Bringing new mineral resources on production is believed to benefit rational subsoil management. Such resources include associated water with higher content of valuable commercial components and compounds. The paper highlights existing opportunities with recovery of scarce rare metals from associated formation water. Its production at existing gasfields, and especially in oilfields, is likely profitable thereby benefiting overall price efficiency of core production. The authors reasonably conclude that the absence of formation water in state reserve register and, hence, in subsoil license agreements impedes legal production and processing of associated water and mineral stock assumed to yield valuable components most typical, chemically, of particular fields.
