GE, Rosneft sign MOU to jointly evaluate & develop opportunities in oil & gas exploration & production in the Russian Federation

Under the terms of the MOU, GE and Rosneft will form a joint working group to identify the range of potential opportunities for short and long–term opportunities, including equipment for Arctic offshore field development, gas monetization technologies and enhanced oil recovery and difficult reserve development.

GE sells advanced technology equipment and services for all segments of the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry, from subsea, drilling and production, LNG, pipelines and storage to industrial power generation, refining and petrochemicals.

Rosneft is a leader in Russia’s petroleum industry, and ranks among the world’s top publicly traded oil and gas companies. It is primarily engaged in exploration and production of hydrocarbons, production of petroleum products and petrochemicals, and marketing of outputs.
