Gas extraction in east may be profitable

On August 13, the Pravda daily wrote that gas storage company Nafta Gbely sees some prospects for natural gas sources in the Východoslovenská nížina lowland section of eastern Slovakia.

Last year, the company extracted one-third of its output, or approximately 45,000 cubic metres of gas, in eastern Slovakia, and said it expected to extract much more over the next three years. At the current price of Sk7 per cubic metre, it could present a profitable venture for Nafta Gbely and its shareholders. SITA
