Sakhalin Energy was announced the winner of the Grand Prix of the Public Relations and Corporate Media Services Contest of Gazprom subsidiaries

The company received the highest award in the information block from Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Management Committee.

At the awarding ceremony in Saint Petersburg, Sergey Kupriyanov, Head of Department - Press Secretary of the Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee , noted that in 2022 the contestants have implemented many brilliant projects for the development of the fuel and energy complex. At this difficult time, when the country is facing new challenges, the companies managed to focus on implementing ideas that unite all of Gazprom's subsidiaries. Sergey Kupriyanov encouraged the contestants not to deviate from this course next year.

A jury of independent experts – journalists, public relations specialists and employees of Gazprom’s Department, which coordinates the company’s information policy and the Gazprom magazine – selected the winners among more than 50 subsidiaries.

Members of the jury noted Sakhalin Energy's systematic approach to covering its activities, which it has demonstrated over the years. This year, the company presented communication strategies on the implementation of the largest shutdown in the history of the Sakhalin-2 project, improvement of health and safety performance, as well as initiatives aimed at developing the cultural environment in the region and preserving the traditions of the indigenous minorities of the Sakhalin Oblast.

Natalia Gonchar, Head of Sakhalin Energy Corporate Affairs Division, noted that stakeholder engagement has always been one of the company's top priorities. Quality information, communicated in a timely manner to staff and external stakeholders, ensures both team support and public trust. “Even in times of global challenges, Sakhalin Energy continues an open dialogue, using modern approaches and finding its own creative solutions. We are proud of the high jury's assessment and grateful to our colleagues at numerous Gazprom companies for the creative synergy and professional support. Together we are making a significant contribution to the development of the country's gas industry,” added Natalia Gonchar.

The corporate competition for public relations services of Gazprom's subsidiaries and organisations has been held since 2009. The competition is aimed at increasing the professionalism of corporate media and developing the creativity and initiatives of PR specialists in subsidiary companies.
