Lukoil is one of the major investors in Uzbekistan’s fuel and energy sector. According to the leadership of the company, the cooperation has succeeded owing primarily to the favorable investment environment reigning in Uzbekistan, the guarantees of economic stability as well as the vast capacities of the basic sector in the country.
President Islam Karimov noted that the effective conduct of geological prospecting works has allowed the Lukoil Petroleum Company to provide for a growth in hydrocarbon reserves and secure the status of a reliable partner with a high potential of cooperation.
