07:19 EDTBP, RDS.A, STOBP says potential oil-price manipulation probed by U.S., EU, Asian regulators
BP (BP), in its annual report filed yesterday, disclosed that in May 2013, European Commission officials made a series of unannounced inspections at the offices of BP and other companies involved in the oil industry acting on concerns that anticompetitive practices may have occurred in connection with oil price reporting practices and the reference price assessment process. "Such inspections are a preliminary step in investigations. There is no deadline for the completion of the inquiries," BP said. BP added that related inquiries and requests for information have also been received from U.S. and other regulators following the European Commissionís actions. In June 2013, the Federal Trade Commission served BP with a Request for Voluntary Submission of Documents and Information regarding its non-public investigation into whether or not Shell (RDS.A), BP or Statoil (STO) have engaged in unfair methods of competition or manipulative or deceptive conduct. BP said it is producing documents to the FTC. Also in June 2013, BP received an initial request for information from the Japanese Fair Trade Commission and in December 2013, the Korea Fair Trade Commission initiated an investigation and a first information request is expected to be issued. In January 2014, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission requested price reporting documents from BP, the company added.

09:07 EDTSTOGE, Statoil, Ferus Natural Gas Fuels announce pilot project expansion
A joint venture of GE (GE) and Ferus Natural Gas Fuels,along with Statoil (STO) announced the planned expansion of a pilot project to capture flare gas and use it to power up to six of Statoilís drill rigs and one frac fleet in North Dakota. The expansion is the first step by Statoil to move into full commercial adoption of the GE and Ferus NGF joint ventureís Last Mile Fueling Solution, which is expected to reduce emissions and provide cost-savings and logistics solutions for the companyís Bakken oilfield operations. The company anticipates this new commercial expansion will increase its flare gas capture to between 3M-5M standard cubic feet per day by the end of 2014, equating to GHG emissions reductions of between 120K and up to 200K metric tons per year, or the equivalent of removing between 25K-45K cars from the road.

14:46 EDTSTODrilling of Statoil well off Norway held up by Greenpeace gripe, Bloomberg says
Drilling of Statoil's first well off Norway in the Barents Sea may be delayed following a complaint from Greenpeace, Bloomberg reports. Drilling can't begin until the Norwegian Environment Agency handles the appeal this week, Bloomberg added, citing an e-mail from Reidar Evensen, a spokesman for the agency. Greenpeace says the arctic well being pursued by Statoil is an oil-spill hazard and that "the field is too close to vulnerable resources such as Bear Island and the the ice edge." Reference Link
