BEIJING (Reuters) – Russian state oil giant Rosneft’s <ROSN.MM> board of directors has approved the 2018 annual deal to supply CEFC China Energy about 12 million tonnes of crude oil, a Chinese source with direct knowledge of the matter said on Thursday. Of the total supply, CEFC expects to receive 8 to 10 million tonnes of ESPO crude from Russia’s Far East, the source said. The private Chinese conglomerate will start receiving oil from January, with volumes estimated at around 2 million tonnes for the first quarter. A CEFC spokesman couldn’t immediately comment.
