Russia is ready to consider application of China for over 50% stake in oil fields
Almaty. February 27. KazTAG - Russia is ready to consider possible provision of over 50% in oil fields to China, except the shelf projects, reports the TASS news agency.
"There have been no requests on the strategic fields, perhaps, because our Chinese friends realize that now the partnership 50x50 or 51x49 is more comfortable for us. China will never enter confrontation with anyone, but it protects its interests, works on the principle of comfort and loyalty for partners. I think that now it is mutual psychological understanding that this way is better. If they file a request, we will seriously consider it, I see no political barriers now," said Arkadiy Dvorkovich, Vice Premier of Russia.
"Shelf is a separate question, where we invite the minority of Chinese partners, there are no such limits on the majority of other projects," he added.
