In Moscow, U.S. Strives for Greater Share of Oil Exports: United States energy secretary, met with Kremlin officials Tuesday to relay the concerns of American energy companies about Russia’s investment climate, and added that Russian oil exports to the United States should be “ten times” what they are currently.

In an effort to revive flagging energy cooperation between the two countries, Mr. Bodman met with his counterpart regarding long-delayed oil pipeline to Murmansk; potential joint projects in liquefied natural gas; and ways to improve the investment environment, perceived as hostile since the Russian government partly renationalised its largest private oil company, Yukos.
