LUKoil Overseas, one of the Russian oil giant's subsidiaries, sold its stock in the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli project to the Japanese oil company Inpex for some $1.354bn, a LUKoil official reported today.

The plan became a reality after BP and the Azerbaijani State Oil Company GNKAR gave their consent to the deal.
