At the end of July, the EU applied sanctions, limiting the importation of equipment for prospecting for and production of oil on the shelf, in the Arctic, and at shale oil deposits into Russia.The US Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security, which is in charge of export control, on August 6 announced an actual introduction of a ban on sale by American companies of specialized equipment for geological prospecting and production of hydrocarbon fuel to the energy sector of Russian under deepwater projects more than 500 feet deep /approximately 152 meters/ on the shelf in the Arctic and in shale oil formations.
