Rosneft Capex at $15Bln

Rosneft expects its capital expenditures to be about $15 billion next year, flat from 2012, as the company increased dividend payout and is poised for a $55 billion takeover, it said in a presentation Thursday.

The growth in capital expenditures will be halted after an increase from $9 billion in 2010 to $13 billion last year.

Rosneft, which is acquiring Anglo-Russian crude producer TNK-BP for $55 billion, did not provide the breakdown of the investment outlays, but its refineries require urgent modernization.

A Rosneft spokesman declined comment.

Earlier this year, Rosneft's chief executive, Igor Sechin, announced that the company would double its dividend-payout ratio to 25 percent of net income, with total payments at 7.53 rubles per share.
