The geologic Committee of the Republic has issued to joint-stock company "Intergaz" a licence (for the period of 20 years) for exploring and mining of natural gas and condensate in Maykop field. One of the founders of the joint-stock company "Intergaz" is the company "Kastron" (registered on Virgin Islands and owning 50% of the company capital), that agreed to provide financial assets of 48 million USD within 5 years.
