"We see great prospects in this area based on the results of previously conducted geological studies in this region. Our fields with proven potential are located nearby. The development of Dnieper-Donetsk Basin blocks requires application of modern technologies. To do this, we have strengthened our internal expertise and are attracting experienced international partners who will help attract the latest developments to Ukraine," Maxim Vityk, Naftogaz Exploration and Production Division Director of Strategic Projects, said.
