The trip was also attended by representatives of municipalities and public organisations of the indigenous small-numbered peoples of the Yamal District.

The event was organised by the Company in accordance with the agreements reached in April 2021 at the meeting held in the village of Yar-Sale, where the parties signed an additional agreement on socio-economic cooperation.

“It is very important for us that when planning the production activities of companies, the voice of the indigenous population of the Yamal tundra is heard. Therefore, in the course of public hearings, we include in the minutes a recommendation to hold personal meetings between subsoil users and residents of the camps. Informing the tundra people about the Company’s plans and exchanging views between the parties is a guarantee of their peaceful coexistence in the conditions of industrial development of the North”, — commented Valery Khudi, Chairman of the Board of the Yamal District Public Movement of Indigenous Small-Numbered Peoples of the North “Yamal”.

“Subsoil use is a complex, multifactorial process, one of the key areas of which is building an effective partnership with government officials and local residents in the regions where exploration and development of deposits is carried out. This is especially important where there are traditional farming territories of the indigenous small-numbered peoples of the North. Over the years of work in the northernmost points of the Yamal Peninsula, we have amassed impressive experience interacting with people who call the Arctic their home. This allows all emerging issues to be resolved through an open, respectful and constructive dialogue”, — said Vsevolod Cherepanov, General Director of Gazprom Nedra LLC.
