LNG deliveries from Yamal and Gydan to LNG key markets of the Asia-Pacific region,” Mikhelson said in a statement.

    Yamal LNG capacity is expected to reach around 19 million tonnes a year after a fourth production line at the plant is launched by the end of this year. Novatek also operates a small-scale LNG plant with an annual capacity of under 1 million tonnes, which it plans to expand.

    A Chinese company working with Canada get sanctioned so it hurts 6 tankers.

    So what?

    There are so many ways around this. Renaming companies, transferring assets to another that isn't sanctioned, new contract with other non sanctioned vessels, leave the sanctioned vessels to transport only within Russia, etc.

    Putin May Meet With Exxon’s Chief Executive This Week



    Russia’s President Vladimir Putin may meet with the chief executive of U.S. oil supermajor ExxonMobil, Darren Woods, on the sidelines of an energy conference in Moscow this week, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, said on Tuesday.

    According to the spokesman for the Russian president, the Kremlin hopes that Putin could discuss energy issues with Woods on the sidelines of the forum on Wednesday.

    Woods, as well as BP’s chief executive Bob Dudley, are slated to speak at the ‘Russian energy week’ forum on Wednesday in a panel that will also include a speech from OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo.

    Ministers from OPEC countries, including Saudi Arabia’s new energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, will also take part in the conference.

    Putin plans to meet with OPEC’s Barkindo to discuss the cooperation between Russia and OPEC, including the production cut deal that has been in place since the beginning of 2017, Kremlin’s Peskov said last week, as carried by Russian media.

    The Russian president has also planned a short meeting with Exxon’s Woods to discuss prospects of potential projects with Exxon’s participation in Russia, local media reported on Friday.  

    Woods and BP’s Dudley will make the trip to Russia after the relations between the West and Moscow began to strain in 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea and incurred western sanctions on some of its oil companies and on buying western equipment for developing projects in the Arctic, for example.

    Following the U.S. sanctions on Russia, Exxon withdrew from most of its joint oil and gas exploration activities with Russia’s state-controlled oil giant Rosneft, giving in to the pressure of U.S. and EU sanctions against Russia’s energy industry. The decision, Exxon said in 2018, was made in 2017, after Washington imposed additional sanctions on Russia for its alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential elections.  

    BP, for its part, owns 19.75 percent in Rosneft and nominates two representatives to Rosneft’s Board of Directors: CEO Dudley and Guillermo Quintero, former BP President for Latin America.

    Putin had better demand a quid pro quo. No more BS sanctions from Congress-chimps in exchange for some regulated access to the Russian
    market. As long as Congress-chimps are flinging turds at Russia, no US company should have access to the Russian market.

    And what can US do. Force EU into submission and ban all gas trade between EU and Russia. It makes no sense for EU. Russia can live with it. Ban all means of transportation. Russia will build its own LNG carriers. Ban all pipeline. Lol Eu will freeze to death. Every situation can last for some time and none for all time. Russia is self sufficient country and if someone wants to ruin itself for the benefit of from its own perspective harming Russia, why would Russia go to war with such idea that is demented ?

    I think Russia even does not need to do anything to solve the Nord Steam project. Europeans greed will solve it by itself. They want it. Momentarily obstacles are I think of no reason of concern as can be observed with South Stream resurrected now in form of Turkish Stream and than you have hi end LNG projects major EU powers are paying to take part. It may take time to formulate an appropriate answer for every US subversion on EU soil still the arrow of change is obvious.
