View Full Version : Practise makes perfect

Plainly obvious this is my first thread but I do have a serious question.

I'm fairly new to Russia having decided to stay on after some independant travel and see what life turns up. That of course will need money and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about opportunities in Sakhalin? I've heard rumours of a new (black) gold strike there and also seen a piece on ITN in September about British oil firms transferring staff from the North Sea. Members of the British council seemed to re-enforce the impression that opportunities are to be had there.

Does anyone know if this is true? Where to go and who to contact? Any clues greatly appreciated as I'm based in Yaroslavl and a bit out of the loop.
