NOVY URENGOI, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said the company objects to granting access to private companies to gas field surveys in the offshore zone.
"As for the gas fields, Gazprom objects categorically: we see no answer to the question why it should be done; there is no problem today," he said.
During the conference, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev asked the question about expanding the number of companies that could work in offshore zones. Miller also noted that Gazprom had no plans to give any segments of its licensed fields to other companies. "Gazprom will not give away its offshore work to anyone," the CEO said.
