Ukraine hopes that the discovery of large gas deposits on Romania's Black Sea shelf will allow it to attract major investors in the development of its own deep-sea shelf, Deputy Minister of Environment and Natural Resources of Ukraine Dmytro Mormul told the Ukrainian Energy Forum in Kyiv, UKRINFORM reports.

"We hope that the discovery of a deep-water gas field in the Romanian Black Sea shelf may enhance the interest of investors in the Ukrainian sector of the deep-water Black Sea shelf, where Skyfska and Tavria areas have been found once," Dmytro Mormul said.

He noted that Ukraine is ready to consider investors' requests for initiating tenders and concluding agreements on production sharing in the Ukrainian deep-water shelf.

"We are ready to work together," the deputy minister said.

According to Naftogaz of Ukraine, the reserves of Ukraine's deep-water shelf are estimated at 3-6 billion tons of standard fuel.

As reported, representatives of the U.S. corporation ExxonMobil and the Romanian oil company Petrom confirmed the deposits of natural gas in the Black Sea shelf around Serpents Island. Experts estimate the fuel reserves discovered at 42 billion cubic meters, which is three times more than the annual consumption in Romania.
