Rosneft oil firm files for auction to sell Yukos foreign assets
Russian state-controlled crude producer Rosneft said Monday it had filed an application for an auction to sell an overseas subsidiary of the bankrupt oil firm Yukos.
Rosneft did not specify whether its parent company or its subsidiary, Neft-Aktiv, which has experience participating in Yukos auctions, would bid for Dutch-based Yukos Finance, which owns the bankrupt firm’s overseas assets. Russia!s federal property fund has set the auction for August 15, with a starting bid price of 7.6 billion rubles ($298 million).
Through a series of liquidation auctions, Yukos has repaid around 400 billion rubles ($16 billion) to creditors. The company’s key production and refining assets have been bought up by Rosneft at or following auctions, making the state-controlled company one of the country’s leading crude producers. (rian.ru)
