the Companies will be responsible for non-observance of licence agreements

Rosprirodnadzor will check up activity of the companies which buy licences for deposits that then them to sell, forgetting about the obligations registered in the licence agreement. It was declared yesterday by a deputy head of service Oleg Mitvol. He has warned against participation in new auctions of the company which have no enough means for working out of deposits. However, experts doubt that the official can reproach participants of the market with gross infringements.

by words g - on Mitvolja, there were many cases when the foreign companies win auctions on working out of mineral deposits in Russia, but is real it are not engaged. by means of other companies they deduce on IPO and then bargain these deposits - has told g - n Mitvol. He has added that thus they often do not meet a condition of licence agreements.

in it are engaged not only foreign participants of the market - has noted g - n Mitvol in conversation with daily, not utochiv names. we know, whom we mean, let it will be a surprise, - he has told. - we check those companies at which is not present either means, or possibilities to develop a deposit .

Observers of the market name some companies which work on the Russian deposits and bargain on foreign platforms. As analyst IFK " has explained daily; Solid Denis Borisov, it Sibir Energy, owning idle actives (among them Western - Salymsky, Vadelypsky and Verhne - Salymsky deposits of Salymsky group in Hunts - the Mansijsky autonomous region, belonging joint with Shell the companies Salym Petroleum Development ) And also the basic extracting a daughter SE Magma .

Analysts specify also in company Imperial Energy which Russian actives are in the Tomsk region, and Urals Energy. Two largest stocks on volumes and branch Urals Energy extraction (Joint-Stock Company Petrosah and Joint-Stock Company Arktikneft ) Are on island Sakhalin and in Nenets autonomous region, the company owns actives in Timano - the Pechora pool (including in Nenets autonomous region and Republic Komi) and in Republic Udmurtiya - tells g - n Borisov. However it has no the information on observance or non-observance of conditions of licence agreements by them.

however, participants of the market believe that nature protection department cannot show serious claims to these companies. The general director of Association of the small and average oil and gas extraction organisations AssoNeft Elena Korzun in conversation in daily has noted positive experience IPO of independent manufacturers of oil. companies Nord Imperial and West Siberian Resources have successfully spent IPO for attraction of means for development of deposits, - tells g - zha Korzun. - Today IPO the Russian companies became a sign of a transparency of the market, instead of way to earn on sale on higher price . Analyst GK Region Valery Vajsberg believes that practice IPO with the subsequent resale remained in the past. today at the high prices for oil and gas it is more favourable to develop deposits, - he has told. - the investor demands their development without which beginning it is difficult to send the company on IPO .

Analysts do not exclude that the statement g - on Mitvolja can be regarded as the prevention that cheaply got deposits can cost much in case of infringement of licence obligations. At a meeting with journalists he also has informed that auction on one of deposits and gathering for participation will soon take place will make 72 thousand rbl. For the foreign companies this sum is insignificant, however it does not mean that it is possible to break requirements of the licence agreement, - it has explained. - it is not necessary to be surprised that we then will come and we will ask that is made .
