Selected social policy initiatives
In 2019 PJSC LUKOIL opened an interactive training and methodological center in the historical hall No. 25, Oil, at the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy in Moscow (VDNKh). This is the largest multimedia exhibition in Russia devoted to scientific and applied topics, and it depicts the entire production cycle – from hydrocarbon production to refining and sales operations.
This exhibition has been prepared with the help of the most advanced technological solutions at the intersection of the digital and physical world, such as virtual and augmented reality, and holographic theater. The role of oil in human life is shown through the synchronization of the subject, graphical, and multimedia content and is presented through 150 stories. The Oil Pavilion is popular with a wide range of visitors, including children interested in science and technology, students, and experts in this area. The Oil City playground is situated near the Pavilion, featuring play areas called Offshore Oil Production Platform, Oil Refinery, Fuel Truck, and Racing Car and has various sports equipment installed in it.
Traditional educational support programs continued in 2019. Since 2000 we have been sponsoring high-potential students, young teachers, and job training instructors by providing individual scholarships and grants. In 2019 the scholarship program covered 14 higher education institutions and three colleges, and the grant program covered one high school, eight higher education institutions, and four colleges in Russia.
LUKOIL Group entities also support educational initiatives in regions where they operate and implement programs that have wide coverage.
