Kovtun looks forward to the establishment of infrastructure on the shelf in 2017


Murmansk region Governor Marina Kovtun hopes that “Rosneft” and “Gazprom oil” will continue in 2017 active work on creation of reference bases for Arctic offshore projects.

St. PETERSBURG, 8 Dec. Murmansk region Governor Marina Kovtun hopes that “Rosneft” and “Gazprom oil” will continue in 2017 active work on creation of reference bases for Arctic offshore projects.

“I will not deny that the introduction of sectoral sanctions slowed down the development of Arctic oil and gas projects and did not allow the region to continue this year scheduled formation in the Kola Bay infrastructure support bases of offshore fields,” she said, speaking at the V international forum “Arctic: present and future”.

However, it expects that the company will continue to actively work in this direction in 2017.

“Rosneft” and “Gazprom Neft” continue work on project documentation and plan by 2017 to resume active work in this direction”, — said the Governor.
