Due to the advanced stage of maturity of the fields and the resulting decrease in production in Slovakia, NAFTA has decided to utilize its experience and know-how in E&P also beyond the Slovak borders. Our focus at the beginning would be neighbouring countries, in particular Poland, Ukraine and Hungary, and the adjoining South-east European & Balkan countries.
Relative to carrying out E&P work programs in partnership, NAFTA gained experience through both successful farmouts and farmins respectively. In Slovakia, partners had joined in the Trebišov tight gas project of the East Slovakian Basin, and in the pre-Neogene project of the Vienna Basin.
Through farming in, eventually, NAFTA had participated in a productive Kazakhstan project, operated by a local company.
