    Iraqi Kurdistan will supply oil to Rosneft refineries, according to a recently signed contract.

    LONDON (Sputnik) — Russia's Rosneft and the regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan signed a three-year contract on the purchase of oil to deliver it to its refineries abroad, the Russian company said Tuesday.

    "The off-take and supply of Kurdish crude oil into Rosneft's worldwide expanding refining system will further contribute to the increase in its effectiveness," Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin said in a statement.

    The 2017-2019 pre-financed crude oil purchase and sale contract, part of a cooperation agreement in the fields of upstream, infrastructure, logistics and trading, was signed on the sidelines of the International Petroleum Week conference in London.
