Thursday, March 17, 2022
Vagit Alekperov, President of PJSC LUKOIL, and Natalya Komarova, Governor of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District – Yugra, signed an additional agreement for 2022. The signing took place today in the city of Kogalym (Yugra region) in presence of Valentina Matvienko, Speaker of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, and Vladimir Yakushev, Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Ural Federal District.
The document provides for further support of the region's social sphere. Among other things, the Company will continue construction and reconstruction of public amenities and utilities in Kogalym, outfitting a ski track in Langepas, beautification of public areas and yards in Urai, and creating an active leisure zone with a ski resort in Pokachi.
The Company also plans to repair a sports school stadium in Mezdurechensky settlement, to outfit yards in Kondinsky municipality, to build sports complexes in Nizhnevartovsky and Surgutsky municipalities. LUKOIL will also aid the Charity Fund for Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia and Russian Far East and continue to organize LUKOIL's Social and Culture Projects Contest. In total, social investments in the region will amount to about 1.5 billion roubles.
"LUKOIL celebrated its 30 years anniversary. These years were the years of creation for the Company, led by Vagit Alekperov, its one and only President. LUKOIL has become one of the most successful private firms, both in Russia and globally. And nothing was given to LUKOIL on a platter – it is a completely self-made company. Over the years, the scope of drilling, well development, oil and gas extraction has greatly increased. Nowadays, LUKOIL makes significant contribution to the economic, social and financial development of our country. The Company could serve an example of how one must treat people for many other large private businesses," noted Valentina Matvienko, Speaker of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.
"Even under external economic limitations, LUKOIL will fully deliver on its commitments to the state and society. For us, Yugra has always been an area to implement pioneer social projects and create important culture facilities. Over years, this attitude constantly improves quality of life of Yugra people and makes its cities more attractive for tourists," said Vagit Alekperov, President of PJSC LUKOIL.
