Russia will establish a major new media resource aimed at promoting Russian national interest in the Arctic.
Russia's planned expansion of the Blue Stream gas pipeline to Turkey may end up being considerably smaller than originally thought, according to Russia's energy minister Alexander Novak, a move analysts say could be linked to the difficult talks between Moscow and Ankara over the construction of the vast TurkStream pipeline and gas supply price.
Blue Stream - which runs from Russia to Turkey under the Black Sea - has a current capacity of 16 Bcm/year and is able to supply almost one third of Turkey's fast-growing gas demand.
Gazprom agreed on a 3 Bcm expansion of Blue Stream's capacity toward the end of last year, but now it looks like only 1 Bcm of capacity will be added to the line.

The Ministry of oil in Sudan signed a $70 million agreement on Sunday (Oct. 4) with Russia’s Gazohim Techno for liquefaction of gas produced at Neem field in the west of the country using a process known as gas-to-liquids (GTL).
Under the agreement a plant will be constructed to liquefy gas with a capacity of processing 10 million cubic feet of gas per day and convert to petroleum products such as gasoline and diesel at an estimated rate of 100 million tons of fuel per year.
Sudapet will own 51% of the plant and the remaining 49% will be held by the Russian company. The project will be implemented within 18 months.

Russia and Turkey will sign the intergovernmental agreement on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline not earlier than in December, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Saturday (Oct. 3).
Finland's gas utility Gasum said on Friday (Oct. 2) it has dropped plans to build a regional liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal and a gas link to Estonia, citing declining gas demand and poor economics of the two projects.
The decision would benefit Russia's Gazprom, Finland's sole natural gas supplier, which also has a 25 percent stake in Gasum. The government, which has the remaining 75 percent stake in Gasum, said the Nordic country can still apply with Estonia for European Union's financial support to build the pipeline across the Gulf of Finland.
The Russian government has announced that it is seeking to source equipment for offshore oil production from new countries due to the impact of sanctions by the European Union and the United States. However, as experts note, the development of Arctic fields is being hindered by low oil prices.

Russian gas monopoly Gazprom and Germany’s Wintershall have closed their asset swap deal. The Russian company will get European gas storage facilities in exchange for German access to Western Siberia projects.
Gazprom takes complete control of Wingas, Wieh and Wiee gas storage companies in Europe as well as 50 percent of Winz that explores and produces hydrocarbons in the North Sea.
These assets accounted for almost €12.2 billion turnover in 2014 for BASF, Wintershall’s parent company.
In return, Wintershall gets 25.01 percent of the project to develop two Achimov deposits in the Urengoy field in Western Siberia. These deposits are difficult to access.
China could import 100 Bcm of Russian gas, including natural gas and LNG, in 2020, or about one third of the country's total consumption, as it sees Russia as a strategic partner that would help it move to cleaner fuel away from coal, Zhen Wang, CNPC's deputy director-general, policy research, told journalists Wednesday (Sept.30).
China has chosen gas as its next top growth fuel, as it is required to lower emissions by 2020 according to an agreement with the US. Gas is to make up 60% of China's energy portfolio by then, Wang said.
China is to build a US$2.5 billion LNG terminal in the Balochistan province, and an Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline under the China-Pakistan Economic corridor project. Construction is expected to start in November 2016. The terminal will be able to process 500 million ft3/d.
