Rosneft and Statoil in Arctic exploration deal

BBC News -- Russian oil giant Rosneft has signed a deal with Norway's Statoil to explore the sea around the Arctic.

It is the third deal Rosneft has signed in the past month, after Arctic exploration agreements with Italy's Eni and US giant Exxon Mobil.

Norway's state-held firm will get ownership of a third of a new joint venture that will explore one of Rosneft's fields in the Barents Sea.

The deals are a sign of Rosneft's growing global ambitions.

The Statoil agreement also covers three Rosneft blocs in the Far Eastern Sea of Okhotsk.

Some media reports put the value of the deal at about $2.5bn (£1.5bn) but Statoil told the BBC that it has "not given any valuation of the deal".

Other countries are drilling in our coastal waters up there. Obozo has approved such. But he does not want us drilling up there.

Obuma can be more flexable after the election because he will not be in the white house.

Dons't you just know Obama is livid that the Russians are cutting deals with all these companies to increase exploration when he's trying to cut back on production in order to raise fuel prices? Apparently Medvedev didn't get the word to Putin that Obama would be more "flexible" after the election.

Good deal for Norway. I believe they should fare very well on all of these deals.
