Geographically surrounded by Russia to the north, India in the south, Central China to the east and the Caspian Sea to the west, Central Asia has made strides in recent years to exploit its fossil-fuel resources following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The ex-Soviet republics of Central Asia, specifically Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, boast plentiful oil and gas reserves, and the offshore Caspian region is the primary energy hub for these countries' burgeoning exploration and production operations.
Maintenance technicians work across all areas of the oil and gas industry, and they are generally hands-on workers in the field. Maintenance technicians maintain, inspect and troubleshoot tools and equipment to ensure proper upkeep and servicing is done. A technical certificate or strong mechanical background are beneficial for these positions.
