Article 1. Basic concepts

The concepts used in this Law express the following values:

activities in the field of power - types of activity on investigation, development, production, production, processing, storage, transportation, transfer, distribution and use of energy materials and products (energy resources);

investigation in the field of power (or investigation) - the activities performed in the purposes, identical with development, by means of the preposted magnetometric, gravimetric, seismic, geochemical, thermal and radiometric methods and test drilling operations;

development - the activities directed to detection and assessment of deposits or underground storage warehouses of energy materials by means of drilling operations;

energy distribution (or distribution) - procurement of crude oil and oil products, gas, electrical and heat energy and their distribution between consumers;

the energy distributor (or the distributor) - any company performing activities for energy distribution;

the power station - any stationary or portable installation (including and the parcels of land covered by it) used in the types of activity connected with power or for implementation of these types of activity at the required level for storage of required energy materials and products;

the agreement or the energy agreement - the written agreement signed between the parties and determining conditions of implementation of types of activity in the field of power;

the reproduced energy sources - the energy sources which are constantly existing in the environment or continuously created (hydraulic power, wind power, solar energy, geothermal power, energy of biomass, wave energy in the sea and oceans), energy of swelling and attraction, energy of water flows, etc.);

recovery work - recovery of the sites used in energy activities for the benefit of the population and their adaptation to the environment.

Article 2. The sphere covered by the Law

1. This Law covers the following spheres:

types of activity in the field of power (on the energy materials and products specified in Appendices 1 and 2);
