Ukraine teams up with Chevron

Ukraine said yesterday it will sign a $10bn shale gas production-sharing agreement with US energy major Chevron next week – its second such deal this year.
Ecology minister Oleh Proskuryakov said the deal for exploration and extraction at the Olesska site in western Ukraine, which follows one signed with Royal Dutch Shell earlier this year, would be signed next Tuesday at a regional economic forum in the capital Kiev.
