The document was signed by Igor Sechin, President of Rosneft,and Helge Lund, Statoil CEO. Statoil says this is another significant step forward following the Heads of Agreement for shale oil cooperation signed in June this year.

"Today’s agreement demonstrates the two parties’ commitment to jointly move forward in an attempt to unlock the hydrocarbon potential of the Domanik shale formation. If successful, we believe this could be a world class shale oil asset,” says Lund.
