Chevron quits shale gas exploration tender in Lithuania-govt
OSLO Oct 8 (Reuters) - U.S. energy major Chevron has decided to pull out of a tender to explore for shale gas in Lithuania, citing an incomplete legal framework, the Baltic state's government said on Tuesday.
Chevron was the only bidder to explore for unconventional hydrocarbons in the 1,800 square kilometre Silute-Taurage prospect, and the government has recognized it as a winner a month ago.
