MOSCOW (Reuters) - The dispute between Rosneft and Transneft <TRNF_p.MM> is not a matter for Russian President Vladimir Putin to intervene in because it is a corporate matter, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

Russian oil production fell close to a three-year low in early July due to the row between oil pipeline monopoly Transneft and Russia's biggest oil producer.
