Sechin pledges to continue Arctic drilling without ExxonMobil

Sechin: Rosneft’s chief Igor Sechin has promised that the company will carry on drilling in the Arctic’s Kara Sea despite the withdrawal of its partner ExxonMobil because of sanctions. “We will continue drilling in any case, on our own, always and everywhere. If partners can take part — that’s good, if they can’t — we will carry on alone,” he said today. The Moscow Times
