Rosneft and ExxonMobil opened an oil field in the Kara Sea

Rosneft, together with the American ExxonMobil, discovered a new oil field as a result of drilling at a site in the Kara Sea. This is stated in a press release, published by on the site of a Russian oil company.

Rosneft successfully completed drilling of the world's northernmost Arctic well Universitetskaya-1, which resulted in the discovery of oil in the Vostochno-Prinovozemelsky-1 license area in the Kara Sea, Rosneft said.

The company noted that the drilling was carried out in a month and a half in compliance with all technological and environmental requirements. The new field was named Pobeda.

Rosneft and ExxonMobil began work on the Universitetskaya well in the Kara Sea in early August. However, on September 19, it was reported that companies stopped drilling on the Arctic shelf due to sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russian companies. ExxonMobil later clarified that it received permission from the US government to postpone the withdrawal from the project due to the fact that it takes a certain amount of time for an environmentally friendly winding down.
