Today one of our employees Yuriy Kalenich is going to retire from KAZ M-I. He has worked in our Company for 16 years.
He joined the M-I SWACO team back in 2006 as a mechanic in Bautino Thermal Desorption Unit (TDU). He was responsible for servicing and maintaining of equipment such as diesel generators, forklifts, excavators, filtration equipment and vacuum units. Later on, he took the role of TDU operator and later grew up to senior operator position. Also, during that period he has supported our unique project for Kazakhstan – Drilled Cuttings Injection (DCI) on Kashagan islands with installation and commissioning of their equipment in Caspian sea.
In 2012 he has been assigned to Thermal Cuttings Cleaner (TCC) on Tengiz as Field Service Operator Sr. Based on TDU experience Yuriy took one of the leading roles during installation, commissioning and operation of TCC unit. Yuriy has spent much time in control module monitoring cuttings treatment process and parameters. He has always been open and shared his wide experience with younger colleagues.
And today his retirement date. It's hard to say goodbye to him for all of us. We want to thank Yuriy for his commitment and performance shown within all these years.
