KYIV -- Oil Gas Systems, LLC - a subsidiary of DTEK Oil & Gas - has purchased the special permit for subsurface exploration of the Svitankovo-Lohivskyi license site in eastern Ukraine for UAH 85 million ($3.17 million) at open auction. Organized by the State Geological Service of Ukraine, the auction was the first one conducted online through the ProZorro.Sale system.

The special permit covers geological exploration and subsequent hydrocarbon production at the Svitankovo-Lohivskyi license site over a 20-year period.

Any production from the site will increase our contribution to the energy independence of Ukraine.”
