"Star" of the Far East

In the Far East, Rosneft has become an important assistant to the state in providing social and cultural policies

"Star" of the Far East
Now the attention of the whole country is drawn to the development of the Far East. One of the key investors in the region is Rosneft, which has several large projects in the Far Eastern Federal District. And the Far Eastern Federal District itself is undoubtedly the key to the development of Rosneft: more than 35 percent of the company's investments are made in the East of the country. Over the past decade, more than 28 thousand jobs have been created in the region thanks to projects implemented by Rosneft. Each of them is created practically from scratch, and each is followed by investments in human capital, in the social sphere. 
Rosneft accounts for half of all hydrocarbons produced in the Far Eastern Federal District. At the same time, in the Far East, all business lines of Rosneft are presented - from geological prospecting to processing and marketing of final products.

In the city of Bolshoy Kamen, Primorsky Krai, Rosneft has completely modernized the Zvezda shipyard, and contracts have already been signed with a number of the world's largest enterprises for the supply of unique tankers. It should be emphasized, at the same time, that the project itself to create the first modern high-tech shipyard for the company is not core, but it is necessary for the development of the country, the development of the continental shelf and is being implemented on behalf of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.
The rapidly growing volume of orders of the enterprise required the attraction of a large number of specialists from different regions of Russia to the Far East. Now about half a thousand nonresident workers are already working here.
However, there is nowhere to live in 40-thousandth town. Then, Rosneft decided that it would build housing for its employees. So began the construction of six houses on 408 apartments. In 2016 was commissioned the first apartment building: employees of the "Stars" received keys from 20 two-room and 48 one-bedroom fully renovated and furnished apartments.
For many visitors it was a real gift. “My husband works at a shipyard, we traveled around the country, worked here and there, because there are few prospects for shipbuilders. But here a new shipyard is being built, they decided to settle in the Far East. We have children, they have a school, and they gave us a very good apartment, from Rosneft. And before that, they were filming, ”says Alla Veremeeva, whose family was one of the first to receive housing.
In 2017, two more houses were built for Zvezda employees. The residential complex of three buildings is intended for those workers who are involved in the enterprises of the first stage of Zvezda (it was launched on September 1, 2017), or are involved in the construction of a shipbuilding cluster. The administration of the Primorsky Territory says that this project will change the balance of labor and production resources in the entire region.
A real jerk for development could be the construction of a shipyard in the Great Stone: "This is a chance to change our life for the better. Therefore, all the projects that are being implemented today in the development of this basic solution, including the development of related industries, should lead to qualitative changes in the entire urban life. People expect that after this enterprise will be built and begin work, life in the city will reach a higher level, "- says Mayor of the Great Stone Alexander Andryukhin.
Construction of housing for Zvezda shipyard workers is one of the most important construction projects of the year for the entire city. Indeed, by the time the shipbuilding complex reaches full capacity, by 2024, the enterprise will employ more than seven thousand people. In order to resettle all these people, an entire microdistrict will be built in Bolshoy Kamen, intended for Zvezda's workers. It will grow gradually.
He will radically change the city. “As part of the first stage of construction of houses in the new microdistrict, three monolithic apartment buildings will be erected on the site: two 25-storey and one 20-storey high - a total of 746 apartments. Further plans include the construction of several more high-rise buildings, a children's clinic, preschool and school institutions. Topographic works have already been completed at the site, engineering and geological surveys have been carried out, a preliminary project for the planning of the territory has been developed, ”the mayor's office says. In addition, a new infrastructure is being created in the city - a gas pipeline, an electrical substation.

The creation of the necessary social infrastructure in the city of Bolshoi Kamen is part of Rosneft's comprehensive program for the development of the region.  

One of the most promising projects in the Far East is Sakhalin-1, where Rosneft is a member of an international consortium that has produced more than 82 million tons of oil and 19 billion cubic meters of natural gas. At the same time, several world records were set at once (for example, the longest wells in the world were drilled). According to experts, until 2055, budget revenues from Sakhalin-1 will be about 6 trillion rubles. To monetize the gas reserves, Rosneft plans to build a plant for LNG production in Sakhalin together with its partners.
And, of course, it is difficult to overestimate the contribution of Rosneft to the development of Sakhalin. Apartments for residents of the Far East are one of the main directions of Rosneft's social policy. For about 15 years, since 2004, the company has been participating in the implementation of a program for the resettlement of citizens from dilapidated and dilapidated housing in the Sakhalin Region. A total of 24 residential buildings with 310 apartments were built. The company's expenses amounted to more than 800 million rubles.
For example, Rosneft is implementing a large project to relocate former Sakhalinmorneftegaz employees from the villages of Katangli and Vostochnoye to new housing. Now in one of the settlements of the Sakhalin region - Nogliki - the last house is being completed under the Rosneft program on terms of co-financing with the local budget. Residents of villages who have no development prospects, living in dilapidated and dilapidated housing, receive new modern apartments in the south of the region.
"Well, of course it's good that the apartment is there, I lived in a barrack all my life. I worked in the oil industry, then the village was closed, but where do we go? The house almost collapsed, it's good that Rosneft has not forgotten about us, "says one of the migrants Anna Ivanova.
Thus, in the Far East, Rosneft bears a social burden not only in relation to existing and developing industries, but also in relation to those employees who have already devoted their efforts to the benefit of the country's economy.

On Sakhalin, Rosneft also attaches great importance to the revival of the spiritual heritage, the strengthening of moral principles in the life of society. With the support of the largest company in the capital of the region, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ was completed. 
The company almost completely assumed the difficult task of making the main idea in the architecture and interior decoration of the temple: the transfer to the Far East of centuries-old traditions of the spiritual center of Russia - the Holy Trinity Sergius Lavra. Conceptual solutions in the iconography of the cathedral are based on the ancient Russian tradition. For example, on the perimeter of the cathedral there are unique mosaic panels with scenes from the life of saints. Five-tier iconostasis with a height of 15,5 meters and a width of 18 meters is made in Sergiev Posad. To adhere to the canons of icon painting in Moscow, a special Art Council was created under the chairmanship of Archimandrite Luke (Golovkov), head of the iconographic school of the Moscow Theological Academy. "A mosaic was ordered in Jerusalem," - says the story of the construction of the parishioner of the temple, Dmitry Kurnosov.
"The temple really decorated the city and together with a large memorial complex has already become a landmark and a place of attraction for the guests of the regional center. It is noteworthy that the ceremony of consecration of the cathedral was held by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill. Touch the divine on the day of the liturgy decided about five thousand residents of the city, keep the Lord of the sacrifices, "- said local historian Maxim Sukhanov. 
The construction of the cathedral took six years, and today it is the largest temple in the Far East. At the same time, it can be visited by more than a thousand parishioners, the total height of the building is 70 meters, and the area is 5,5 thousand square meters. m. To complete the construction of the Cathedral in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Rosneft sent 420 million rubles.
The authorities of the region highly value Rosneft's contribution to the development of the city. "We witnessed an epoch-making event that will forever go down in the history of Orthodoxy in the Sakhalin region: this is the opening and patriarchal consecration of the Nativity Cathedral in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. It was created thanks to the efforts and assistance of Rosneft and its President Igor Sechin. Many thanks to them from all the Sakhalinites. The appearance in the regional capital of a new cathedral is of great importance for the spiritual strengthening of our Far Eastern borders, "said Oleg Kozhemyako, head of the Sakhalin region, at the opening of the church.
It should be noted that over the past seven years with the active participation of Rosneft, more than 170 Orthodox churches have been restored, rebuilt, restored or rebuilt throughout Russia.
But Rosneft does not leave its attention to the development of physical culture. So, the company allocated 300 million rubles for the construction of 5 ice arenas in the Primorsky Territory and 80 million rubles for the development and promotion of football in Khabarovsk.
"Rosneft" provided gasification of the village of Belgo Khabarovsk Krai, invested in the construction of an automated gas distribution station and a gas pipeline. In the village of Belgo, Komsomolsky district, the gas supply system was solemnly launched. By "blue fuel" connected rural school, as well as 90 houses erected after a devastating flood.
According to Vyacheslav Shport, the governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, it would be impossible to gasify a remote settlement in a short time without the support of the Russian president: Vladimir Putin gave the appropriate instruction during the "direct line" with residents in 2014.

"Now this is one of the most comfortable and comfortable settlements not only in our region, but in the entire Far East," Shport said. Gas is supplied to residents of Belgo from the main gas pipeline "Okha-Komsomolsk-on-Amur", which runs near the settlement. Inside the village there was also a pipe. The cost of work exceeded 160 million rubles, almost entirely allocated to Rosneft.

When "social responsibility" is expected from big business, it is not a question of one-time charitable actions, but of a full-fledged development strategy for the region, where production is being developed, about raising the economy and living standards, about investing not only in industrial capacities, but primarily in human capital. The largest investors, who have come now to the Far East, realize their mission quite clearly. The next confirmation is the strategic projects implemented by Rosneft here. Only for 2016 year in the social programs in the Far East, the company's investments amounted to more than 1,7 billion rubles.
This approach of big business, by and large, is the only possible for many Russian regions, which for the time being can not make large investments in social development without the help of the federal center. In the Far East, Rosneft has become an important assistant to the state in providing social and cultural policies.
