In the oil and gas sector, the reliable operation of machinery is contingent upon the seamless functioning of its individual components, much akin to how the success of a company is inextricably linked to the achievements of its personnel. In this vein, Rusneftegaz is dependent upon each member of our workforce for our continued prosperity, whether that is the engineers, specialists and technicians who oversee our projects, or the administrators who coordinate our operations from further afield. Such accomplishments are also reliant upon those at all levels of our organization, be that the newly employed taking their first opportunity in the industry, or the seasoned professionals who undertake advanced training to hasten the development of their skills. Ultimately, the contribution of hundreds of staff and contractors to our business is invaluable, enabling us to fulfil our corporate targets and continue to grow as an enterprise. Listed below are a selection of testimonials from our employees, old and new, all of whom have a unique insight into our corporation, practices and culture.
