Norwegians try to convict Russia of the appropriation of "common" oil fields

Norwegian MP Eun Georg Dale fears that Russia may start to use the “common” cross-border oil and gas fields on its own. In this case, Norway may lose oil and gas reserves located on both sides of the common border in a northerly direction from the ice zone. It is reported by the publication Dagbladet.

According to Dale, companies from Russia received licenses from the state to develop these fields. At the same time, official Oslo decided to abstain from working in this direction so as to “save the ice edge”. The Norwegian parliamentarian thus fears that the Russian Federation will appropriate these minerals and exhaust the bowels, while Norway will not get anything.

To the north of the ice boundary in the earth are oil and gas reserves in transboundary territories. Russian companies are licensed to develop these fields. Thus, the Russians will be able to deflate everything for themselves, and from Norway, while we decided not to touch these reserves

- believes George Dale.

Assistant Minister of Oil and Energy of Norway Tony Tiller believes that after the entry into force in 2011 of the agreement on the delimitation of sea spaces in the Barents Sea, three licenses for working with fields were issued in the Russian sector. However, drilling in these places has not yet been carried out, that is, reserves of natural resources have not yet been discovered. Tiller expects that, if they are found, the Russian side will not develop the subsoil alone, but will do so in accordance with the agreement of 2011.

    Again, these evil Russians, forever stealing minerals from the Norwegians. They have not found them yet, but they are sure that if there is no oil there, then everyone has pumped out the Russians. laughing Surely, they will soon drill a pipe and pump water from a pond in the Harald’s palace.
    As for the contracts, the matter is to review them, to comply with the agreement on Svalbard mass claims. The border agreement signed by Medvedev with citizen Stoltenberg also leaves a lot of questions. So, not the descendants of the Vikings moan about the contracts.
    In general, let them take care of the "ice edge", if you put it on your forehead, they say, it helps. Perhaps it will help to get rid of envy.

    Norwegians try to convict Russia of the appropriation of "common" oil fields

    - Why catch it here ...- Russia itself (or rather its steering) is to blame ...

    In 2011, Russia presented Norway with vast territories in the Barents Sea.

    We are talking about transferring to Norway (by the way, the NATO country) 90 thousand square kilometers of water (formally it is more correct to say the water area, not the territory, but this does not change the essence - the state gives the territory) of the Barents Sea with rich deposits of oil, gas and fish resources. For comparison, the area of ​​the entire Leningrad region is smaller (83,9 thousand sq. Km).

    In terms of the area transferred to Norway, these are six Kaliningrad regions. These are approximately two Moscow regions or two Ryazan regions. This is the area of ​​the Leningrad or Chelyabinsk regions.
    In reality, Russia has lost even more space (the transfer of these territories entails the relinquishment of rights to another 240 thousand square kilometers of Arctic space in the Spitsbergen area. At least, this is what foreign diplomats will interpret and present today),
    Russia ratified this agreement by Federal Law of April 5, 2011 No. 57-ФЗ On ratification of the Agreement between the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Norway on the delimitation of maritime spaces and cooperation in the Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean (adopted by the State Duma on March 25, 2011, approved by the Federation Council March 30, 2011).

    Our State Duma approved the ratification of the agreement by 311 votes against 57. So this decision is directly related to a fairly large number of people from the so-called "elite". Only does this "elite" defend the interests of the state? And if they defend, people, within the framework of a constructive dialogue, want to know the true reasons, on the basis of which the territories were ceded to another country. In the end, some part of the deputies voted against - they, too, had their own arguments.

    Interestingly, the ratification took place, one might say, under the stamp of security. For the first time in recent years, an event of this magnitude was not reported by the central media. More precisely, the information was, but it had a completely different character - something like about the agreements reached with Norway on the disputed territories.

    Norwegian Minister of Oil and Energy Ulu Burten Mue enthusiastically commented on the great news.

    The presented exploration results prove that the southeast of the Barents Sea is the most interesting of the new areas of the Norwegian continental shelf, the minister quotes Barents Observer.

    In the given territories of the Barents Sea, which was ceded to the Norwegians, they found hydrocarbons worth 30 billion euros. This follows from the report of the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). In total, in the bowels of the territory that was left to Norway, hydrocarbon deposits are estimated at 300 million cubic meters - this is almost 1,9 billion barrels in oil equivalent. According to forecasts, the estimated volume of minerals may turn out to be even more - 565 million cubic meters, of which at least 15% is oil, says the NPD report.

    - So today, to talk about it ... - it's all the same what ... - to talk about Alaska ...
    - And what happened with the cart ... - it’s gone ...

      - To cowards and traitors there is no place at a fire in Valhall ...
      - The Norwegians themselves executed their Quisling; and even after that his name "quisling" became a household name ...
      - And our "quisling", who made such a "gift" to the Norwegians ... - has now changed the post of prime minister to ... to also quite respectable post ...

    That’s what the merger of the interests of the Russian Federation with Medvedev and the company that surrendered to Norway vast territories that used to belong to the Russian Federation ... Norway is scarce, and until the man appears in the Kremlin, this will continue indefinitely ... Each louse will require territorial concessions from the Russian Federation, it turned out before, which means that you can still become impudent!
