Spain's Repsol in joint venture with Alliance Oil

Spain's Repsol YPF energy company says it is forming a joint venture with the Moscow-based Alliance Oil Company Ltd. to seek growth opportunities in Russia.

The Spanish company said in a statemetn Saturday that Alliance Oil will hold 51 percent in the joint venture and contribute production assets in the Volga-Urals region, while Repsol will own the remaining stake by making a cash investment.
