Rosneft affirmed its position concerning the activity in Venezuela, the company informed in response to declaration of Elliott Abrams, US special representative.
It was noted that Rosneft is an investor into the oil/gas sector in Venezuela, and any attempts to restrict activity of the Company or its subs in Venezuela undertaken by the US officials should be considered as illegal. Thus, Rosneft is ready to protect its right of investments at the appropriate national or international bodies.
The threats of US sanctions against the Company should be interpreted as unfair competition aimed to obtain advantages on the world market.
The crude shipment to Russia and counter petrol deliveries to Venezuela are executed in line with the contracts concluded before the introduction of any sanctions.
Besides, US officials' position is aimed to strengthen the world tension and to provoke negative impact for the investment value of the Company.
