      New polyclinic

      From 2011 to early 2013, Dragon Oil undertook a significant project, building a polyclinic in Hazar, Turkmenistan to provide healthcare services to our employees and the local community. In 2011, Dragon Oil completed the concept design and scope of work and awarded a contract for this US$5mn project to an international contractor. We are pleased to report that the polyclinic building and related infrastructure have been completed and the polyclinic is open to the citizens of Hazar and neighbouring towns.

      We continue to lend support to the local community by undertaking smaller-scale community-support projects, such as the refurbishment of a local school and nursery. We also sponsored a number of sport and art-related events and committees in Hazar, Balkanabad and Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

      State of the art polyclinic in Hazar,Turkmenistan

      As part of our corporate social responsibility activities, we aim to undertake projects that serve the community’s needs and improve people’s living standards as well as bring a better community life. Our primary focus is on such projects for the citizens of the Hazar town, where we have our operations base.

      The construction of a state-of-the-art polyclinic and related facilities, equipped to a high standard and with all the necessary medical supplies, was a big project for Dragon Oil. The services provided at this polyclinic supplement the services offered at the existing polyclinic for the citizens of Hazar, our employees and the families of our local employees. The new polyclinic is located in the vicinity of the existing polyclinic, a hospital and a prophylactic centre.

      The new polyclinic allows to provide medical treatments at brand new facilities with a focus on routine medical treatments, health awareness, disease prevention and health risk management.

      The project called for a construction of a two-storey building with a total of 118 rooms allowing to treat up to 100 patients during two shifts per day. Specialist doctors’ rooms include gastroenterology, ear-nose-and-throat consulting with an operating room, ophthalmology, cardiology among other specialist consulting services.

      Community programme

      Smaller-scale community-support projects include refurbishment of a local school and nursery. During 2013, we sponsored a number of sports, social and cultural events in Hazar; we will continue to do so for the benefit of the community.

      Dragon Oil Cup Tournament

      In 2010, Dragon Oil and the Hazar urban sports committee set up the Dragon Oil Cup Tournament.

      Here is a translation of an article published in Neutral Turkmenistan highlighting the results of the 5th tournament in Hazar, Turkmenistan.

      The tournament launched in 2010 by the petroleum company together with the Hazar urban sports committee is held annually as Hazar open championships in a variety of sports. It quickly gained popularity among young people of this seaside region and the country. Youth sports competitions took place as part of the 5th Tournament for the Dragon Oil Cup in July 2014 with final matches between volleyball teams of Hazar sports school.

      The games were kicked off by indoor soccer tournaments involving football players from Ashgabat and towns and districts of the Balkan region. During uncompromising matches, the team from the Ashgabat Olympic Reserve School won. Football players from Hazar took the second place, Kumdag players came third.

      Basketball players from Ashgabat, Balkanabat, Dashoguz, Mary, Turkmenbashy and Hazar followed the football players in competing for the Dragon Oil Cup. The tournament hosts were undisputed leaders in these heated games. Teams of Mary and Balkanabat took second and third places in the tournament, respectively.

      In the boxing ring of the Hazar Training and Health Centre sportsmen performed an unforgettable show. Boxers from cities of the Balkan region: Balkanabat, Kumdag, Serdar, Turkmenbashy and Hazar participated in the games for the Cup. Young and old came to admire athletes’ strength and dexterity in this courageous sport. The hall was packed. During the preliminary stage, noted by a significant suspense, boxers demonstrated unexpected tactical moves, endurance, perseverance and a strong will to win. The final matches attracted attention of the entire audience. Fans joyfully supported advances of young masters of the “leather glove” and each time welcomed their success by a storm of applause.

      Impressive wins by Hazar boxers in these final matches brought them the first place in the overall team ranking. Sportsmen of Balkanabat received the second overall team place. Boxers from Serdar gained the third place on the podium.

      The awards ceremony for the champions and prize winners of the Dragon Oil Cup Tournament marked the closing of the boxing tournament.

      Introduction from the CEO

      Dragon Oil demands and maintains the highest ethical standards in carrying out its business activities. This is necessary because Dragon Oil’s image is reflected by the people who work for the Dragon Oil Group of companies (the “Group”). Dragon Oil can only build and grow on solid foundations of integrity and strong ethics.

      This Code describes the principles of Dragon Oil’s business ethics and is intended to assist all employees in meeting high standards of personal and professional integrity required of them. The Code applies to everyone who works for or with Dragon Oil, whether as employee, director, consultant, officer, contractor (and their subcontractors) or any other business partner.

      Our ethics policy is straightforward: everyone working for or with Dragon Oil must uphold the highest standards of business integrity and ethics in the conduct of all Company activity, complying with both the spirit and letter of all applicable laws and regulations. Dragon Oil’s employees are expected to avoid any action or behaviour which could create even the perception that such behaviour is unethical, illegal or otherwise improper.

      Irrespective of an employee’s position within Dragon Oil, he or she is involved in the business process including decision-making that affects Dragon Oil and other employees. It can sometimes be difficult to discern if a certain course of action will result in contravention of the provision of the Code. Also, certain situations may arise which may not be covered in our Code of Conduct. If there is any doubt as to whether a certain action is in compliance with the Code or any other Dragon Oil policy, it is expected that an employee will err on the side of caution and discuss the issue with his or her manager. If you have any questions concerning the legality of an action or the meaning of the Code, you should contact Dragon Oil’s Legal Department.

      I am certain that as a team we will uphold the highest ethical standards.

      Thank you,

      Ali Rashid Al Jarwan
      Chief Executive Officer
      Dragon Oil

      Supply chain management: local content

      We believe in conducting ourselves according to the highest standards of business practice. This not only means being true to the Dragon Oil Code of Conduct, which we initiated in 2009; it means looking at how our business impacts the local host areas in which we work.

      Having implemented our Dragon Oil Code of Conduct in 2009 to ensure best practice throughout the company, we followed it with a programme to ensure that our contractors follow our code as well. For every project, we conduct a competitive bidding process where we set out specific requirements defining quality, delivery and integrity. We select suppliers based on the best available offer while also taking into account reliability, experience and any previous working relationship we may have had with them.

      In 2011, we started to encourage actively our suppliers to use locally sourced labour and materials. In 2012, we laid the foundation of this strategy by endeavouring that any tender we receive for major projects needs to comprise a minimum of 20% local content, if at all possible.

      We are also leading by example. In 2010, we allocated land in the harbour area to contractors to allow them to construct platforms and gathering blocks near Dragon Oil’s operations. This not only helped us to supervise the contractors and keep to deadlines, but also had the effect of bringing more local jobs and orders for supplies to the area.

      In 2011, the Dzheitune (Lam) Block 1 and C platforms were built in our ship yard followed by the Dzhygalybeg (Zhdanov) Block 4 gathering platform as well as the Dzhygalybeg (Zhdanov) B platform.

      Use of local content brings benefits to everyone: our employees, our suppliers, the local community and our host government. Development of the Cheleken Contract Area fields means new opportunities for local businesses and new jobs for local people in, for example, construction and transport.

      This helps to stimulate development of the small- and medium-sized enterprise sector within the country. We partner with more than 20 local companies for contractual work and materials supply, and the value of contracts awarded to local companies within the past three years amounts to approximately US$26mn. Currently more than 3,000 local workers are employed by our contractor companies working on infrastructure projects in the Cheleken area.

      How to protect your investment against fraud

      To reduce the risk of becoming a victim of fraud:

      • Ensure that share certificates are stored in a safe place, or hold your shares electronically in CREST via a nominee account;
      • Keep correspondence from the Registrars, which shows a shareholder investor code in a safe place, or destroy correspondence by shredding;
      • When changing address, inform the Registrars;
      • If a letter from the Registrars is received regarding a change of address and there has been no recent move, contact the Registrars immediately. The shareholder concerned may be a victim of identity theft; and
      • When buying or selling shares, shareholders should deal only with brokers registered in their own country of residence or the UK.

      Our CSR strategy revolves around a number of undertakings where we aim to:

      • Develop and empower our Turkmen national human capital;
      • Contribute in a meaningful way to the welfare of the community in Hazar to foster economic prosperity and well-being;
      • Undertake projects, which help to improve the living standards of both our employees and Hazar citizens in general, with a particular focus on health and education;
      • Promote social development and support education;
      • Undertake projects, develop and implement policies to protect the environment in the Cheleken;
      • Prioritise HSE by putting significant efforts into site HSE enforcement; and
      • Strengthen our relationship with suppliers by introducing the Code of Conduct into every contract.

      At the heart of our People First culture is education, training and personal development. We know from experience how unlocking the potential of our people leads to a virtuous circle: when employees achieve more, they enjoy their roles more; and that sense of fulfilment drives even greater ambition, satisfaction – and the company’s growth.

      2014 achievements

      We also seek out the best training wherever it may be. Our Turkmen national employees regularly undertake professional training programmes abroad, as well as take up regular internships at our headquarters in Dubai. The latter also supports operations in the field and promotes knowledge-sharing through continuous learning and access to senior management.

      Dragon Oil Centre of Excellence was launched in April 2010. The Centre of Excellence is dedicated to the training and development of our employees with a particular focus on our Turkmen national workforce.

      The key objectives of the Centre of Excellence are:

      • To enhance and develop the skills and abilities of our employees; To help them develop right skills for more challenging roles in the future;
      • To help the employee reach his/her full potential by setting specific career goals and improving performance;
      • To introduce a continuous learning culture in the company and to provide the employees with necessary facilities to undertake learning;
      • To develop the skills of national employees in both operational and leadership roles to prepare and enable them to assume jobs of higher responsibility as per a defined succession plan; and
      • To provide more and better quality, cost-effective onsite training solutions and facilities for all on-the-job training.

      Внимание, опасайтесь мошеннических сообщений, якобы направленных от имени компаний, входящих в группу «Драгон Ойл»!

      Ознакомьтесь с порядком действий при получении сообщений, которые кажутся вам подозрительными.

      В последнее время участились инциденты с участием организаций, ложно заявляющих о найме работников от имени «Драгон Ойл». Эти организации, утверждающие, что они являются аффилированными компаниями или уполномочены «Драгон Ойл», уведомляют людей от том, что их квалификация соответствует требованиям на должности (местные или экспатские) в «Драгон Ойл» и предлагают перевести значительные денежные суммы в качестве оплаты разрешений на работу, страховых полисов и т.д.

      Обратите внимание, что «Драгон Ойл» (а также компании, производящие набор персонала по поручению «Драгон Ойл») никогда не просят перевести деньги или произвести какую-либо оплату от соискателей на всех этапах процесса найма. Все кандидаты, получившие предложение о приеме на работу в «Драгон Ойл» напрямую или через уполномоченные кадровые агентства, всегда проходят через формальные процедуры найма.

      Пожалуйста, имейте в виду, что указанные выше сообщения являются мошенническими! Они не исходят от компании «Драгон Ойл» или ее материнской компании – «ENOC» и никак не связаны с официальным наймом персонала в «Драгон Ойл».

      Отличительными особенностями таких мошеннических сообщений являются следующие: они направлены не с официальных электронных адресов «Драгон Ойл» (а, например, с использованием электронной почты; написаны с ошибками, с низким уровнем английского языка; на каком-то этапе возникает просьба произвести перевод денег.

      Рекомендуем вам не отвечать на подобные сообщения, а также на какие-либо бизнес-предложения, направленные без вашего запроса, от людей или организаций, которые вам незнакомы.

      Если вы получили такие предложения, рекомендуем вам незамедлительно обратиться в местные правоохранительные органы и предоставить им всю имеющуюся у вас информацию об отправителях (адреса электронной почты, номера телефонов, факсов и т.д.)
