June 2, 2014

New oil deposits, Ouryinskoye and West-Karabashskoye, have been discovered in West Siberia. Environment minister Sergey Donskoy said the reserves exceeded 45mn tons of fuel equivalent. This means that West Siberia’s reserves are far from depleted and the area remains promising for investors, from the West in particular, said Donskoy.
