The Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (KhMAA) — Yugra is one of Russia's richest regions in terms of mineral resources. It is in this region that PJSC LUKOIL was originally established. The name of the Company consists of the initial letters of the names of the three cities: Langepas, Urai and Kogalym.
The KhMAA — Yugra is the land of strong, persevering trailblazers. The history of the West-Siberian oil-and-gas province began 50 years ago, when the Shaimskoye field was discovered. These five decades encompassed monumental events. A powerful oil and gas complex was built, along with new Northern cities that later became true gems of Siberia and Russia. Today, this territory is still considered a pioneering frontier — it has become a launching pad for projects of nationwide scale and an example of dynamic development for other regions of the country.
LUKOIL has intensively exploited the subsoil of the region ramping the production of oil, replenishing hydrocarbon resources, using cutting-edge innovative methods and technologies and, most importantly, prioritizing environmental aspects. The company has always focused on the conservation of the environment and authentic culture of the indigenous peoples of the North.
In 2005, the Government of Yugra and LUKOIL signed their first Agreement on social and economic cooperation. On October 25, 2013, yet another Cooperation Agreement for 2014 — 2018 was signed. In accordance with the document, projects are to be implemented with special significance for the region. PJSC LUKOIL provided financial support to deal with social issues, improve infrastructure of cities and settlements, and implement educational, cultural and sports projects.
Since 2004, the Company has regularly won the Black Gold of Yugra contest in the category "For social and economic partnership in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area — Yugra".

Imilorsko - Istochniy License Area
A subsoil use license for the period of 25 years was obtained in December 2012. The rich deposits of Imilor amount to over 193 mln tons of recoverable oil reserves. The area is of strategic importance both for the company and the entire Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area. All preparation stages are completed by now: from the preparation of the design documentation to the drilling and development of production wells. All necessary infrastructure is in place. In 2015, 51 new wells were commissioned and three wildcats were drilled at the site. By March 2016, half a million tons of oil were produced at the field.
Consistent implementation of its strategy — from the exploration, drilling and oil and gas production to the transportation of final products - as well as the use of best global practices will allow the Company to reach an important production milestone at the fields with complicated geological conditions, and start commercial development of the Imilor-Istochniy license area in 2018, which is a priority for the Company operating fields with declining hydrocarbon production rates due to the Region's depleting resources.
In KhMAA-Yugra the Company has successfully adopted a significant number of unique technologies for the conservation of nature. Pit-free drilling and waterproofing of the well pad foundations are used at the fields located in water conservation zones and specially protected areas. A lot of work is done to reduce emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere, limit the consumption of water and prevent the discharge of pollutants into water bodies. The company pays special attention to the reliability of its equipment and pipelines.
One example of such green technologies is the development by TPE Uraineftegaz of a block located in the Kondinskiye Lakes natural park. The park is a system of lakes and swamps covering 43.9 ths. hectares. The status of a natural parkallows, in contrast to the status of a wildlife reserve or sanctuary, for a limited use of natural resources under special operational conditions which the Company follows strictly. Among such conditions are pit-free drilling, flare-free production, waterproofing of the well pad foundations. There are 19 well pads and a multiphase booster station in the park. Since 1999, park employees together with experts from the Tyumen State University have been conducting comprehensive environmental monitoring. The monitoring network includes three stations to monitor the state of the environment, including hydrological conditions of rivers and lakes, underground water and soil.
