Ukrgazvydobuvannia announces tender to attract investors to restore over 1,900 liquidated wells
Public joint-stock company Ukrgazvydobuvannia has announced a tender to attract investors to restore production of fossil fuel from over 1,900 liquidated wells of the company on the ProZorro e-procurement system.
According to the conditions of the tender, gas produced from the restored wells and the wells themselves will belong to Ukrgazvydobuvannia, while the investor will receive the fixed fee for each cubic meter of produced gas. It is planned to apply production enhancement contracts (PEC).
The company has negative experience from joint operations when best wells were given to private companies and the state did not receive profit from them. This would not happen with the wells proposed at the tender," the press service said, citing Ukrgazvydobuvannia Head Oleh Prokhorenko.
Ukrgazvydobuvannia, 100% owned by Naftogaz Ukrainy, is the country's largest gas producer, providing about 75% of the country's total gas production.
