Crude Oil - Russia Buying British Know-How

Kremlin-near Russian oil giant Rosneft is buying British Petroleum's TNK-BP for $12.3 bn and stake in Rosneft. The new nine-member board of Rosneft will therefore include two BP members. According to Bloomberg financial TV, the whole British-Russian deal will amount to $55 bn, thus making it the third-biggest oil transaction.

Rosneft has proven oil reserves of 22.8 bn barrels. It is needing BP's know-how to tap arctic oil reserves in Siberia.
