Medvedev congratulates Shell on 125 years in Russia

Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev has sent a letter to Shell, congratulating the oil giant’s 125th anniversary in Russia. You can read the full letter below.


Dear friends,

2017 is a special year for your company, as it marks 125 years since Shell first came to Russia. Please accept my sincere congratulations on this remarkable anniversary.

It was in this country that the Samuel family company essentially first decided to go into the oil business. It achieved incredible success, becoming one of the world’s biggest oil companies. Shell has never lost touch with Russia. During World War II it played an active role in supplying oil products and food to the USSR. War veterans remember this and are grateful to all those who brought victory closer.

Today Shell is firmly integrated into our national economy and is one of our biggest foreign investors. Its companies and joint ventures are involved in various business areas: from exploration and production of mineral resources to the manufacture of fuel and lubricants and their sale at filling stations. The construction of Russia’s first LNG plant on Sakhalin, which uses cutting-edge technology, became one of your company’s largest projects. Shell’s support helped open the door to Russian energy resources in the Asia-Pacific Region, which substantially strengthened energy security in the Far East and overall in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Friends, our partnership has stood the test of time. I am confident that this remarkable anniversary of our successful, mutually beneficial cooperation will give a fresh impetus to take it even further and foster new ideas for joint progress.

I wish the many thousands who make up the Shell team good health and the best of luck in business.

Sincerely,

Dmitry Medvedev
