KIEV, November 16 (Itar-Tass) - The Ukrainian government has severed an agreement between the state-run oil and gas company Chernomorneftegaz and Russia’s oil major LUKOIL on the joint exploration and development of oil and gas in the Black Sea.
The now cancelled arrangement concerned the Odesskoye, Bezymyannoye and Subbotinskoye deposits. Chernomorneftegaz had no less than 50 percent in the joint operations.
At the moment Chernomorneftegaz is pushing ahead with exploration and production of hydrocarbons at the Odesskoye and Bezymyannoe deposits. Ukraine hopes that Italy’s ENI and France’s Electricite de France will join it to produce hydrocarbons at Subbotinskoye.
Chernomorneftegaz is a division of the national joint stock company Naftogaz Ukrainy that explores and extracts oil and gas in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.
The company has seventeen deposits on its balance sheet (eleven gas deposits, four gas condensate deposits and two oil ones).
