The MOU – signed by Rosneft President and Chairman of the Management Board Igor Sechin and PetroVietnam Chairman of the Board of Directors Phung Dinh Thuc in the presence of President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung – acknowledges both parties’ intention to expand their cooperation in upstream and downstream segments of the oil and gas industry in Vietnam, Russia and third countries.
