Executives with Italian refiner Saras and Russian
state-controlled oil company OAO Rosneft met in Rome this past
weekend to discuss opportunities for cooperation.
According to a Rosneft press statement released Tuesday, its
president Igor Sechin met Saras chairman Gian Marco Moratti and
CEO Massimo Moratti and agreed to form a working group
that will review joint commercial opportunities.
The arrangement could include crude oil supply to the
Sarroch refinery in Sardinia, but will not
be limited to that, the statement says.
No timetable for a potential decision was given.
