I congratulate you on the 25th anniversary of the Сompany.
Transneft celebrates its anniversary on a high note, as one of the world's largest midstream companies and a Russian business leader. In recent years, you have implemented a number of strategic projects that have opened up prospects for the development of new fields, facilitated the diversification of energy supply routes and strengthened our country's position in global markets. These significant results, the Company’s high standing and good business reputation have all been achieved thanks to the precise and well-coordinated work of Transneft’s team.
I would like to note that Transneft makes a significant contribution to the development of Russian regions, their social and industrial infrastructure, and supports vital charitable and public projects and initiatives.
I expect that the Company will continue to confidently increase its competitiveness, expand cooperation with foreign partners, implement promising innovative programs and introduce technologies that meet the latest standards of environmental friendliness and energy efficiency.
