Ananova: Iran Tensions Spike Oil Price Again

The price of crude oil has gone up to its highest level so far in 2007 amid the heightened tensions surrounding Iran.

It is pushing towards $64 a barrel in New York – and signs are it will increase even further.

The problem surrounds Tehran’s refusal to halt its nuclear programme despite the sanctions brought in by the UN.

The latest developments have renewed market concerns that the world’s fourth-largest oil exporter could one day cut its exports in retaliation.

Iran’s capture of 15 British naval personnel in the Gulf last week has also heightened worries. read more

Lagos – Two hostages, one Lebanese and the other Indian, were released on Sunday after they were abducted two days ago in Nigeria’s oil-producing delta region, local authorities said.

The two construction workers, employed by Nigerian firm Setraco, were taken at gunpoint from their workplace near the city of Warri on Friday.

UpstreamOnline: CNPC to double Iran budget

By Upstream staff

China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) will double its spending on an ageing Iranian oilfield and aims to start drilling this year, an industry official said today.

CNPC recently renegotiated terms with the National Iranian Oil Company and raised its investment to about $150 million to produce oil from the Masjed-i-Suleiman field, an official familiar with the project told Reuters.

The service contract was initially signed in 2004.

Irish Times: Intrigue in Russia as BP signals intent to grab slice of oil assets

Conor Sweeney in Moscow
Published: Mar 26, 2007

Kremlin intrigue shrouds tomorrow’s auction of controversial Russian oil assets, which has dragged BP deep into the country’s complex energy politics.

Although anticipated to be little more than a forced auction, the surprise bid for one of the remaining crown jewels in the bankrupt oil giant Yukos may at last be attracting international interest.

At least that’s the impression BP wishes to portray, after announcing it will compete through its Moscow-based subsidiary TNK-BP with the Kremlin- controlled Rosneft for the 9.44 per cent stake in Rosneft, which Yukos had once controlled. read more
