In 2015, Lukoil discovered the offshore oil fields D29, D33, D6-South, and D41 in this sector.
The government of the Russian Federation issued a decree last year, granting the right to use these subsoil areas of federal significance to the company’s subsidiary LUKOIL-Kaliningradmorneft.
The company intends to continue geological surveys of the Baltic Sea resources during 2017.
Lukoil has also signed a cooperation agreement with Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation Sergey Donskoy, and Head of the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources Artem Sidorov.
One of their proposed measures involves establishing a management system to control the quality of the marine environment at the LUKOIL-Nizhnevolzhskneft operated fields in theRussian sector of the Caspian Sea.
