The contest was held from 6th to 9th August 2018 at the site of the Company’s production and operations directorate (POD) as well as at the facilities of Bryansk Regional Directorate: Unecha line operations dispatcher station (LODS) and Bryansk loading depot.
The opening ceremony was attended by Aleksandr Bogomaz, the Governor of Bryansk Region.
“We are very pleased to host such an event. The control centre for the Russian part of the Druzhba oil pipeline is located in Bryansk, being one of the main taxpayers of the region as well as our chief social investor. In recent years, a cultural centre has been built in the region; a school and a hospital have undergone a major repair. Sports grounds are being built. These are good examples of mutually beneficial cooperation, which we’re going to continue,” the governor underlined.
Boris Korol and Pavel Revel-Muroz, Vice Presidents of Transneft, visited the contest venues.
“The Company pays huge attention to personnel training, the professional contest being the acme of this major and complex effort. Participants of the Best in Profession contest are the golden link of the entire Transneft system,” said Mr Korol.
“This year, the competition between the contestants was very stiff. As our Company keeps developing, new automation and digitisation processes are being implemented; yet the main element is people who do their best for Transneft to operate reliably 24 hours a day. Only together we can move ahead, developing our system for the benefit of the Company and Russia,” stated Mr Revel-Muroz at the awarding ceremony.
Oleg Bogomolov, Director General of Transneft Druzhba, pointed out in his address, that the enterprise “did a lot for the contestants to show excellent performance and to leave this place deeply satisfied.”
