KYIV, Sept 9 - Naftogaz plans to focus its efforts on the growth of new hydrocarbon resources and, for this purpose increases the role of the geological unit, the director of the Exploration and Production division of the group, Oleksandr Romaniuk, said.
"It all starts with geology. We want to create the best geological expertise in the region, we believe that we can do it. We have a strong geological school, which began to be supported by legionnaires, including our guys who worked in Western companies. We now have a new head of the geological direction, who grew up in foreign oil and gas companies. But we do not need expertise for the sake of expertise. We want to radically change the situation with the resource base, so we are changing the structure," he said.
