Lukoil said to be in talks with oil majors to sell Venezuela stake

  • Russian oil producer Lukoil (LUKOY, LUKOF) reportedly has been in talks with international majors about selling its stake in a consortium developing a large oil project in Venezuela.
  • Lukoil has said it wanted to sell its 20% stake in the Russian Junin-6 consortium developing heavy oil in the Orinoco basin to focus on other projects; consortium leader Rosneft apparently made a low-ball offer, and Lukoil has since held talks with Cnooc (CEO), Sinopec (SNP), Statoil (STO), Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and various state-run firms.
  • The Russian consortium owns a 40% stake in the project; Lukoil's stake in the consortium is said to be worth ~$200M.
