IC - Norway’s $1T wealth fund to reduce energy stock holdings - March 2019
Norway’s $1 trillion Government Pension Fund Global, the country’s sovereign wealth fund fed by oil revenue, intends to divest certain holdings in E&P companies, reducing its overall $37 billion in oil and gas shares by about 20%. The government’s report, which is the product of a yearlong study, presented the move as a way to derisk the fund from crude prices. The shift fell far short of environmentalist demands that the fund completely exit energy stocks. The fund, the richest of its...

IC - Citgo seeking $1.2B loan to continue operations - March 2019
Citgo Petroleum Corp. is shopping a $1.2 billion loan for working capital as US sanctions bear down on parent company PDVSA. The Venezuelan NOC could possibly default on an upcoming $70 million interest payment on its 2020 notes, for which it used 50.1% of Citgo as collateral. The Houston-based refining company engaged Houlihan Lokey to help refinance its credit lines that come due this year, according to Bloomberg. The deal launched midMarch and is expected to close March 22, according...

IC - Lukoil working out $600MM debt with Uzbek gas firms - March 2019
Two of the projects Lukoil runs in Uzbekistan are owed about $600 million by gas transport companies in the country. In turn, the Russian independent integrated company is rescheduling debt payments and will make a provision for a discount on future sales, according to VP Azat Shamsuarov. The deficit stems from an agreement Lukoil had made to deliver gas from the two fields—Kandym and Gissar— to Uzbek distributors, though the company has the right to export all of its share...

IC - UK capex to rise this year before resuming downward slide - March 2019
After four years of falling aggregate oil and gas capital expenditure in the UK, the country’s Oil and Gas Authority forecasts a 4% increase in capital spending this year. Last year’s £5.01 billion in spending, down from over £12 billion in 2015, will rise to £5.2 billion this year, but the growth will not portend a trend: The OGA expects capex to fall below 2018 levels in 2020 to £5 billion, then drop off sharply to £2.55 billion by 2024. Exploration and appraisal spending will peak this year...

ONGC declined, saying it does not have the available cash...

The US has asked India to stop buying Venezuelan crude as a means to help dry up cash flow for the current regime led by Nicolas Maduro, who obtained a second term as the country’s president in an election deemed fraudulent by several countries. India is the second-largest buyer of Venezuelan crude after the US, which has set up an alternate payment system for the crude it buys. US payment for Venezuelan oil now flows through an account that would be available to the head of Venezuela’s...
