Indian companies obtain substantial interest in one of the biggest large-scale projects of Rosneft of the last decade, whereas Rosneft retains 61.1% shares in the project.
Rosneft finalizes the creation of an international energy hub on the basis of the Vankor cluster within short timeframes: currently underway is the preparation to the closing of the deal for the acquisition of an additional 11% share in project by ONGC Videsh Limited (after the closing ONGC Videsh Limited's share in Vankorneft JSC will reach 26%). Consequently the share of Indian state companies may increase to 49.9%.
The achieved evaluation of Vankor Project is USD 3.4 per barrel of hydrocarbon reserves (in terms of 2P category using PRMS method) and reflects high potential of the project's resource base. With account for the multipliers achieved, the design value of hydrocarbon reserves of Rosneft exceeds the current enterprise value of the Company more than twice.
