Alexey Miller's column
I would like to congratulate you on Oil and Gas Industry Workers Day!
Today it is impossible to imagine the global economy without oil and gas, and Russia – without Gazprom. The Gazprom team as well as hundreds of thousands of gas and oil industry workers do their best to make sure that millions of people have everything they need in modern life – gas, heat, electricity and vehicle fuel, and that the economy receives the needed feedstock and energy.”
Natural gas use as a vehicle fuel will help Moscow keep down land transport fares and make air cleaner in the capital
“For Moscow, Russia's largest metropolis, the extensive use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel is of special significance. Gas-powered municipal vehicles will help keep down transport fares and make air cleaner in the capital. All this will contribute directly to improving the quality of life of every Moscow citizen.”
“The World Summer Universiade had finished just a little while ago, but the sports festival in Kazan went on thanks to the participants of Gazprom's Spartakiada Games. Our athletes showed their best combative skills, strength of mind and willingness to win. You rightfully deserve your prizes. We are proud of your achievements and thank you for the outstanding spectacular competitions that were a real present to the guests of the Spartakiada Games.”
“Gazprom has the greatest respect for Russian historical heritage. That is why we were actively involved in creating the International Center for Archaeological Research at the location of the ancient town of Bulgar.
The equipment of the Center may well be envied by many experts not only in Russia, but worldwide as well. It has everything required for research and restoration. I wish the researches of the Center to unearth new historical mysteries. Let your research arouse keener interest of Russia and Tatarstan's residents in the national history.”
“Sport fosters the best human qualities: the consistency of aim, determination and teamwork skills. These qualities help Gazprom’s employees gain victories not only in sports, but in their careers as well. As for the younger generation, sports competitions foster leadership skills and commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Taking an active part in supporting and promoting mass sports has become a good tradition for Gazprom. Around a thousand sports facilities were constructed and upgraded under the Gazprom for Children program. Over 90 thousand children got an opportunity to go in for their favorite sports every day.
We think it is important to carry on with these activities in the future both on the corporate level and nationwide.”
