Earlier this year Trannsneft confirmed its intention to acquire from Summa Group the latter’s share in Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port group. The potential acquisition was approved by the Russian anti-trust authorities.
However, the deal which would allow Transneft to accumulate a 50.1% package in NCSP (in addition to the 10.5% controlled via Transneft-Service) was put on hold after Ziyavudin Magomedov, the majority shareholder in Summa, was arrested on March 30 on state money misappropriation charges.
