26. February 2014. / SEE Energy News

Russian investors are interested in buying the Croatian oil company Ina and soon will come to Zagreb to meet with the Government representatives. The Russians could come in Zagreb in late February and it is likely to meet with Prime Minister ZoranMilanovic.

It is not known that the Russian oil company is interested in buying, and decision will depend on the government’s energy strategy towards the region of Southeast Europe.

If they decide to get into the job, the Russians will buy share of the Hungarian company MOL of 49.1 percent of the shares, but before that they want to learn about the attitudes of the Croatian government.

As possible buyers so far were also mentioned two Russian state-owned companies – Rosneft and Gazprom, and its daughter company Gazprom Neft.

Chairman of the Board of Gazprom, Alexei Miller, recently met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, as quoted by the Hungarian media, and then discussed on INA.
