MOSCOW, October 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The government has so far not received any proposals from private companies regarding offshore operations, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said.
“As for private companies, I have instructed the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Federal Agency for the Management of Mineral Resources to work out proposals with state-run and private companies in order to understand the terms on which they are prepared to assume obligations,” Dvorkovich said on Monday, October 22.
“When we understand that, then we will be able to come up with substantiated proposals,” he added.
“So far we have not got such information from private companies,” the deputy prime minister said.
He noted that such proposals would also be necessary for making decisions on liberalisation of access to offshore fields.
“We work with state-run companies in this issue very specifically. But we’ve got nothing from private ones, and this explains why it is not possible to make decisions on the matter,” Dvorkovich said.
