An Arkansas regulatory body voted on Wednesday to bar the use of a weed killer critical to Monsanto Co's seed sales for a second consecutive summer, ratcheting up a standoff after the company sued the state to prevent restrictions on the product. The Arkansas State Plant Board plans to prohibit sprayings of products containing a chemical known as dicamba between April 16 and Oct. 31, 2018, after an estimated 3.6 million acres of U.S. crops suffered damage linked to the herbicides this year. The United States has faced a weed-killer crisis this year caused by new versions of herbicides with dicamba, which farmers and weed experts say harm crops because they evaporate and drift away from where they are applied.

U.S. sanctions have made financing large Russian projects "almost impossible", the chief executive of Austrian energy company OMV (IOB: 0MKH.IL - news) , which has invested in the Nord Stream-2 trans-Baltic gas pipeline project, said on Wednesday.

Gazprom's officials also said during a call with investors that the newly imposed sanctions by the United States did not bar the company from borrowing abroad. The legislation includes sanctions on foreign companies investing in or helping Russian energy exploration, and cut the period for which U.S.-based entities can provide finance to Russian energy firms from 90 to 60 days.

The European Union's executive on Friday asked 28 governments in the bloc to give it the authority to negotiate with Russia to ensure its laws are respected in building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, a project that has divided EU states.

Backers such as Germany say it will offer the EU cheaper supplies.

"This outstanding performance has led us to revise Lundin Petroleum's full year production guidance to between 75,000 and 85,000 boepd, and to reduce our cash operating cost guidance for the full year to $4.90 per barrel," it said in a statement.
Western partners of gas giant Gazprom agreed on Monday to provide half the financing for the 9.5-billion euro ($10.32 billion) Nord Stream 2 pipeline, removing a big hurdle for a Russian plan to pump more gas to Europe.

Austrian oil and gas group OMV said on Monday it would provide long-term financing to secure 30 percent of its share of project costs of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia. Under the agreement between ...
