Rusneftegaz can today publish the latest incarnation of our website, which has been radically revised to improve the user experience of the site and offer additional information pertaining to our corporation and its commercial operations. The changes, which have gone live with immediate effect, have resulted in a substantial redesign of each of our webpages in a more minimalist style, primarily to suit a more modern aesthetic. This initiative, which was instigated at the behest of the staff at our international office, should also be a significant upgrade to the mobile edition of the website and the speed at which both it and the main desktop version load. While this is unquestionably a major enhancement over all prior renderings, it must be noted that this has not been at the expense of the content we issue. Hence, none of our preexisting features have been removed to facilitate these improvements, ensuring that all relevant maps, images, and tables have been retained for later use. In fact, this update has yielded a notable amount of new resources being added, mostly related to career opportunities with us and further details regarding our corporate structure. As before, we shall endeavor to provide routine updates via the news section, which maintains an extensive archive of all our affairs over the course of the past decade. We believe that this, in conjunction with all the other materials we have disclosed, actively demonstrates our enduring commitment to trading in an orderly and transparent manner. Following this transformation in our online presence, our Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Aleksandr Filyurin, commented:
“As a growing and ambitious company, Rusneftegaz is always looking to hire the best candidates for the job and looking for new partners to work with, so it is always very important to make a good first impression in this business. Using this principle, a good website is very important for a company of our stature. I have been very impressed by the work done by my colleagues in the technology department; they understand these principles in their entirety. What makes it an even greater achievement is that Kuznetsov implemented this himself; he was proactive and did all this work alongside the regular demands of his job. I am very proud of him. It is men like him that make this such a great company.”
The new site has been designed and built internally by our Director of Information Technology, Mikhail Kuznetsov, who created the previous iteration of this website five years ago. To do this, he utilized the architecture of the earlier rendition to ensure that the modifications only took six weeks to implement from project commencement to completion. Once again, he will bear responsibility for the ongoing management and maintenance of this, and all associated matters, on a permanent basis for the foreseeable future. However, although this modernization has undoubtedly been a considerable improvement to our online identity, we can also simultaneously disclose that we are currently forming plans to work with a third party to develop a new site in the months ahead. Our leadership has been contemplating this proposal for some time, and now believes that it is in our long-term interests to establish a platform that illustrates our continued success. Whilst an announcement as to which firm we have opted to partner with will be forthcoming at the pertinent time, we will work diligently regardless to guarantee that this website remains the best resource available with respect to Rusneftegaz and our activities. Any queries about these amendments, or any other questions referring to our enterprise and its digital media, should be directed via the usual channels if necessary.
