KazMunaiGas Chairman of the Board Lyazzat Kiinov and the president of LUKOIL Vahid Alakbarov have signed a memorandum of understanding and a general agreement on cooperation in the field of personnel management to study the aromatic hydrocarbon production technology in Astana today.
"A memorandum of understanding between KazMunaiGas and LUKOIL lays the foundation for cooperation between the companies in studying geological and geophysical data of free unlicensed onshore and offshore sites in Kazakhstan," KazMunaiGas said earlier.
The relevant program has been implemented since November 2011. Atyrau Oil Refinery experts have been trained at the LUKOIL-Permnefteorgsintez and LUKoil-Volgograd plants.
LUKOIL employees plan to study KazMunaiGas' experience in professional standards development.
About 46 employees of the Atyrau Oil Refinery are planned to be trained this year.
