MOSCOW, October 12 - RAPSI, Dmitry Shchitov. A court has postponed until November 1 its hearing of the Obneftegaz oil company's bankruptcy case, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).

The Tyumen Regional Commercial Court said the company's bankruptcy case should be heard by a panel of judges as the bankruptcy appeal was filed before the amendments to the bankruptcy law came in force. However, the court decided to put off the case after it failed to compose a panel.

The court in August held for the bankruptcy trustee's petition to move the bankruptcy hearing to an earlier date. The court initially planned to hear the case in November.

The court commenced the administrative procedure against the company on May 4.

Media earlier reported that former Sibneft top manager Fyodor Khoroshilov owns Obneftegaz.
