“BASHNEFT” holds the seventh place in Russia by the number of oil wells

The company “ROSBUSINESSCONSULTING” published the rating of oil-mining Russian companies by putting new oil wells into exploitation in 2008. This index is rather important because it helps to estimate the prospects of this or that oil company for the future by indirection.

The oil company “LUKOIL” holds the first place in this list and the largest enterprise in Bashkortostan – the JSC “BASHNEFT” stands on the seventh position. During last year the company has put 246 new oil wells into exploitation. This is 75 wells more than it had been launched in 2007.
