Congratulations on the Day of Oil and Gas Industry Workers!

Dear professors, faculty members and students!

Every first Sunday in September we celebrate a special day – the Day of Oil and Gas Industry Workers. On this day we congratulate everyone who have committed themselves to such professions as geologists, drilling technicians, developers, construction workers, transport workers, technologists and many others aimed to ensure the continuous work of one of the most important industries of our country.

Experience and professionalism, constant pursuit of development and excellence drive the oil and gas industry and allow it to be a locomotive, a model and a benchmark of the national economy. However, most important are people without whom the oil and gas sector would not exist, whose work for many decades allows to be sure of the future – from the household level, when our homes are provided with heat all year round, to the energy security of the country. All is done by you – oil and gas workers!

For more than a century, Russia has been one of the leaders in hydrocarbon production. Daily our talented scientists develop unique technologies, carry out fundamental research and open new horizons in exploration of mineral resources!

I congratulate you on the Day of Oil and Gas Industry Workers and wish you to remain goal- oriented, face the future with confidence and open new horizons for professional development! Be supportive for colleagues, family and the whole country!
