Rosneft discovered a new field in the Republic of Bashkortostan, the company said. The geological reserves of the Anastasyinskoye field of C1+C2 category in the amount of 0.6 million tons were recommended by The State Commission on Reserves for state registration.

The Anastasyinskoye field was discovered by drilling two exploration wells in the West Kungak licence area.
