Leader of oil- and gas-rich autonomous region sees vast opportunities

MOSCOW -- Japan can play a big role in the development of natural resources in the Republic of Sakha, the largest autonomous region of Russia, leader of the republic Yegor Borisov said in a recent interview with The Nikkei.

Sakha has huge reserves of natural resources, with estimates of about 300 million tons of crude oil and over 10 trillion cu. meters of natural gas, respectively 1.6 times and 100 times the amounts Japan consumes annually.
