The Romgaz, Lukoil Overseas and PanAtlantic Petroleum companies, partners in the exploration of the EX 29 East Rapsodia oil perimeter in the Black Sea, gave up their rights on this perimeter, Romgaz informed on Wednesday.

Exploration results were below expectations, so the companies decided not to continue their operations there, after completing their obligations under the concession contract, and decided to notify Romania’s National Agency for Mineral Resources to this effect, Romgaz representatives explained in a release.
