The Rusneftegaz office in New York will partially suspend operations from 22 March as a result of the coronavirus outbreak in the city. All personnel currently in New York are to receive a personalized work plan until activities can be fully restored, depending on their current personal circumstances. The majority of staff will be requested to only work remotely from their residences, and to avoid meeting their colleagues in-person until the risk of contagion has minimized. Any workers currently on a work placement in the United States from Rusneftegaz's offices in Russia may be authorized to return to home, but should await instruction before making travel plans. All queries from personnel regarding these changes should be directed to their corresponding manager. As such, our international trading staff shall have a reduced capacity to respond to any telephone or electronic communications for the immediate future, and it is imperative that any urgent messages are sent as soon as feasibly possible to receive a response. We necessitate your cooperation and understating with this matter.
