Despite recent milestone agreements with Halliburton (USA) and Vermilion (Canada), we are not ready to rest and continue to do our best to involve high-quality partners, their expertise and technologies in order to increase production, increase efficiency and build competencies of the company. I would like to emphasize once again that we are completely open for business“.
