Rosneft denies reports on Eni’s withdrawal from JV
"Information on Eni’s withdrawal from JV with Rosneft does not correspond to reality. Rosneft and Eni remain partners on JV," the Russian company said in a statement.
In its turn, Italian oil major Eni said the company would continue meeting its commitments as long as international sanctions allowed this, informs TASS.
Eni is one of Rosneft’s strategic partners in exploring Russia’s continental shelf, namely the Barents Sea and the Black Sea. In December 2017, the companies started joint drilling on the Black Sea’s shelf.
