Court returns 30% stake in Sakhalynske deposit to Nadra Ukrainy
The Kyiv Economic Court has terminated a contract for the sale and purchase of a 30% stake in Sakhalynske gas condensate field (Kharkiv region) between Nadra Ukrainy and Golden Derrick Ltd., recognizing the state company's right to this share in the company, the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has said.
The contract of 2007 was terminated due to the non-payment by Golden Derrick for the purchase.
