EWI Fellow Danila Bochkarev Quoted by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty
In a recent interview, EWI fellow Danila Bochkarev said that shale gas and other unconventional forms of natural gas could play a big role in Ukraine's future. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports that Ukraine is expected to sign a production-sharing agreement (PSA) with oil major Royal Dutch Shell worth an estimated $10 billion to develop the Yuzivska shale gas field, reducing its energy dependence on Russia.
Commenting on the value of shale gas and similar energy alternatives, Bochkarev held that they "can be quite an important source of natural gas and energy for the country."
Bochkarev has recently published an EWI report on energy security solutions, available here.
