The governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitriy Kobylkin is the leader of the rating of heads of Russian regions. The research was conducted by the center for information communications “Rating” within the project “National rating”, the heads of the country’s regions were evaluated for January and February of 2017. The results of the national rating were received by the results of questionnaire surveys, correspondence and face-to-face interviews of representatives of the expert community.
Dmitriy Kobylkin took the first place in the first group of the national rating. Several events that took place on the territory of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug not only opened new horizons for the region but also received important all-Russian significance. Thus, the gas pipeline Bovanenkovo – Ukhta was input to operation. It is the key object of domestic gas industry. Startup of the oil pipeline Zapolyarye – Purpe, the northernmost in Russia, and the oil pipeline Kuyumba — Taishet also is a significant event. Completion of their building will serve an impulse for accelerated development of promising extractive fields of Yamal and Krasnoyarsk Krai. All these projects in combination are called to provide fulfillment of obligations of the Russian Federation before Asian partners on deliveries of hydrocarbon raw materials.
Participation of the heads of Gazprom and Transneft Aleksey Miller and Nikolay Tokarev in the opening ceremony confirmed significance of the enumerated pipelines. In the mode of videoconference the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin gave the command to start up their work. He specially underlines the role of the built objects in development of the regions, where they are situated.
The experts also paid attention to optimistic forecasts, according to which Russia will not lose the place on the hydrocarbon market during the coming tens of years. With consideration of the key role of hydrocarbon raw materials in wellbeing of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the information about rise in prices for raw materials is very favorable for the region and for the governor.
The agreement on extension of cooperation signed by the governor of Yamal Dmitriy Kobylkin and the head of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov also favorably influenced on the position of Dmitriy Kobylkin in the national rating. Some observers marked signing of the agreement on delivery of venison from Yamal to the European market. Though the amount of this business is not so big to influence on diversification of local economy seriously, but the experts consider that its significance for indigenous population deserves for attention.
As we should note, the first group include the governor of Tyumen Oblast Vladimir Yakushev and the governor of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Natalia Komarova, who took the 3rd and the 13th places correspondingly.
