BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 29
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Baker Hughes minimized the operational disruption in Azerbaijan in 2020 despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m very pleased how our teams in Azerbaijan reacted to the coronavirus pandemic; navigating lockdowns and market volatility, making necessary changes to working practices, to keep us on track for long-term profitable growth in an important strategic market,” Tommy Kassem, VP OFS, Baker Hughes, Russia & Caspian Region, told Trend.
As the coronavirus crisis evolved, the company acted quickly to protect its employees and the communities in which they live and work, while minimizing operational disruption, noted Kassem.
“Our rapid and flexible response allowed us to continue to deliver on our customer commitments. For example, we swiftly adopted remote working and technologies to keep only mission-critical employees on-site to operate day-to-day service and maintenance operations,” he added.
Kassem pointed out that the results of our HSE performance in 2020 speak for themselves, with oilfield equipment business posting a 24th consecutive year free from lost time incidents (LTI) and zero non-productive time since 2017.
