North Energy is already developing the Norwegian part of the shelf in the Barents Sea together with Russian company Lukoil. Fur future projects, North Energy will look for a Russian partner, Vice President for organization and communication Kristin Ingebrigtsen told Izvestiya. "The Barents Sea is the main area of work for us, and we plan to enter the Russian shelf in the future," the daily quotes Ingebrigtsen as saying.
