Strong Business – Strong Russia
Honestly, the conditions created in the Far East as of today are enough for doing business on various levels. <…> There is an arranged system in terms of federal laws – I primarily mean ASEZ – and in terms of special conditions of investment protection and promotion agreements and in terms of regional governments and municipalities

Refining Oil and Gas: Useful Hydrocarbons
Early work has begun on the production of hexene, which is also a semi-product based on ethylene molecules. Its creation and introduction make it possible to create polymers with special, more premium qualities. Today, unfortunately, there is no such production in the Russian Federation. We are highly dependent on producers from Germany and Great Britain, and at the moment these supplies are stopped

Refining Oil and Gas: Useful Hydrocarbons
The current situation accelerated decisions; we will build a 50,000-tonne hexene plant by the end of next year. It is my pleasure to say that this plant will be built using Russian technology, SIBUR technology in particular. The developments that came out of our research centre in Tomsk, in Nizhnekamsk, in Kazan, near Moscow in Skolkovo – they allowed us to start not from scratch

Carbon-Free Energy and the Future of Fossil Fuels
The global climate agenda is creating specific rules of the game – not only with regard to our industry, but also primarily with regard to the extractive industries. Here, we are in effect playing the role of a highly skilled assistant. You did indeed cite examples of cooperation – the result of the work done in Tobolsk. Overall, this involves <...> inter-industry cooperation between oil and gas companies working together on associated gas, on processing by-products created in the process of oil extraction, of condensate stabilization. Now the situation is changing somewhat. <...> It seems to me that <...> with the help of the petrochemical industry, the future of fossil fuels is bright indeed

The Far East: Resource Frontier or Driver of Growth?
As of today, our facility will be getting over 3 million tonnes of feedstock from the Amur <…> Gas Processing Plant. Gazprom set up this largest ethane processing operation. We are developing this resource. This is a unique facility in our country. We mostly look up to the countries of the Persian Gulf – they focus on this light feedstock. Ethane is a precious feedstock that is now used as a fuel alternative. Such a large project for processing ethane and light gases is one of a kind both in Russia and globally, unfortunately

The Far East: Resource Frontier or Driver of Growth?
This is a significant growth point for SIBUR. <…> We are building a gas chemical plant, which is the country’s biggest and one of the world’s biggest, with a capacity of 2.7 million tonnes of polymers. This project is being implemented through close industrial cooperation and a true partnership. <…> Generally, polymer production growth has been exceeding the GDP by 1–1.5% annually over the last 30–35 years.  <…> We have brought various specialists, process operators, engineers, and construction experts from 10 different regions of the Russian Federation

Lessons Learned during the Pandemic – Stories of Business Successes and Failures
Today, the topic of how to create the necessary conditions [for remote work — Editor] is of great importance: eleven thousand laptops purchased; software reinstalled; electronic jobs created. No, we cannot add a separate office room, but creating the right conditions was quite important. Hours of silence, days without meetings, [...] so that people could plan a space for themselves — they are at home after all. This is a rather important ethical conclusion, which we come to, unfortunately, after having made a certain number of mistakes

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
In a small town of Svobodny, together with our partners and with the support of the Ministry headed by Vladimir Vladimirovich [Yakushev, – Ed.], we worked out a system that actually allows us to implement the concession. I am talking about the public-private cooperation, where the funds of the investor go directly into this concession to replace all water supply and drainage pipes. In Svobodnoye, 65% come from us, and by 35% are, respectively, from the public funds. <...> Our holding, a local investor and the local authorities are currently using the concession to build such an opportunity, which will allow 80% of worn-out networks in parts of the districts of Svobodnoye to be replaced by polymer solutions and ensure the economic life of all these networks for another 25–30 years after the end of the concession

The essence of our work with the Ministry, Rosprirodnadzor [Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources, — Ed.] and business is the following: through local systems that are still under way we need to understand where most of the waste is generated — the Minister was right to call it business. It will help us better understand volumes and composition, which is still unknown in most regions as of today

Identifying a Strategy to Succeed on the Global Petrochemical Market
Over the past 40 years, the industry [oil and gas chemistry] has seen steady growth at the rate that was significantly higher than the global GDP growth rate, and, according to industry experts, this trend will continue in the near future.

Breakthrough in the Far East: How to Become a Leader for Growth in Private Investment
We witnessed a evolution of this legislature, namely the extension of its lifecycle as initially the TAD law presumed it would be in operation for 3 years. Taxation code amendments have been adopted in 2017 that extended this legislature to 9 years. Thus, it’s a long-term benefit for the investors working on large scale projects with CAPEX over RUB 100 billion <…> Aside, I’d like to announce that tomorrow we’re planning to sign a basic agreement with Gazprom for the span of a few decades that would cement the intentions we spoke about at various stages of 2017
