Rosneft Brasil (100% owned Rosneft subsidiary) and Petro Rio S.A. (PetroRio) announce the closing of the Rosneft Brasil transaction to acquire PetroRio's 55% in the Solimões project. Closing follows formal approval of the transaction by ANP (Agencia Nacional do Petroleo, Gas Natural e Biocombustiveis - Brazil).

The finalization of the transaction will lead to Rosneft Brasil receiving 100% control and full operatorship in the Solimões project to the company.

The transaction totaled USD 55 million.

The acquisition of the remaining interest in the Solimoes Project will allow Rosneft Brasil to continue the exploration program in frontier areas, focused on oil opportunities, and advance joint work with Petrobras on the monetization of proven gas resources. Planning will now start on the commencement of operations before 2015 is out.
