"We have signed a roadmap, not only in the field of electricity, but also oil and gas, covering the restoration of oil fields and the development of new deposits," Kovak was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies yesterday.
He did not name any Russian companies that may be involved.
"We attach great importance to restoring the Syrian economy, especially the oil and gas sectors which will certainly contribute to the normalisation of the economic and social situation in the country," said Novak.
In December a Russian business and political delegation visited Damascus to discuss investment and reconstruction with Assad, including oil and gas projects but also electricity, phosphates, transport and trade.
"Russian companies have the moral right to develop large-scale economic projects here," Rogozin said then.
Russia intervened in the Syrian conflict in September 2015 in support of Assad.
