Rosneft is ready to continue work in the Arctic independently. This information was given to journalists by the president of the company Igor Sechin. As he notes, the company will continue drilling in the Kara Sea anyway. It is good if partners are going to continue participation. If not, the company will continue independently, as he notes.
Igor Sechin gave the answer to a question, if cooperation with Gazprom is possible on the shelf in the Arctic. According to his words, cooperation is possible with everyone, including Gazprom, as ITAR-TASS informs. As he notes, Gazprom is a very strong company. The main thing is to make agreements with it. Thus, everything is solved easily.
Earlier the federal agency on subsoil use recommended Rosneft and Gazprom to unite their efforts for development of arctic fields. As we should remind, by the results of drilling of the well Universitetskaya-1 in the Kara Sea, Rosneft and ExxonMobil discovered the new field Pobeda in September. International companies were busy in the project. However, because of the sanctions, further cooperation with them is complicated.
