Rosneft confirms that BP, in connection with the sale of its interest in TNK-BP to Rosneft, has waived its right to negotiate in good faith to purchase the AAR consortium’s stake in TNK-BP.

This is a step forward in the implementation of the heads of terms, announced earlier today, between Rosneft and the AAR consortium, which provides for Rosneft to acquire AAR’s 50% interest in TNK-BP for cash consideration of $28 billion. The transaction remains subject to agreeing the definitive transaction documentation, which the parties have started preparing, as well as the required corporate and regulatory approvals and certain other conditions.
