Irkutsk oil workers helped social facilities of northern villages

December 19

During the winter period, which in northern regions can last up to six months, Irkutsk Oil Company’s employees and equipment regularly come to help remote villages. For instance, the company often clears roads of snow, delivers fuel to allow continuous operation of social institutions, and provides villages with much needed electricity. This winter, for example, specialists from Irkutsk Oil Company urgently restored engineering systems in a school in Bur village (Katanga region) and in a hospital in Verhnemarkovo village (Ust’-Kut region).

During the winter period, which in northern regions can last up to six months, Irkutsk Oil Company’s employees and equipment regularly come to help remote villages. For instance, the company often clears roads of snow, delivers fuel to allow continuous operation of social institutions, and provides villages with much needed electricity. This winter, for example, specialists from Irkutsk Oil Company urgently restored engineering systems in a school in Bur village (Katanga region) and in a hospital in Verhnemarkovo village (Ust’-Kut region). In early December, the acting head of Katanga region asked the company’s leadership to help repair Bur’s school heating system. The school’s water boiler was ancient and its contents were constantly leaking, this problem only worsened by a defective heating system. There was a tangible threat of school freezing as the Bur village was literally cut off from mainland due to harsh road conditions, and there was not enough time to wait for help from Katanga region’s municipalities. However, INK’s management sent a crew of qualified professionals in off-road vehicles and successfully repaired the school’s heating system. Similarly, after the onset of extremely low temperatures this winter, the pipes in Verkhnemarkovo hospital’s water disposal froze, putting the village’s only permanent medical institution under the threat of closure. Luckily, INK’s management was able to direct Yaraktinsky field’s vacuum machine to clear the sewer. Photo: the village of Bur.
