Anyone catching the New Year romcom, Christmas Tree 5, from December 22, will be able to see Gazprom Neft’s Prirazlomnaya offshore rig — producing the first ever oil from Russia’s Arctic Shelf — on widescreen: this location, in the Pechora Sea, 60 kilometres from the shore, being the scene for one of the film’s plotlines.

Directed by Alexander Kott, the film’s plot centres around a love story, unfolding in the Arctic Circle, on New Year’s Eve. Konstantin, played by Kirill Pletnev, a safety engineer on the Prirazlomnaya rig, tries to make the first move towards Zhenya (Ekaterina Shpitsa), the girl he’s in love with. But it turns out, while he’s got instructions for every other area of his life, when it comes to love there’s no manual on how to win someone’s heart.

The Prirazlomnaya rig — the only offshore platform in Russia on the Arctic Shelf — is making its debut on the silver screen, meaning everyone across the country can see the sort of work done by hundreds of people — every day, in punishing conditions, a long way from home — in achieving Russia’s unprecedented success in opening up the Arctic.

The most cutting-edge technologies in drilling for, producing, storing and transporting oil are being used on the Prirazlomnaya rig to guarantee the safety of workers and the environment. Gazprom Neft continues to intensify its experience on the Arctic Shelf, developing technologies no less complex or innovative than those used in space.

The Prirazlomnaya rig is not the only Gazprom Neft property appearing in Christmas Tree 5. A later scene centres around one of the company’s filling stations.
