Rosneft in Japan Talks

Rosneft will seek Japanese cash and technology to fund Siberian oil exploration at a meeting on Thursday, said two people with knowledge of the matter.

Rosneft will discuss 11 oil and gas licenses in Eastern Siberia and three blocks in the far eastern Magadan region with Japan's Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, one source said.

Japanese companies could hold 49 percent of any venture while financing exploration in full.

Japan may consider participating in a plan to build an oil-product pipeline from Rosneft's Komsomolsk refinery to the De Kastri port on the Pacific coast in exchange for stakes in oil production projects, one of the people said.

A planned petrochemical plant in the Russian Far East will also be discussed.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
