Putin and the President of Vietnam Nguyen Minh Triet in Hanoi. An agreement was reached on the continuation of the joint work of Zarubezhneft and the Vietnam National Oil & Gas Group (Petrovietnam OGC), as well as on the establishment of a new joint company by Zarubezhneft and Petrovietnam for participation in the development of oil and gas fields in Russia - JC RUSVIETPETRO.

RUSVIETPETRO has 14 fields in development: 301 production, 18 injection and 5 piezometric wells currently have a production potential of more than 8.9 thousand t.o.e. per day, which allows RUSVIETPETRO to be among the leading companies in the development of fields in the Timan-Pechora province. The company employs over 1000 Russian and Vietnamese employees. By 2020, the Company has produced over 28 million tons of oil.

The subsidiary company of Zarubezhneft pays great attention to issues of social support and charitable assistance in the region. In 2009, RUSVIETPETRO signed an agreement on cooperation with the Administration of the NAA in solving social problems. Since that moment, a project for the construction of several significant educational facilities has been implemented.

Sergey Kudryashov, the General Director of Zarubezhneft JSC: “The trip of the Ambassador of Vietnam to the Nenets Autonomous Area to visit the joint venture speaks of the importance of cooperation between our countries in the area of oil production. For us, Vietnam is a key international partner for the long term”.
