Opening the conference, Aleksey Sitnikov noted the significance of meetings in such format and thanked the representatives of the companies for socially responsible policy they conduct in the region.
“This year we decided slightly to change the form of conducting of the conference and invited representatives of the company’s subsidiaries, those people, who work directly on the territory of the region, in order to discuss the received suggestions. We are ready to discuss in more detail the main directions of cooperation, which in the future will have strategic character in development of the Yamal Peninsula, development of transport, gas-engine and social infrastructure of the region, in the sphere of environmental protection”, Aleksey Sitnikov said.
The participants of the conference discussed the suggestions of subsidiaries of Gazprom, which the government intends to consider in the near future. Transfer of equipment to gas-engine fuel is among them. In 2019 the authorities of Yamal together with the companies plan to develop “the roadmap” on creation of objects of gas-engine infrastructure and transfer of machinery park of road and communal services and public road transport to compressed natural gas. The director of the department of transport and road economy of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Maksim Pershikov drew attention to availability of such experience in Yamal. The town Nadym became the pilot platform.
“Such filling station has already been built in Nadym. In our turn we allocated funds for purchase of 15 buses running on gas-engine fuel for needs of the municipality — Nadymskiy district from the budget of the Autonomous Okrug. If number of such gas stations grows in the region, we will only welcome it”, Maksim Pershikov said.
The participants of the conference also considered suggestions from both sides on other directions of mutually beneficial cooperation, which will be included in the general agreement between the government of the Autonomous Okrug and the company Gazprom.
