BY JAMES MARSON
MOSCOW -- Lukoil,said it has bought a 65% stake in an offshore upstream project off the Ivory Coast.
Lukoil bought the stake in the CI-504 block in the Gulf of Guinea from Taleveras Energy, which will retain a 25% share, the Russian firm said. The remaining 10% is held by PETROCI Holding.
Lukoil has in recent years sought to develop projects abroad to offset dwindling output at its Soviet-era fields in Russia.
