“In latest years Yamal is experiencing the investment boom – the total amount of investments for several years in a row has been kept at the level of 1 trillion rubles per year. New technologies, innovative materials and equipment are required for large projects to come to life. Often the talk is about import substitution. Therefore, industrial potential of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast is interesting and promising for us”, said Dmitry Artyukhov.
The agreement also provides for cooperation in extension of deliveries of specialized transport machinery: hovercrafts, buses for rotational workers, residential modules in trailers, vehicles for servicing of oil wells, all-terrain vehicles, truck-mounted hydraulic lifts, specialized laboratories, cranes-manipulators and others.

These are mutual deliveries of raw materials and energy resources, specialized equipment for plants on production of liquefied natural gas, chain products, shipbuilding products, steel pipes”, said Gleb Nikitin.
Increase in labor productivity is another area of cooperation. The project “Berezhlivaya Guberniya” (effective province) is being implemented in Nizhny Novgorod Oblast. It provides for optimization of both productions and social objects. This experience can be used in Yamal.
The regions will also cooperate in IT-sphere, exchange information on regional measures of state support and investment climate, share experience in the spheres of subsoil use, labor and employment, tourism.
