India is looking to double down on its Russian oil imports with state-owned refiners eager to take more heavily discounted supplies from Rosneft. State processors are collectively working on finalizing and securing new six-month supply contracts for Russian crude to India, said people with knowledge of the companies’ procurement plans. Cargoes are being sought on a delivered basis from Rosneft, with the seller set to handle shipping and insurance matters, they said. These supply agreements, if concluded, will be separate and on top of shipments that India already buys from Russia via other deals.
