The deal was signed in Moscow between Rosneft President Igor Sechin and Venenzuelan Oil Minister and PDVSA President Rafael Ramirez. The agreement between the two state owned oil giants includes joint studies for evaluation of technical and economic viability of offshore gas in Venezuela, gas liquefaction for export and domestic sales and additional joint development of natural gas fields.
Rosneft and PDVSA are discussing the possibilities of developing oil and gas projects in the Rio Caribe and Mejillones fields, as well as exploring for hydrocarbons in the Venezuelan part of the Caribbean Basin, Gulf of Venezuela and the Atlantic Coast, Rosneft said in a press release today.
