Rosneft Supports Reconstruction of Rollerdrome for Active Sports in Nizhnevartovsk

30 May 2023

On the eve of the International Children’s Day in Nizhnevartovsk, a rollerdrome for active sports popular with young people was opened. The facility was completely rebuilt with the support of Samotlorneftegaz under a cooperation agreement between Rosneft and the government of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District – Yugra.

The enterprise takes an active part in the social and economic development of the areas of its production activities. Supporting mass sports in the regions of operation is one of the key areas of Rosneft’s social policy. The Company finances the construction of ice arenas, sports complexes and multipurpose sports grounds in the regions where it operates. Rosneft also supports amateur and professional sports and carries out extensive work to promote sports and healthy lifestyles, both among its own employees and the population in the regions of operation.

The rollerdrome has become a significant social facility for the capital of Samotlor. The youth of Nizhnevartovsk took the initiative to renovate it. The renovation has created over 400 m2 of space for a cascade of jumps, acceleration and glide zones and other elements for performing tricks on roller skates, skateboards, scooters and bicycles. The complex has a pool, the only one of its kind in the region, measuring 10 by 15 metres and 1.5 metres deep.

The second part of the rollerdrome is a year-round sports field. It will be used for playing sports in the summer and as an ice rink in the winter. An equipment hire shop has been built with warm changing rooms and a cafeteria.

The facility will be able to accommodate more than 16,000 action sports enthusiast children and adults each year.
