TNK-BP eyes 35 pct in Vietnam gas asset from BP

MOSCOW, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Russia's TNK-BP TNBPI.RTS would like to buy a 35 percent stake in a BP BP.L gas deposit in Vietnam known as Block 06-1, TNK-BP CEO Maxim Barsky said on Wednesday.

“Yes, we have a proposal from BP about block 061. I hope that at the next board meeting we will make a proposal,” he said.

He also said that Petrovietnam has offered TNK-BP a 50 percent share in an oil refinery with a capacity of 6 million tonnes a year. In exchange, the Vietnamese firm could enter an oil producing asset in Russia, he added, without giving details.

“We are interested in this,” Barsky said. (Reporting by Katya Golubkova; Writing by Toni Vorobyova)
