MOSCOW, Sept 3 (Reuters) – Russia’s Surgut will launch its Shpilman oil field in Siberia on Thursday, the Russian government said on its website.
In a statement, the government said that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev plans to hold a video conference later on Thursday during which Shpilman oil field will be launched.
In June, Russian news agencies quoted Surgut’s CEO Vladimir Bogdanov as saying that Shpilman was expected to produce about 50,000 tonnes of oil in 2015.
