Chairman of the Board NC “KazMunayGas” JSC

Dear Colleagues and Forum Guests!

On behalf of the National Company “KazMunayGas”, I am pleased to welcome partners, organizers and participants of the KAZAKHSTAN ENERGY WEEK 2019.

The organizers’ idea to change the traditional format of the prestigious industry forum is very interesting, because this year various events of Kazakhstan’s energy industry will be brought together on a unified platform. This will definitely give participants an opportunity to discuss at a high level the main trends in the development of the national and global energy, problems and prospects for the development of the oil and gas industry.

The participation of the National Oil and Gas Operator, NC “KazMunayGas” JSC, involved in almost all major projects of the domestic oil industry, in the Forum is an opportunity to demonstrate its achievements and exchange experience with partners. Of particular interest to us is information exchange on the issues of exploration and replenishment of hydrocarbon reserves, new methods of oil production and, especially, digitalization of technological processes.

I would like to note that, taking into account current trends, KazMunayGas is gradually introducing digital technologies in all areas of activity. The company’s digital transformation program for oil and gas exploration, production, refining and transportation helps to improve the quality of asset management, forecasting and modeling processes, and reduce production losses. All this will ultimately serve to increase the operational efficiency of the company.

I am convinced that the KAZAKHSTAN ENERGY WEEK will be useful to all our colleagues, will contribute to strengthening cooperation between companies in the oil and gas sector, as well as to promoting breakthrough ideas and their embodiment for the benefit of the domestic and global energy industry.

I wish fruitful work to all participants of the Forum!
