Sakhalin-1 took part in the fifth anniversary Voyage of Grandfather Frost with NTV

Letters from the social rehabilitation centers "Mayachok" in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and "Aly Parus" in Aniva did not go unanswered! Yesterday, we met the envoys of Grandfather Frost at "Mayachok". They handed over a gift certificate. Grandfather Frost himself congratulated everyone via teleconference. "Aly Parus" will also receive presents before the end of the year.

The Sakhalin-1 project helped Grandfather Frost give presents on Sakhalin. Thanks to the support of oil workers, the children of “Mayachok” now have special drying cabinets so that they can dry their wet clothes and shoes after a winter walk. "Aly Parus" received computers that can be also used for studying (especially when distance learning), and for playing during inclement winter weather.

The main goal of the New Year's campaign is to help those who especially need a miracle and magical gifts: special needs children, orphaned children, and families in hardship. In just five years, Grandfather Frost, together with the NTV team, traveled 51,000 kilometers - from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad, visited about 330 social institutions for children, as well as 300 large and low-income families, and presented 500 tons of gifts.

Exxon Neftegas Limited, the Operator of the Sakhalin-1 project, on behalf of the Sakhalin-1 International Consortium, annually supports more than 100 social initiatives in the regions where it operates – in Sakhalin Oblast and in Khabarovsk Krai. In total, since the inception of the Sakhalin-1 project, over 1,600 social initiatives have been carried out for a total amount of over one and a half billion rubles. The Sakhalin-1 Consortium includes the Russian oil company PAO “NK Rosneft” through its subsidiaries, the Japanese company SODECO, the Indian ONGC Videsh Ltd., and Exxon Neftegas Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation.
