The message reads, in part:
“It is rewarding that the company celebrates its anniversary while it is flourishing, showing confident growth and occupying solid positions in the domestic and global energy markets. It is largely thanks to the concerted efforts of your large and tight-knit team, consistent introduction of advanced technologies and effective managerial decision that you have managed in the past years to achieve crucial success in oil extraction, processing and sale, to greatly contribute to the development of Russian regions, enhancing the country’s economic, industrial and defence capabilities, and to translate into reality much needed projects in charity, culture, education and sport.
Today, environmental issues and mitigating the negative impact of economic activities on the environment have a special place on the national agenda. I hope LUKOIL will pay careful and priority attention to environmental protection issues and become an example of caring and thoughtful attitude towards Russia’s natural wealth.”
