(Corrects the lead to show that 3.7 billion euros to be paid for half of the 14.16 percent stake, not for the entire stake, after clarification from Rosneft)
MOSCOW, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Russian oil giant Rosneft said on Tuesday that the Qatar Investment Authority sovereign wealth fund would pay around 3.7 billion euros ($4.23 billion) for a half of a 14.16 percent stake in the company.
The QIA would become the third-largest Rosneft shareholder as a result of the deal after the Russian government and British oil major BP, the company added. Trader Glencore would retain a 0.6 percent stake. ($1 = 0.8757 euros) (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin and Olesya Astakhova; Writing by Maria Tsvetkova; Editing by Louise Heavens)
