New oil field discovered in Belarus

A new oil field was discovered in Belarus. It is called Ugolskoye and is classified as hard-to-reach.

However, according to preliminary estimates, approximately 1.7 million tons of hydrocarbons lie at this point of the Pripyat trough in the Gomel region.

It amounts to the average oil extraction per year in Belarus.

Exploration drilling will help determine exact amounts of oil in the deposit. Oil is at a depth of 5 kilometers.
