Rosneft Sale to Qatar

Excellent article, absolutely spot on. The 19.5% of Rosneft was sold to the Qatar Investment Authority, although via a very convoluted route. You should read these by Andy French, which is also great investigative work. Qatar were given this “present” and a seat at the Arctic Oil & Gas table in return for their agreement to stick to LNG sent to Asia while the RUS-IRAN-TUR-QAT gas club focuses on new pipelines to Turkey and nailiong gas market to Europe for next 40 years. hence the phony Turkish coup, the fake wedging of Saudi-Qatar, the Kazakhstan meeting tripartite pacts. Brilliant!
