Vagit Yusuphovich Alekperov, the President of oil company “Lukoil”, about Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov
“The engineering genius of V.G. Shukhov won the world recognition. In the perception of many people the famous steel tower in Shabolovka has become its visual embodiment. But for us Vladimir Grigorievich is the founder of oil business, the field that used to be and will be the basis of Russia’s economic prosperity.
The first oil pipeline, pumps for oil pumping, the first pipeline to transport kerosene and reservoirs to store oil products, the first tanker barges, oil processing and the creation of cracking – its all V.G. Shukhov. As a matter of fact, we develop his engineering ideas when today we increase the extraction, lay pipelines, build tanker fleet, increase the depth of oil processing.”
