Rosneft to Pay Interest on $70Bln CNPC Advance Payment

A deal has been reached between state-owned Rosneft and China National Petroleum Corporation for an oil supply deal. Denis Grishkin

Rosneft will pay interest at a rate of 229 basis points over Libor for the $70 billion advance payment it will get from China National Petroleum Corporation as part of an oil supply deal, Itar-Tass reported, citing a recent agreement concluded by the companies.

The interest rate will equal 2.64 percent at the current Libor amount, or about $1.8 billion per year, according to the agreement. In March, Rosneft concluded a $270 billion deal to supply 365 million tons to CNPC over a period of 25 years.
