Ukraine may tender another two gas fields for development

Slobozhanske and Foroske gas fields may be tendered for development.

Ecology and Natural Resources Minister Oleh Proskuriakov has said about this in an interview to Kommersant Ukraine.

“Perhaps, in the future, Slobozhanske and Foroske fields will be tendered. However, it should be remembered that there are no many large international players, ready to invest in development of mineral resources. And as concerns those, who have already come to us, it is the main thing now to complete the signing of agreements with them. Since we have tendered the Foroske gas field, but there were no those wishing to develop it. We have filled the market with our offers,” he said.

Proskuriakov expressed conviction that if the developed Yuzivske, Oleske and Skifske fields give the forecasted stocks, Ukraine could boost gas output by 30 billion cu m and refuse from its imports.
