Chevron to Far East

VLADIVOSTOK, Far East -- U.S. oil company Chevron is planning a geological survey in Russia's far eastern district of Primorye to assess the size of oil deposits, Primorye Governor Yevgeny Nazdratenko said at a news briefing Thursday.

Nazdratenko said in Vladivostok that agreement on a visit to the region by top Chevron officials was reached in the United States at a session of the Gore-Chernomyrdin commission.

He added that the top management visit could take place this summer and Chevron geologists were due to come to Primorye in April or May.
