RUSSIA – A WEEK OF IMPORTANT ACHIEVEMENTS FOR ITALY IN RUSSIA: NEW OIL AND GAS CONTRACTS FOR 37.6 MILLION EUROS.
During the last week, Termomeccanica Pompe and the Piedmontese SME Sanco, manufacturer of fire-fighting systems, won two contracts under the Novatek Arctic LNG-2 project worth EUR 31.4 million and EUR 5 million, respectively.
These two contracts further increase the already predominant Italian component in the Arctic LNG-2 project.
A further milestone in the oil and gas sector has been reached by the Polytechnic of Turin, which has signed a 1.2 million Euro contract with Gazpromneft and the Polytechnic of St. Petersburg for an industrial research project on big data applied to the extraction of hydrocarbons.
Also last week, the Italian University signed a collaboration agreement with the Skoltech Institute of Technology, located at the most crucial Russian start-up incubator, Skolkovo. The agreement provides for the launch of joint academic activities and the attraction of funds for research projects.
