Russian gas production growth to meet rising domestic demand and exports.

Gas production rebounded in 2017 (4%) after three years of slowdown

Russia accounted for more than 1/3 of the increase in global gas production in 2017, propelled by a strong growth in domestic demand and exports.
Gas production also soared in Iran, which has been ramping up production from its South Pars fields in recent years to support domestic needs.
After a small decline in 2016, US gas production grew again, exceeding its 2015 level, and the country became a net exporter. Gas production also increased again in Canada, though at a slower pace than in 2016.
Australian gas production was spurred by new LNG capacities commissioned in 2016, that raised domestic output by nearly 1/5.
Gas production also surged in Egypt, after seven years of production decline, thanks to the commissioning of the West Nile Delta project.
European gas production continued to fall in 2017, resulting from conventional gas depletion and mandated production restriction in The Netherlands, despite a significant increase in Norwegian gas production.

India mulls over 25% safeguard duty on solar imports from China

The Indian Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended the implementation of a 25% safeguard importation duty on solar cell imports from China and Malaysia for a 2-year period. The proposal has not yet been approved by the government and the duty will start at 25% in the first year, then be reduced to 20% for the first six months of the second year and to 15% in the final six month period. The proposal is very similar to the safeguard duty levied by the United States in January 2018, which set up anti-dumping tariffs on imported solar cells and modules at 30% during the first year and then gradually declining to 15% after a 4-year period.
