Knowledge Transfer: A Process Engineer's Story
BP plc has been operating in Azerbaijan since it opened an office in the country's capital, Baku, in 1992. Since then, the oil major has helped Azerbaijan develop its oil and gas industry – propelling the Caspian Sea to become one of the world's leading hydrocarbon provinces.
Rigzone recently caught up with one of BP's Azeri employees – Vugar Novruzov, a process engineer for BP in Baku – to find out about how the skills he acquired working in the oil and gas industry outside of Azerbaijan are helping him in his current role.
Rigzone: How did you first get into the oil and gas sector, and why did you choose the industry?
Novruzov: Ever since a young age I have always wanted to be an engineer. I trained as a chemical engineer at university, with a further subject in oil and gas processing, so the natural progression for me was to move into the sector.
Rigzone: What qualifications/skills did you need before you joined BP and where did you attain these?
Novruzov: I went to university here in Baku, Azerbaijan where I studied chemical engineering with a further subject in oil and gas processing. These qualifications were very helpful and allowed me to secure my position as a graduate process engineer in the UK and also provided a platform for me to extend my career in the industry.
