(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Dmitry medvedev said corrections are possible in the recently inked deal on the purchase of Russia's third largest crude producer TNK-BP.

Russia's largest oil company Rosneft announced in October it had reached agreements to buy 100% of TNK-BP from British oil major BP and the AAR consortium of Russian billionaire shareholders, according to the Russian News Agency (RIA Novosti).

"Technically, parameters of the TNK-BP deal may be corrected considering the changeable market situation," Medvedev said.

"But on the whole, the main provisions of the deal should be preserved, if we are not considering force majeure scenarios. This is the issue of an agreement between the seller and the buyer," Medvedev said.

Under the terms of the deal, Rosneft will buy the whole of TNK-BP for 45.1 billion in cash and 12.84% of its stock.

BP will receive 17.1 billion in cash for its 50% stake plus stock representing 12.84% of Rosneft's shares, while the AAR consortium of Russian billionaire shareholders will sell its 50% stake in the joint venture "for cash consideration of 28 billion."

Rosneft signed a definitive agreement with BP on acquiring the British oil major's 50% interest last week while the deal with AAR is at an advanced stage. The TNK-BP deal is expected to be closed in the first half of 2013.
