MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. The total consideration of the transaction between Russia’s Rosneft and British BP on acquisition of shares in refineries in Germany as part of the restructuring of Ruhr Oel GmbH, a joint operation with BP Group, amounted to $1.522 bln (92 bln rubles at the CBR official exchange rate at the acquisition date), according to the company’s IFRS financials released on Wednesday.
"As of December 31, 2016, the company had not yet completed the fair value estimation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the refineries in Germany.
