Magzum Mirzagaliyev, Chairman of the Management Board of JSC NC “KazMunayGas”, has held an extended meeting with the CEOs of KMG’s subsidiaries and dependent entities (KMG’s SDEs).
Having heard the reports of the subsidiaries’ CEOs on daily performance and work plans, Mr. Mirzagaliyev made note of some issues requiring special attention. Specifically, the head of KMG instructed the CEOs of Ozenmunaigas JSC, Mangistaumunaigas JSC and Karazhanbasmunai JSC to ensure by the end of this year that the oil production and delivery plan is implemented in accordance with the approved targets.
The meeting paid special attention to occupational safety and injury rate reduction. Mr. Mirzagaliyev emphasised that this task was of priority for the subsidiaries’ management.
To ensure social stability in the region, the Chairman of KMG’s Management Board ordered to initiate the holding of regular reporting meetings with labour teams. He also instructed to take the compliance with the labour law under special control. “This issue applies equally to the employer and the employees. We should prevent any facts of violation of labour discipline and arrangements, as well as connivance of this by line managers,” Mr. Mirzagaliyev noted.
During the meeting, the management of Ozenmunaigas JSC was instructed to solve the problems of emergency power outage, which significantly hinders the achievement of targets.
The head of KMG also noted that scientific institutes should be engaged and up-to-date scientific and production methods should be applied to improve the process of new well drilling and increase the oil recovery factor.
The Chairman of the Management Board made special note of the problem of delayed commissioning of the desalination plant at Karazhanbas field. Mr. Mirzagaliyev instructed to speed up the launch of the facility.
The head of KMG also ordered to intensify efforts to reduce the volume of single-source procurements for all the subsidiaries in the region.
