Various factors have contributed to the establishment of this Community of Professionals which makes our country proud, among which are good education (many of our oilmen are graduates of the well-known Russian State University of Oil and Gas named after Gubkin), international internships and experience sharing, work on technically challenging projects, competitive salaries, industry development, manpower nationalisation programme, and many years of practice. Today everyone who works in the oil industry understands that continuous learning is essential to any career development. Technologies are advancing and even professionals need to keep learning to keep up with the ever changing industry.

Well Control Operations with Block Packs as an Efficient Mean to Preserve the Producing Formation Filtration Properties#4 (88), September 2014
In process of oil, gas and gas-condensate well exploitation, there is a need to ensure the repair works from time to time, which means the need in the well control (capping) operations. When using the traditional blocking liquids (water and salt solutions), their absorption into the reservoir can occur, resulting in the increased volumes of the capping fluid and increase of the relevant work costs. In addition, even a slight absorption of fluid into the reservoir leads to deterioration of the reservoir filtration features and it complicates the well development after the repai

It is still believed in Kazakhstan that satellite communication is an omnipresent phone. Even on advertising billboards an oil-industry worker is often depicted holding a mobile phone and looking meaningfully into the distance against the blue sky background. This image has become so familiar to us that satellite Internet, video transfer, security control on pipelines, helping geologists with the data transfer, online conferences in steppes or at sea and the "SOS" button for anyone who might be caught in a difficult situation - all this seems unreal. Meanwhile, satellite communication is able to significantly optimise the work, save time, effort and money.
