Russia's Deputy PM: Rosneft yet to ask approval for TNK-BP-Ifax
MOSCOW Oct 17 (Reuters) - Rosneft has yet to apply for government approval of a potential deal to buy into Anglo-Russian crude producer TNK-BP, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Wednesday, Interfax news agency reported.
Dvorkovich has opposed a deal, saying it will increase the state's involvement into the energy sector, and has said Rosneft should secure a green light from the government to buy into TNK-BP, Russia's third-largest crude producer.
Earlier on Wednesday, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters that the AAR consortium of billionaires that together with BP shares control of TNK-BP has agreed to sell its stake to Russia's state-controlled top oil producer Rosneft.
