acquisition of the Usink Oil Refinery. This acquisition would permit us

the industry as well as from giants like Lukoil.”

additional and large deposit of oil on our land discovered by our
neighbor, Lukoil, the Board is reviewing the possibility of a joint
venture with Lukoil. The oil that was discovered lies on the area
