“This became possible thanks to modern 3D seismic research and the professional actions of geologists, geophysicists and drillers,” wrote Chernyshov.

In total, 25 new wells have been launched since the beginning of the year. It is reported that Ukrgazvydobuvannya has several promising wells currently under development.



  1. Petroleum and natural gas development is one of the major reasons, if not the major reason, for the invasion of Ukraine in 2014. Ukraine was preparing to drill in the Black Sea off Crimea when the invasion came. The drill rigs were stolen by Russia.

  2. This is a good development, despite all the hype about fossil fuels. This will help the country in the next winter very much and its industry.
