The head of the Society of Petroleum Engineers visited Belarus for the first time. The reason for his arrival is Belorusneft’s entry into the international society. The membership allows exchanging technologies with the whole world. There are 83 oil fields in Belarus, 61 of them are developed. The rest became difficult to extract after long years of operation, and the oil wells were suspended. At present, Belarus has access to technologies that will help to extract "black gold" even from such fields in the future.
