On December 17, 2013 Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine Oleg Proskuriakov told about the work of the company “Shell” in the Village of Vesele of Pervomaiskiy District Kharkivska Region during his briefing held at the Kharkiv Regional  State Administration.

“Ecological expert analysis of the production sharing agreement agreement is already performed, while the draft Project on geological development was not given for expertise. I can say that public, state and if necessary  international expert analysis will be conducted. Only when we will be sure that all the risks are minimized company will be given a license for geological development works.

Oleg Proskuriakov emphasized that company “Shell” did not begin shale gas development. At the exploration well “Biliaivska-400” works on the hydrofracturing is successfully performed. Public ecologists and representatives of the Ministry visited the deposit and did not find any ecological danger.

 “The first well at the Uzivska area will be drilled in the first half of 2014. Timescales depend on the expert analysis. At the moment works aimed to find the best location for the abovementioned well are in progress” – added the Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources.
