Rosneft in talks with Gazprom over gas sales to China

PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, Russia, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Rosneft, Russia's top oil producer, would like to sell natural gas to China as well as oil, and is talking to Gazprom GAZP.MM on the project, Rosneft President Eduard Khudainatov said.

Rosneft has its own natural gas deposits in eastern Russia near China.

Khudainatov also said that state-controlled Rosneft has sold so-called technical oil to China to fill a new pipeline.

“We were asked by our (Chinese) partners for it ... So we have sold, on good conditions for Rosneft, for market price, 550,000 tonnes. No discounts,” he told reporters on Wednesday. (Reporting by Denis Dyomkin; Writing by Toni Vorobyova)
