Reuters – UK Focus – * New costs could encourage BP to reduce Russia exposure (Adds broader potential asset sales, Rosneft dividend) LONDON, Sept 5 (Reuters) – The prospect of up to $18 billion in new fines for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill could pressure BP to sell assets from the Americas to Asia and Russia, where its interests risk being dragged into a political standoff between Moscow and the West. “I wouldn't be surprised due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine and Russia if BP would like to reduce its huge 19.75 percent stake in the BP-Rosneft joint venture to cut their risks there, even though it is profit making,” said Natixis (Paris: FR0000120685 – news) analyst Abhishek Deshpande.
