    Arkansas pushes ahead with summertime ban on Monsanto, BASF weed killers

    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 preventing Russian project financing - OMV CEO

    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. Washington imposed new sanctions, several targeting Russia's energy sector, last month to punish Moscow over alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the annexation of Ukraine's Crimea. "The financing of such large infrastructure projects becomes almost impossible after the introduction of such sanctions," OMV (EUREX: 430021.EX - news) CEO Rainer Seele was quoted as saying by Interfax.

    Sweden's Lundin ups output guidance, brushes off Arctic setback

    Sweden's Lundin Petroleum (LSE: 0NNR.L - news) lifted its full year production guidance on Wednesday and said it still expected to find more oil in the Barents Sea despite a recent setback. Lundin said it was able to increase production capacity at its Edvard Grieg platform to 145,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day (boepd) from its designed capacity of 126,000. "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.
