At the same time he forecasts that the annual oil production will be on the decrease for the next twenty years.
"Current oil production in Ugra amounts to 277 million tons, by 2020 it will be 250-260 million, by 2030 - about 220 million", Mr. Filippenko stated in his interview to the Novosti Ugry (Ugra News) newspaper.
