Russia will have to develop the sea shelf in the foreseeable future
Russia will have to develop the sea shelf in the foreseeable future. Still it will not start doing this before 2015, the country's Natural Resources Minister Yury Trutnev told a press conference February 2 in Oslo, Norway. That press conference also involved Norway's Petroleum and Energy Minister Ms. Thorhild Widvey. The Russian Natural Resources Ministry has issued a press release, which says that, in Trutnev's words, all projects pertaining to the study and development of shelf deposits are the most promising aspect of bilateral oil-and-gas cooperation. Sea shelves are Russia's future and another step forward, Trutnev went on to say. The Russian Natural Resources Minister also stressed that Russia was moving to amend its legislation as regards the development of mineral deposits. The approval of the bill "On Mineral Deposits" will enable the country to work in a more comfortable legislative environment, Trutnev added. The Natural Resources Ministry plans to draft a new environmental code this year, the press release reads in part. Environmental-protection issues and those in the field of mineral-prospecting operations are closely inter-linked; and we should work actively in this direction. The Russian Federation would like to cooperate with Norway in the sphere of natural resources and hi-tech production technologies, Trutnev stressed. According to the ministerial press release, Ms. Widvey advocated subsequent Russian-Norwegian dialogue in the north, noting that both countries boasted ample experience-exchange opportunities in this field.
