Naftogaz unit DAT Chornomornaftohaz will extract as much as 3 billion cubic meters of gas annually by 2015 using a Petro Hodovanets platform that arrived in the Crimea last week and a rig that will arrive by year-end, the Kiev-based newspaper said, citing Oleksandr Zeykan, the head of Naftogaz’s oil and gas extraction department.
