The first oil well exploration in the Montenegrin submarine will be established in the spring between Bar and Ulcinj, about 26 kilometers offshore, the Ministry of Economy confirmed.
By the end of next year, it will also be known whether Montenegro has significant amounts of oil for commercial use, “Vijesti” writes.
Montenegro has granted concessions to foreign companies to seek oil.
The ministry recalled that, in accordance with the obligations under the concession contract for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, Eni-Novatek dealers completed 3D geophysical surveys of the Montenegrin submarine on blocks four, five, nine and ten in November and December last year.
"The processing of the collected data is being executed in stages, it is still underway and it is expected that it will be completed by the end of the year," the Ministry of Economy said.
