Rosneft, Gazprom to Get Licenses

ST. PETERSBURG — Rosneft and Gazprom will probably get licenses to offshore fields this year, Deputy Natural Resources and Environment Minister Sergei Donskoi said Wednesday.

Rosneft may get five or six licenses, and Gazprom may get seven or eight, Donskoi told reporters. Some of the licenses the companies applied for lie off Sakhalin, he said.
