Attracting quality investors in the Ukrainian oil and gas sector

29 July 2019This year, the government launched a tender for entering into a production sharing agreement (PSA) for the Dolphin oil and gas site on the Black Sea shelf. Only four proposals were received for two months from Caspian Drilling International Ltd., Frontera, Trident Black Sea and Ukrnaftoburinnia PrJSC. The interagency commission could not decide on the winner of the tender until Azerbaijani Caspian Drilling International Ltd. has withdrawn from the tender. After that, Trident Black Sea owned by Ilya Ponomarev, former member of the Russian Duma, was announced a winner. The results of the tender for Dolphin development were criticized by the Association of Gas Producers of Ukraine. And Volodymyr Groysman, Prime Minister, said he would propose to conduct the tender anew as he hoped for a more representative and competitive tender. So how should you find reliable investors in the gas production sector? The main characteristics that should be taken into account when the state enters into an agreement with an investor for 50 years.
