One of the priority activities of KAZENERGY Association for the human resources development is implementation of the projects aimed to increase the labour sources performance.

This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the successful implementation of KAZENERGY Education Program, aimed to train young people in the professions that are in demand in the energy sector. The program is implemented with the active participation of the leading oil and gas and energy companies of the country.

KAZENERGY is provided with the scholarships and grants under the program of NC “KazMunayGas” named after Safi Utebayev, scholarships of Chevron, educational grants from subsoil users, career guidance works are performed, contests for the development of innovative projects, intellectual games, debate tournaments and other events are conducted to stimulate youth for creative and professional achievements. 

Within this it should be noted that since 2015, NC “KazMunayGas” suspended the implementation of the scholarship program named after Safi Utebayev, the founder of Kazakh oil and gas industry, established in 2009.

In this connection, paying tribute to the memory of the outstanding figure in the oil industry of Kazakhstan, KAZENERGY Education Program and SHEVRON Company announce the assignment of the name of Safi Utebayev to CHEVRON scholarship program.

To date, this program has consolidated the status of a long-term and popular activity for the support of Kazakh students. We are sure that the restoration of S. Utebaev's nominal scholarship will be assessed positively.
