Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) should see Rosneft Oil Co. passing it up to become the world’s largest publicly traded producer of oil and gas in terms of production, subsequent to the latter’s acquisition of the other 50 percent in the joint venture from AAR, for $17.1 billion in cash. The purchase is said by Rosneft to be “entirely independent of the transaction with BP,” which is not ending its 15-year involvement in Russia, though it divested its 50 percent stake in TNK-BP. ExxonMobil’s most recent earnings indicate a daily output at 4.2 million, which is below the expanded Rosneft’s number projected at 4.6 million.
