Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Eurasia Drilling Co., an oilfield services company, plans to complete a deal to buy drilling assets from TNK-BP and OAO Gazprom Neft’s OAO Slavneft unit by the end of the year, about six months later than planned.

The sides are still discussing terms, Alexander Djaparidze, the billionaire chief executive of the London-listed company, said today in a Moscow interview.

Eurasia in February agreed to buy the Slavneft assets for $150 million to increase its share of the Russian market. It said at the time that it planned to close the transaction with Moscow-based Slavneft by the middle of the year.
