On 20 December 2018, the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas held the ceremony of opening two thematic study rooms dedicated to the Sakhalin-2 project. Here you can find information about the production facilities of the project, the biodiversity of the island region, and Sakhalin Energy environmental activities.
The large-scale project for the reconstruction and equipping of the university classrooms was implemented with the company’s support and in full compliance with corporate labour safety and business ethics requirements.
Now the specialised study rooms are fully equipped for effective learning. The updated interior will enable students to get familiar with the specific features of the company’s operations — the history of the unique Sakhalin-2 project, the production facilities, the advanced technologies used, and also to learn more about the unique ecosystem of the only island region in Russia.
Cutting the red ribbon, Viktor Martynov, Rector of the Gubkin University, pointed out the significant role of Sakhalin Energy in the Russian economy, which was the pioneer of liquefied natural gas production in the country. He thanked the company for the collaboration and expressed his confidence that the University faculty will continue to strive for new achievements in science and teaching oil and gas specialists.
Roman Dashkov, Chairman of the Committee of Executive Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Sakhalin Energy, stressed the importance of high-quality professional training of the Gubkin University students for the development of the entire oil and gas industry, including the Sakhalin-2 project. “Let our cooperation with you, the key oil and gas educational institution of Russia, be a guiding star to remind you that our country covers a vast territory, but Sakhalin Island, which seems to be far away, is actually near and ready to accept the best students and alumni to work in the most up-to-date project,” said Roman Dashkov to university students.
Pavel Yastrebov, a graduate student at the Gubkin University, who had taken an internship at Sakhalin Energy, said that he had been impressed by the responsible attitude of the company management towards employees: “The company has a large variety of training programmes for personnel; still, they all have one important thing in common — they focus on the preservation of people’s life and health.”
Viktor Martynov, who acted as a guide, drew the attention of those present to the fact that all materials displayed on the Sakhalin Energy Information Board deal with various aspects of industrial and environmental safety.
Today, about 100 alumni of the Gubkin Russian State Oil and Gas University work at Sakhalin Energy.
