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".

We are seeing more large oil companies making deals to share the risk in these ventures.

Seems the other countries don't have any problem with getting oil from the Arctic while we sit on our hands.

While the US government keeps most of the federal land in the "Great White North" off limits to research.

The Arctic is too fragile to be used for oil drilling.

We didn't get the job because it is in Russian waters!

And, if you read the article, "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."
