Our people are the ones who provide the energy that we put to use on the job each day.
In particular, Eni is working together with universities to develop initiatives through the establishment of Master's Degrees in Engineering (Petroleum Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino), in the field of geology (Petroleum Geology at the University of Perugia) and in HSEQ at the University of Pisa.
Our people are the factor enabling our company to maintain its high level of excellence and meet the challenges of our business. This is why it is important to prepare them well, so they can independently face the challenges of the energy sector. Courses are made available to local employees working for Karachaganak and Kashagan projects at the Eni Corporate University (Master MEDEA), along with training paths designed in collaboration with Italy's top universities.
We also work with universities in the countries where we operate. Thus, withing the framework of the Memonadum on Cooperation, in 2018 Eni and our Corporate University launched a two-year Master's degree program in Petroleum Engineering for Kazakh British Technical University (KBTU) in Almaty, in accordance with international standards in oil business. The curriculum, designed jointly with the local teaching staff, Eni Corporate University, the Universities of Basilicata and Turin, is being successfully implemented. In September 2019, the program will be further enriched, by adding a new Master program in “Industrial Project Management and Engineering”, first of its kind in Kazakhstan.
The state and industry, in particular, face a fundamental question - the connection between the education system and the needs of the new economy. The World Economic Forum Initiative on Development of Human Capital is helping to solve this issue. As part of this initiative, in 2016, the WEF Oil and Gas Steering Committee selected Kazakhstan as a country for development and implementation of a pilot education project specializing in petroleum engineering. The aim of the 4 year project is to bridge the gap between the skills of today's graduates and the industry’s future.
Within the framework of this initiative, the Bachelor and Master degree programs for petroleum engineers are being implemented by Eni and Partners jointly with Colorado School of Mines (USA), at the premises of Satpayev University and Nazarbayev University (NU).
One of Eni's established, long-standing programs is dedicated to youth: Kazakh children are hosted at Cesenatico, an Italian seaside resort on the Adriatic coast on an annual basis. Every year over 160 Kazakh children from disadvantaged families have the opportunity to spend time in the pleasant environment of the Italian coast, participate in diverse health and entertainment events and take excursions to different Italian cities and historical sites. The program has been running for two decades and covered over 3,200 children coming mainly from environmentally sensitive areas.
In 2018, AC Milan, one of the world's most famous and successful football clubs, brought its newest and most innovative training methodology to Kazakhstan for the first time. Eni arranged for children from orphanages of Akmola region to participate in the project. For a whole week, Italy's top football coaches with a great experience in the junior division, trained the teenagers. On completion of the football camp, each participant was awarded a personal certificate from the AC Milan Academy. The second season in 2019 covered children from orphanages and rural schools. The selection was made based on a contest. Kids made videos explaining why they should be the ones chosen for AC Milan Football Camp. Eni received Best Partner Award from Best for Kids Foundation for this project. Eni was marked for its continuous collaboration in organizing a unique football camp in Kazakhstan.
On the 12 June 2019 Eni’s subsidiary Agip Caspian Sea B.V. has signed a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Eni, the Italian Embassy in Kazakhstan and the Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilyov. The MoU envisages cooperation between the three parties for the opening and running of the Italian Culture Center (ICC) for the purpose of promoting the Italian language and culture in Kazakhstan, through courses and other initiatives, with the goal of strengthening the relations between the countries. The ICC inauguration took place in the Eurasian National University, the largest Academic institution in Kazakhstan committed to teaching of foreign languages. The Center was named after Enrico Mattei to pay the tribute to his input into culture.
Eni considers safety one of the most relevant issues for the sustainability of a company and promotes action on behavior and processes, as well as action to improve preparedness and emergency response capabilities. We want to share our safety principles not only with our company but also with countries where we operate. The number of road traffic crash victims in Western Kazakhstan Oblast (WKO) is of concern to both the Oblast authorities and the people. In this regard, the WKO Akimat announced the year of 2019 as the year of road safety and intends to achieve a steady reduction in the number of road accidents and victims on the Oblast’s roads. To implement such large-scale program, WKO Akimat in partnership with Eni and Shell signed the Memorandum of Cooperation on Road Safety. Advisory support during the implementation of road safety initiatives was entrusted to the experts of EASST Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport.
The purpose of this MoC is to study the situation in the Oblast on road safety and to further implement a number of initiatives to reduce road accidents and improve road safety in WKO. Project activities include training of related stakeholders, safety audit and development of strategy for 2025 on WKO road safety.
Eni also contributes to sustainable development of the regions through its partnership in Kashagan and Karachaganak projects. With the “dual flag” approach, Eni aims to cooperate with host countries in order to seize new opportunities for economic and social development in an increasingly complex global environment. Listening and involving local communities are key prerequisites for sustainability and building mutual value. Thanks to this model, which is rooted in the formula developed by Enrico Mattei, and has become known as the “Mattei Formula”, the partnership focuses not only on the economic value of the resources of producer countries, but also on concrete support for sustainable development, particularly on the energy front: a distinctive feature that enables us to establish a mutually beneficial relationship and build mutual respect.
200 Social and Infrastructure Projects have been completed by NCOC at Kashagan between 1998 and 2018. Cumulative spend on such projects has thus reached 620million USD. The funds for construction of schools, kindergartens, hospitals, sport facilities, as well as utilities such as roads, electric power and water supply lines, and other infrastructure designed for the benefit of community, are split equally between Atyrau and Mangystau regions, where North Caspian project activities are centered.
“Karachaganak Petroleum Operating” total cumulative amount of investment into local infrastructure development exceeded 368 million USD at the end of 2018. Working towards sustainable development, social and infrastructure projects are regularly implemented in the West Kazakhstan Oblast. The funding is primarily utilized for health, education, culture and sport facilities. Quite a number of new schools and kindergartens have been constructed, as well as hospitals, roads and public utility facilities.
