QINGDAO (eastern China), May 18 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian oil major Rosneft’s state stake of 19.5% minus one share can be sold as a whole or in parts, Minister of Economic Development Aleksey Ulyukayev said.
The minister noted earlier that “the deal can be finalised this year.”
Rosneft’s stake of 19.5% minus one share is expected to be privatised. Russian state-run company Rosneftegaz owns 69.5% of Rosneft’s stock. Additional federal budget revenues in dividends from Rosneftegaz can reach 423.5 billion roubles (around $12.1 billion) in case of sale.
The Russian state will retain a controlling stake of the oil company after privatisation.
