According to a report in 'Barents Observer' Rosneft will be the main partner of Statoil and Eni in the Barents Sea, where the new CEO has highlighted the importance of three grand projects in the Russian Arctic.

He also confirmed that he in last weekend’s G8 meeting discussed the role of Rosneft’s giant offshore projects with world leaders.
