Training and Development

JSC Elabuganeft respects the personalities and interests of employees and pays attention to their career plans. Through the skills cultivation, selection and allocation mechanism, we try to create a suitable development channel for every employee.


We give priority to employee training and offer a range of training programs to improve the skill levels of our staff in a variety of ways, such as job-specific training, remote education and skill competitions. We have established an effective training network and remote education network, through which we provide lifelong education to our employees. Besides training, we also provide vocational education. A technician training system is occupied to train frontline teams and cultivate highly skilled staff.

On the basis of promoting all-staff training, our employee training system has evolved over time with better training facilities and innovative online programs in four areas, i.e. management, skills, technologies and international teambuilding. Based on business development needs, different kinds of employee training programs are offered at different levels, resulting in a remarkable improvement in employee’s competency and performance.

Career Development

We pay close attention to employees' career development, and provide a targeted cultivation and development platform to realize the growth of both the Company and our employees.

We continuously improve unified, standard and scientific mechanisms on talent evaluation, performance management, and incentives and restrictions, striving to create an enabling environment for excellent employees to standout and make the most of their abilities. We attach great importance to the growth and development of three categories of employees in management, technology and operations. We also facilitate the introduction of high-level overseas talents. Relying on domestic and overseas projects and scientific research bases, we select young researchers to undertake major technical projects, and provide them with opportunities to fully realize their potential.

Since 2015, we have carried forward the reform of the "double sequences" system for managerial and technical personnel in our subordinate research institutes and oilfield companies, and provided an independent, continuing and stable career path for the technical professionals. To help the technical experts bring their expertise into full play, we set up the skill inheritance network led by the national skill master studios and demonstrated by the company's skill expert studios.

We adopt a knowledge-oriented distribution policy and create an environment encouraging innovation among technological talents. A series of talent-foster programs have been developed or launched, including the Petroleum Scientist Program, the Young Talent Program, the Operator Skill Development Program, the Innovation & Efficiency Enhancement Program and the "Petroleum Master" Program etc. Meanwhile, a total of 54 skilled expert studios are set up, including 14 national master studios, to groom high-level scientific and technological talents.
