ONGC Videsh, Indian Oil, Oil India to ink $2-bn deals with Rosneft : 15 March 2016

State-run oil companies including ONGC Videsh (OVL), Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Oil India (OIL) and Bharat PetroResources (BPRL) are set to clinch deals worth $2 billion with Russia's Rosneft on Wednesday for acquiring hydrocarbon assets. Rosneft's chief executive Igor Sechin will arrive in New Delhi Tuesday afternoon for this purpose.

In one of the deals, IOC, OIL and BPRL would acquire up to 30% stake in the Taas-Yuryakh oil and gas fields in East Siberia, an official privy to the development told FE.

Also, OVL would hike its stake up to 26% from current 15% in the Vankor oil field. Both these deals together would cost the Indian explorers close to $2 billion.

On December 9, 2015, FE was first to report IOC and OIL negotiating to pick up stakes in Rosneft's asset.

New Delhi's interest in increasing economic co-operation with Kremlin is seen as an extension of several rounds of talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin held in New Delhi and overseas.

"The memorandums of understanding (MoUs) are already in place. The final agreements based on terms agreeable to both sides are to be decided. We hope to reach an agreement," said another senior government official.
The move comes after another OVL, in September 2015, announced buying 15% stake in Vankorneft (that runs the Vankor oil field in East Siberia) from the Russian firm for $1.25 billion.

The Taas-Yuryakh oil and gas field is rich in gas with presence of oil layers. Currently, crude oil production hovers around 20,000 barrels per day (bpd). The field's reserves under Taas-Yuryakh Neftegazodobycha areas have total 167 million tonnes of liquid hydrocarbons and 181 billion cubic metres of gas. There are proposed programme for the development of the field that would reach the level of 5 million tonnes annually. In 2014, production of oil and gas condensate reached 1 million tonnes. Currently, oil produced by Taas-Yuryakh is being marketed to Asian customers via the the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil (ESPO) pipeline.

"Rosneft plans to select a second partner in Taas-Yuryakh Neftegazodobycha, which will have positive effect on the project's development in the long term," Rosneft spokesperson earlier told FE.

On June 19, Rosneft and BP signed final bidding agreements for a joint venture for the Taas-Yuryakh project, where the Russian explorer would sell 20% stake to the UK firm for $700 million.
