“After the company’s nationalization we will publicly make a
decision, if there is a large investor such as Gazprom or others, to
conduct this procedure (privatization) as part of an open tender,”
Chornomornaftogaz will be nationalized and become a Crimean company in the very near future, Temirgaliyev said.
“All company assets, including drilling rigs, the fleet, and fields
will be nationalized. The company will be extracting gas in the Crimean
territory on the Black Sea shelf,” he said.
