Congratulations from Mr. Mirzagaliyev, Chairman of the Management Board of JSC NC “KazMunayGas”, on Oil and Gas Industry Workers’ Day!
Dear all, I warmly congratulate you on Oil and Gas Workers’ Day!
This year is particularly symbolic for Kazakhstan’s leading industry. The oldest domestic oil company, Embamunaigas, has celebrated its 100th anniversary. The history of Kazakh oil originates from Karashungil, Eskene, Dossor and Makat fields. Established in Atyrau in 1922 as Embamunai Trust, the company has become the ancestral home of Kazakh oil, raising many glorious oil dynasties over its century-long history. Today, Embamunaigas JSC is one of the leading oil companies in Kazakhstan, which continues the glorious history of the company — over a century Emba’s oil workers have produced more than 188 million tonnes of black gold!
KazMunayGas, which has taken under its wing such strategic areas of oil production as exploration and production, refining and transportation, has also celebrated its 20th anniversary.
This double anniversary has gone down in the history of Kazakh oil and gas industry with the major achievements of the country’s oil workers.
Over the past 20 years, the annual production of oil and gas condensate by the companies of KMG Group has almost tripled. Total production over 20 years has exceeded 347 million tonnes. Refining has increased by 7.4 times. Total oil refined is 227 million tonnes. In 20 years, the company has grown its assets 7.5 times, annual turnover 4 times, capitalisation 7.7 times and annual net profit 5 times. Despite the global crisis, the country is also producing oil steadily.
The current generation of oil and gas workers continues to make a significant contribution to the growth of our country’s economy and prosperity. There are still nimble-fingered and strong-minded people working in the field of exploration, extraction and processing of black gold. Today, KMG Group employs up to 60,000 people. This is our industry’s most important asset!
In congratulating oil workers on their professional holiday, I congratulate the courageous and strong-willed people who work for their homeland in all weathers, whether it is hot or cold. I wish everyone good health, new professional achievements, prosperity and a happy family!
