The Imilorsko-Istochny License Area covers the Imilorskoye + West Imilorskoye and Istochnoye fields. The area is located in Surgut District of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug — Yugra, 65 kilometers south-west of Noyabrsk (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug). The license area offers a significant potential, while the proximity of the Group's well developed infrastructure to the area helps reduce costs and development period. The year 2014 saw commissioning of the Imlorskoye field, being one of the largest new fields in West Siberia. Against a backdrop of dwindling oil production in the region, development of Imlorskoye is strategically important for the Company's sustainable development.
