From the Exxon side has come this week's announcement that the company will team with Russia's state-run oil giant Rosneft at a cost of $2.2 billion in the quest for oil in the ice-laden but promising Kara Sea in the Russian Arctic. At the same time, the Texas-based big enchilada among publicly held energy companies will pony up an additional $1 billion for a similar venture with Rosneft in the Black Sea. Also, the deal will likely let Rosneft participate in Exxon-operated deepwater Gulf of Mexico activities, along with joining onshore projects in Texas. Beyond that, there's the possibility of the Russian company joining in Canada's Hibernia project, which is 33%-owned by Exxon.

As you likely suspect, Exxon is replacing BP in the arctic portion of a partnership that was announced early this year. Rosneft and BP had planned a $16 billion agreement that would have yielded a 9.5% stake in Rosneft to the London-based company, while handing a 5% interest in BP to the Russians. The unusual deal was announced a matter of days before the disclosure of an Exxon-Rosneft venture for exploration of the Black Sea.

It didn't take long, however, for BP's Russian billionaire partners in the 50-50 TNK-BP joint venture to unleash a cacophony of disgruntlement involving a claim that BP's Rosneft deal violated the terms of its 2003 venture with the Russian oligarchs. The well-heeled locals -- who operate under Alfa-Access-Renova, or AAR -- took their argument in the form of a lawsuit to London's High Court, where they succeeded in obtaining an injunction that thwarted the new combination.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian

The lack of hiring in the U.S. last month surprised investors. Economists were expecting 93,000 jobs to be added. Previously reported hiring figures for June and July were revised lower. The average work week declined and hourly earnings fell. The unemployment rate held steady at 9.1 percent. The rate has been above 9 percent in all but two months since May 2009.

Kleintop said the jobs report didn't change his view that the economy was headed for a stretch of weak economic growth, not a recession. He said the figures were likely skewed by unusual events that may have made employers reluctant to add jobs in August.

The Labor Department's report relies on data collected from surveys of households and businesses in the second week of August. That's right after Standard & Poor's removed the country's AAA credit rating and fears mounted that Europe's banking crisis could spread to the U.S. Television screens were filled with images of riots in London.

"I'm not surprised that businesses weren't doing too much hiring in that environment," Kleintop said.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian

The job market is even worse than the 9.1 percent unemployment rate suggests.

America's 14 million unemployed aren't competing just with each other. They must also contend with 8.8 million other people not counted as unemployed -- part-timers who want full-time work.

When consumer demand picks up, companies will likely boost the hours of their part-timers before they add jobs, economists say. It means they have room to expand without hiring.

And the unemployed will face another source of competition once the economy improves: Roughly 2.6 million people who aren't counted as unemployed because they've stopped looking for work. Once they start looking again, they'll be classified as unemployed. And the unemployment rate could rise.

Intensified competition for jobs means unemployment could exceed its historic norm of 5 percent to 6 percent for several more years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects the rate to exceed 8 percent until 2014. The White House predicts it will average 9 percent next year, when President Barack Obama runs for re-election.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian

Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on Sunday called for the creation of a "United States of Europe," saying the bloc needed a common government to avoid future economic crises.

Schroeder, a Social Democrat who ran the country from 1998 to 2005, said in an interview with Der Spiegel that European Union leaders were wrong to expect the euro to drive the bloc on its own.

"The current crisis makes it relentlessly clear that we cannot have a common currency zone without a common fiscal, economic and social policy," Schroeder said.

He added: "We will have to give up national sovereignty."

"From the European Commission, we should make a government which would be supervised by the European Parliament. And that means the United States of Europe."

Schroeder, who nurtured a close relationship with France during his leadership, welcomed an initiative launched by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy to move toward a fiscal union in 2012.

Their proposal, which would mean giving up sovereignty over budgetary policies with the aim to shore up the 17-nation currency union, has received a lukewarm response from other euro zone countries.
