MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. A new field was discovered on the Khatanga oil area in the Arctic, Chief Executive Officer of the Russian oil major Igor Sechin said at the meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.
"Preliminary studies in the Laptev Sea zone shows that geological reserves are up to 9.5 bln tonnes, according to tentative estimates," Sechin said.
