MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Rosneft <ROSN.MM> and Italy's Eni <ENI.MI> are discussing terms of a suspension of their joint hydrocarbon projects in the Barents Sea, Interfax cited a Russian government official as saying on Wednesday.

The unnamed official also said the Italian company had in March withdrawn from a project in the Black Sea, another venture with Rosneft.

Kommersant reported in May, citing industry sources, that both projects had effectively been halted because of U.S. sanctions.
