Risks and challenges are part of our every working day. We not only work with hydrocarbons, we do so in some of the harshest of environments: the winter conditions of the Caspian Sea can be particularly demanding.
Safety is therefore a central building block of our culture. We place the highest emphasis on site HSE supervision and safety training. This includes making sure that the necessary personnel protective equipment is fit for purpose, and worn, in every required situation.
As we pursue an ambitious and expanded programme of exploration and production, the safety culture we have instilled so far will serve us well as we scale it up to meet the demands of the future, with zero compromise. With this in mind, the Group has continued to increase the manpower and resources of our HSE function in order to strengthen supervision and control over the key activities of production, drilling, logistics, marine and others.
