Museum exhibition employs unique objects and multimedia technologies to tell about the history of Russian oil industry and of LUKOIL's place in today's fuel and energy complex.
Sergei Sobyanin said:
- There are no oil rigs or oil fields in Moscow, but there are many people in the capital who develop academic science, applied science, and education, and who work for the country's oil industry
- Therefore, of course, the 300th anniversary of the oil industry is also a significant event for Moscow
- If the 1st museum, which we opened at VDNH, was more devoted to educational processes and told about oil production, exploration, transportation, processing, then here is the history of Russian oil industry, starting from the 1st Baku rigs and ending with modern oil fields, processing
The 700 sq. m. exhibition space consists of 21 thematic zones:
- World of Kerosene
- World of Petrol
- Nobel Brothers Oil Production Society
- Technological Revolution of Engineer Schukhov
- LUKOIL World and others
It has one-of-a-kind artefacts, such as memorial collection of a great Russian engineer V. Shukhov, documents and personal belongings of legendary industry leaders (I. Sedin, N. Baybakov, V. Shashin, V. Filanovsky, V. Grayfer, L. Rovnin, I. Gubkin) and other eminent oil workers and geologists.
The museum features a number of original technological solutions: an immersive zone with a 360-degree screen, promo visors with 3D-holograms of LUKOIL's notable facilities, as well as an elaborate grand model with video projections devoted to oil production in the Russian Empire.
