LUKoil Spends Big in Africa

LUKoil has invested around $1 billion in investment projects in West Africa, said Andrei Kuzyayev, head of Lukoil Overseas.

"We aren't ruling out developing the gas business in the region at future stages. Russia has a chance in Africa, and we shouldn't let it slip by." Kuzyayev said, Interfax reported.

Lukoil Overseas acquired the rights to become the operator of the offshore exploration projects CI-101 and CI-401 in the Ivory Coast and Cape Three Points Deep Water in Ghana from the Vanco group at the end of May. Lukoil Overseas also signed an agreement to acquire Vanco Exploration.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
