Chevron to resume operations in Pungesti after consultations

Tom Holst, Chevron’s country manager for Romania, stated that the operations in Pungesti, Vaslui County, will resume after consultations with the government and “when we will decide that there are safe conditions,” but he avoided giving a clear deadline, bursa.ro informs. “We will communicate with the local community just as we did in August and September: door to door, face to face talks,” the head of Chevron Romania stated, hotnews.ro informs. Tom Holst added that the fracking technique may be used in the final phase of the exploration works, a technique for which the company needs new permits, the aforementioned source informs. Holst stated that he “does not have proof” concerning Russia’s strategies of blocking Chevron’s operations in Romania, and in what concerns the sale of the future production he said that “Romania is the natural market.” The head of Chevron Romania pointed out that he will reveal the composition of the fluid used for fracking when this phase is reached.
