About the Company

COVID-19 measures: caring for our people is our top priority


Health, life and workplace safety of our employees have always been our highest priority

Well aware of the life and health risks posed by COVID-19 and the production risks that come with anti-epidemic measures and restrictions, we took active steps to protect our staff and contractors and ensured continuous operation of our production facilities. Our work organisation and planning efforts included, but were not limited to, shift arrangements, strict health and sanitary compliance, quarantine and control measures, work zoning and oversight. We introduced compulsory medical examinations and provided our staff with necessary personal protective equipment. The control measures were in line with statutory and corporate requirements and standards.

In early March 2021, Rosneft launched COVID-19 vaccination for its employees. The Company received the first batch (50,000 doses) of Russian-made vaccine approved by the Russian Ministry of Health. To minimise the risk of infection, we will first vaccinate staff at our major remote facilities such as Yuganskneftegaz, Vankorneft, Bashneft Group and units with a large number of people. The Company has hired a dedicated medical organisation that provides logistics and vaccination in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s requirements, including preliminary medical check-ups and follow-up observation.

Given that the infection rate across the Company is on a downward trend, the epidemiological situation stabilised and mass vaccination began, in March 2021 Rosneft started a phased return of staff to offices.
