UNITED STATES: Exxon Mobile Requests Approval to Resume Venture with Rosneft

On 19 April, Exxon Mobil representatives requested approval to resume their Black Sea drilling venture with Rosneft. Rosneft, based near the Kremlin, is majority owned by the Russian government. The venture was stalled in 2014 due to the US sanctions on Russia. The request is being considered by President Donald Trump’s administration.
