BEIJING, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Sinopec Corp., China's largest oil refiner, said on Wednesday its subsidiary has agreed to acquire a 25-percent stake in Russian petrochemical company Sibur's rubber plant in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk.

Sinopec International (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd., has signed an agreement to buy 25 percent plus one additional share in the Russian synthetic rubber plant, according to a Sinopec statement that did not reveal the value of the deal.

According to the agreement, the additional share will give Sinopec International (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. a right to veto in corporate business such as increases of corporate assets and changes of corporate executives.

Both parties are considering the possibility of increasing the production capacity of nitrile rubber to 56,000 tonnes each year upon establishment of the joint venture.

The deal is still subject to the approval of the Chinese and Russian governments.
