SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Igor Sechin, the head of Russia's largest oil producer Rosneft, said on Wednesday he had asked Energy Minister Alexander Novak to provide a smooth exit from a global deal to cut oil production once it expires.

He also said the main objective of the deal was to stabilise oil prices by the end of the agreement.
