The introduction of Belarusian oil recovery enhancement methods at a pilot site in the Lirik Sago field is under consideration. The preliminary agreement on cooperation in this area was reached during a recent visit of the delegation of the Indonesian state oil and gas company Pertamina to Belarus.
