“Oil fields are not numerous in Crimea but natural gas resources are big enough for such a relatively small region. It has gas condensate reservoirs as well,” he said.
Crimean territory had 44 hydrocarbon fields, seven gas condensate reservoirs and 10 oil and 27 gas fields, the minister said. Five gas and three gas condensate fields were located offshore in the Black Sea. Six more gas fields were located in the adjacent Azov Sea.
