A business session was held at St. Petersburg Mining University as part of the Russian-British Raw Materials Dialogue. The leaders of the relevant companies of the two countries discussed potential prospects for trade and investment cooperation.
The business meeting, on January 30, was attended by a delegation of the UK Department for International Trade in Russia, headed by its director John Lindfield, university rector Vladimir Litvinenko and representatives of Russian and British companies. Among them are Gazprom Neft, PhosAgro, RIVS, Smiths Detection Russia, Rotork and others.
Within the framework of the business session, the core companies held presentations of technologies, equipment and services that can be applied at all stages of extraction, transportation and processing of natural resources.
“This business session is of great importance to us. We are ready to share British experience and provide infrastructure solutions in the mining and oil and gas industries. Great Britain is undoubtedly a pioneer in the industrial revolution, which was due to the development of the mining sector. We are constantly working on the development of innovative technologies to solve the most important tasks facing the world industry at all stages of the life cycle of fields. This applies to production in subsea wells and offshore fields, oil and gas processing, preservation of enterprises and field remediation, and many other solutions. As you know, London is a center for financing projects in the mining industry. We are steadily investing in this sector in different countries of the world and plan to further develop this type of partnership, including with Russia,” said John Lindfield.
