Energy Blast – Nov 15, 2011

A Washington NGO is reporting that Russian scientist Vyacheslav Danilenko (‘a central character in the still-unfolding mystery that is Iran’s nuclear program’) had a role in helping Iran develop nuclear technology.  Rosneft is expected to surpass the year’s record of $11 billion in capital spending thanks to production investments and refinery upgrades.  Rosatom is planning to double in size and expand its global reach.  The Russian government is delaying its decision on tax breaks for Tatneft until next year.
