The Company’s goals, priorities and objectives in its cooperation with the regions where it operates are enshrined in the Regional Policy Concept. The concept focuses on carrying out social activities to create favourable conditions for the Company’s activities, improve environmental safety, minimise the manmade impact on the environment, create a comfortable social environment for the region’s residents, including the Company’s employees and their families, and develop cooperation with stakeholders as well as information openness and transparency.

The main tools for implementing the Company’s regional policy are:

  • agreements on socioeconomic cooperation with the authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and municipalities;
  • its own social projects;
  • targeted corporate charity;
  • corporate volunteering;
  • grant competitions for social initiatives among local communities and corporate volunteers.

In 2015, Gazprom Neft signed agreements with the authorities of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District-Yugra, Stavropol Territory, St Petersburg and the Omsk, Orenburg and Tomsk Regions. All told, the Company concluded agreements with the governments of eleven constituent entities of the Russian Federation and 20 municipal administrations in the reporting year. Total investment by Gazprom Neft in regional development as part of the agreements amounted to RUB 2,505.6 million. Among the projects being jointly implemented by the Company and the authorities are initiatives to build and repair social infrastructure facilities, support public associations and sports clubs, and develop other social and environmental projects. In 2015, Gazprom Neft fully met all the obligations it undertook as part of agreements.
