The quest for oil begins in Eastern Croatia.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 6th of September, 2018, last year, gravimetric and magnetometric measurements were performed in all three counties within the wider area.
Two years after the signing of a petroleum and gas exploration and oil exploration contract with the Government of the Republic of Croatia, the Canadian oil company Vermilion Energy signed to perform investigation works and is physically moving into the Osijek-Baranja County area in Eastern Croatia.
As Glas Slavonije reports, Vermilion Zagreb Exploration d.o.o., as the Croatian branch of this company, is carrying out research in Slavonia and Baranja [in an area] totalling 4,695 square kilometres, divided into four exploration fields – Drava 4, and Sava 8, 9, and 10.
The “Sava” fields are spread out over Brod-Posavina, Vukovar-Srijem, and Požega-Slavonia County, the exploration area of Drava 4 lies in the northeast part of Osijek-Baranja County, Valpovština, the City of Osijek, and towards Erdut to the border with Serbia, and in the north, it covers the entire area of Baranja, to the border with the Hungary.
As previously mentioned, in 2017, gravimetric and magnetometric measurements were performed in all three of the aforementioned counties, and data from this research was thus obtained. Back at the beginning of May this year, concrete research works ”in the field” of these counties began. Now, at the beginning of September 2018, these works have moved on to the wider Osijek area.
