Dear Participants of the Ministerial Conference and Forum!

On behalf of Tengizchevroil LLP, I welcome participants and guests to the “Sustainable Energy Development” Conference! I am very pleased to participate and commend KAZENERGY for bringing together Energy Ministers from UNECE member countries to have a structured dialogue on this important issue.

This Conference provides a platform for leaders and representatives of energy companies to discuss the way forward for sustainable energy growth.

It is very fitting that Kazakhstan hosts this Conference during EXPO-2017 where the focus is on Future Energy. It is our expectation that Kazakhstan will continue to be a leader in the development of the energy industry building on the success to date – favorable investment climate, implementing ambitious projects, deploying innovative technologies and developing highly qualified personnel.

Tengizchevroil LLP highly values its partnership with KAZENERGY Association and recognizes its role in Kazakhstan’s success in the development of its oil and gas sector.

Congratulations to the participants and guests on the beginning of the Conference! I wish you productive and successful work!
