Greeting on the opening of the 22nd Sakhalin Oil & Gas International Conference

September 25, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the participants, organisers and guests of the 22nd Sakhalin Oil & Gas International Conference held in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on September 25–27.

The message reads, in part:

“This meeting is being held on the 90th anniversary of Sakhalinneft, a company that initiated commercial oil production in this region.

Today, the Sakhalin Region is rightfully considered one of the key oil and gas bearing regions in Russia. Lucrative hydrocarbon deposits are being developed here, including offshore fields, and a modern infrastructure is being built for their extraction and transportation. International cooperation is also growing.

Therefore, it is important that your annual conferences bring together heads of energy and transport companies, leading scientists and experts from different countries to discuss a wide range of issues concerning the effective implementation of major oil and gas projects in Sakhalin and the Far East. Sakhalin Oil & Gas is a respected and popular professional discussion platform.

I am confident that you will be able to exchange practical experience, outline plans for the future, and offer new approaches to solving the most pressing industry problems at this forum.”
