MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Chief Executive of the Russian oil major Rosneft Igor Sechin held talks with India’s Essar in Mumbai, Rosneft Vice President Mikhail Leontiev told TASS on Thursday.
"Negotiations were held. We had a memorandum [on acquisition of a 49% stake in Essar Oil’s refinery - TASS] and we are carrying on talks within its framework," Leontiev said. A broader range of questions was discussed during the meeting, he added.
Rosneft and Essar shareholders signed a term sheet on Russian company’s accession to the share capital of Vadinar Refinery with the stake up to 49%.
