BP to dump 20 percent stake in Russian oil firm Rosneft after Putin’s ‘acts of aggression’

OIL GIANT BP has announced that they will be offloading their stake in a Russian state-owned oil company in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

By CHARLES HARRISON

The massive oil company has announced that it will be offloading its 19.75 percent stake in Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft.

BP Chairman Helge Lund said: “Russia’s attack on Ukraine is an act of aggression which is having tragic consequences across the region.”

It has led the bp board to conclude, after a thorough process, that our involvement with Rosneft, a state-owned enterprise, simply cannot continue.

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said he had left BP’s boss with “no doubt about the seriousness of government concerns about BP’s overexposure to Russian interests” after a meeting on Friday, according to an official. read more

Shell faces $1bn hit if Nord Stream 2 never opens

Shell may have to write off up to $1 billion that it has invested in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine increased the likelihood that it may never be allowed to start up, analysts have warned.

The oil major has bankrolled 10 per cent of the cost of constructing the 750-mile pipeline under the Baltic Sea, which is designed to double the flow of gas from Russia directly to Germany.

The project, owned by Gazprom, the Russian state gas giant, has long been opposed by America on security grounds. Construction was completed in September, but it has not gained approval from Germany to start up. read more
