Russia’s Lukoil and Saudi Aramco are discussing opportunities for cooperation on the African continent and elsewhere, Vagit Alekperov, the president and CEO of the company, said on Wednesday.

“We are always discussing joint opportunities with them, and they are showing interest in other countries, in Africa, but for now, this is at the stage of research and talks”, Alekperov said on the sidelines of Russia-Africa forum in Sochi.




When asked at what oil prices projects in Africa proved to be economically profitable, Alekperov said that they showed profit when oil was at around $60 per barrel.

“Currently, all of our economic indicators are being based on the $60 per barrel oil price, which includes inflation. [At this price] projects [in Africa] show positive economic [profits]”, the Lukoil CEO said.
