LUKoil plans $5Bln Investment in Uzbekistan

LUKoil, Russia's second-largest oil producer, plans to invest some $5 billion in projects in Uzbekistan over the next five years, local media reported Wednesday.

The news came a day after talks between the Central Asian country's president, Islam Karimov, and LUKoil CEO Vagit Alekperov.

The privately owned company has invested $3.2 billion in Uzbekistan's oil and natural gas sector since 2004, including $500 million in January-September 2013.

LUKoil is currently engaged in three projects in Uzbekistan with a cumulative gas production of 20.5 billion cubic meters.

… 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.
