NEW DELHI, November 30 (Itar-Tass) —— A delegation of four technical experts from Russia’s national gas utility Gazprom on Tuesday arrived in Sri Lanka to study a possible development of oil and gas fields in that country.
According to Sri Lankan Minister of Petroleum Industries Susil Premajayantha, a group of specialists from the Indian oil company Cairn will join in next week.
In early October, a natural gas field was discovered at Sri Lanka’s north-western coast. The field rests in the Gulf of Manar at a depth of 4,300 meters below sea level.
Talks on the development of this field were held in the framework of the recent Moscow summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
