Rosneft and BP agree to explore for shale oil in Russia


BY KATYA GOLUBKOVA, VLADIMIR SOLDATKIN AND DENIS PINCHUK ST PETERSBURG, May 24, 2014
(Reuters) – Rosneft and BP signed an agreement on Saturday to jointly explore for hard-to-recover oil in Russia. Moscow is hoping to repeat the shale oil boom in the United States, which changed the global energy landscape as Washington is gradually cutting oil imports and preparing to start exports, pushing other producers like Russia to forge closer business ties with Asia.


"Our country has a goal not only to sustain and improve positions of one of the leading energy suppliers but to become one of the leaders of starting transformation of the global energy," Putin told the forum on Saturday. Russia is the world's leading oil producer with current output of around 10.5 million barrels per day (bpd) but the bulk of production is coming from depleted western Siberian deposits.


With Putin attending the ceremony, Sechin and BP Russia head David Campbell signed an agreement at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum to jointly explore for hard-to-recover oil in the Volga-Urals region of central Russia. Rosneft will hold 51 percent of the joint venture which will explore the so-called Domanic formation and BP will hold 49 percent. BP holds an almost 20 percent stake in Rosneft.


"President (Putin) has urged us today to invest into shale oil... There's so many natural resources in Russia, the openness and partnerships Russia has with companies from all over the world is a good thing for energy," Dudley said on Saturday after meeting Putin in private along with other energy executives. Earlier this week, Russia and China signed a gas contract worth $400 billion against the background of the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War. Moscow is already supplying oil to Asia via the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline. The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates Russian recoverable shale oil resources at 75 billion barrels, more than the 58 billion barrels held by the United States, now the leader in shale oil production. Rosneft has previously also reached agreements with ExxonMobil (XOM.N) of the United States and Norway's Statoil (STL.OL) to explore for hard-to-recover oil.


"My message to Russia is simple - business as usual," said de Margerie from Eni's (ENI.MI) who signed a deal with private Russian firm Lukoil (LKOH.MM) to explore for unconventional oil during the forum. Dudley, who had bumpy relations with Russia as head of TNK-BP, now part of Rosneft, told reporters that BP is not going to sell its stake in Rosneft. "I think it is important to come and to watch and listen... to where the things are going... We have responsibility to stand with our partners in difficult time," he said.
