MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s federal agency for subsoil use will submit to the government proposals concerning Rosneft’s additional bid to explore and develop offshore Arctic fields, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on Wednesday.
“Rosnedra is now considering these applications. The government has received no reports yet. I think that these reports will be submitted rather soon,” he said.
Rosneft has already obtained licenses for 12 sections on the Arctic shelf.
Deputy Natural Resources Minister Denis Khramov said on Tuesday Rosneft and Gazprom are simultaneously bidding for three offshore deposits.
The ministry plans to divide licenses and brief the government about the results.
