The information on the evolution of functions in the area of industrial, environmental safety and labor protection was presented to the meeting.

In particular, a project is being implemented related with the accounting for HSE factors in targeted business processes, a personnel training system is being developed with the introduction of a risk management system in the field of HSE, ISO standards, and the processing of internal regulatory documents are planned.
The Board of Directors considered plans for crude oil production and geological and technical operations for 2019. The plans provide that main volume of additional production will be ensured by the developments in such areas as drilling, hydraulic fracturing and the use of enhanced oil recovery methods. The approved production plans will be consistent with the “Strategy 2030” and can be adjusted if the Russian Federation concludes a new agreement with OPEC countries or its members on the level of crude production in order to achieve a balance of supply and demand at the world oil market.
The Board of Directors meeting also considered a number of other issues of the Company's activities.
