I congratulate you on a significant occasion – the 25th anniversary of Transneft.
In a quarter of a century, Transneft has become the world's largest pipeline company with excellent business reputation. Thanks to you, oil and petroleum products are successfully delivered to domestic and foreign markets. Today, you are implementing truly large-scale projects that are strategically important for our country.
Tremendous work of engineers, managers, workers and builders, who are talented and dedicated professionals, is invested in each new kilometer of oil pipelines. In many ways, the stable development of entire sectors of the economy, the development of vast territories of our country and, of course, its energy security depend on you.
It is important that the Company is constantly being upgraded, and its oil trunk pipelines meet the most up-to-date standards. In your work you actively introduce advanced technologies, use mainly domestic equipment, pay a lot of attention to energy efficiency and take care of the environment.
You do not only contribute to the development of the fuel and energy sector though. You also do a lot of charity. Your initiatives designed to support large families, senior citizens and disabled people as well as construct schools, nursery schools and outpatient clinics deserve sincere respect and gratitude.
Wishing you new achievements and all the best,
