The second international forum «Arctic projects – today and tomorrow» will take place in Archangelsk on the 23rd and 24th of October. It is being organized by the Association of oil and gas suppliers «Sozvezdye» (constellation), the government of Archangelsk Oblast and the Northern (Arctic) Federal University.
More than 250 people will participate in the forum: experts of federal ministries for energy, industry and trade, the governments of Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Archangelsk Oblast, Murmansk Oblast, the companies «Gazprom», «LUKOIL», «Atomflot» and the United Shipbuilding Corporation. They will discuss prospective infrastructural and oil-gas projects, problems of development of the continental shelf. A separate session will be dedicated to personnel and scientific potential of northern regions, as it is informed on the portal sozvezdye-forum.ru.
As it is noted by the director of the association «Sozvezdye» Sergey Smirnov before the forum, the international sanctions push oil and gas industry to wider participation of Russian and regional partners and contractors. For regions participation in such projects is a chance for economic development and cooperation, an opportunity to receive new knowledge and technologies.
