OAO Gazprom and PetroVietnam on Nov. 25 signed a framework agreement for the joint development of two fields in Russia.

Nagumanovskoye oil, gas, and condensate field is in the Akbulak district of the Orenburg region, and Severo-Purovskoye gas-condensate field is in the Purovsky district of the Yamal-Nenets autonomous area.
