Muhan works for our company in Kazakhstan as project personnel. He has been employed at our company since October 2013. He has served as a well-exploration engineer at the oilfields in Zhanarol and Aktau. Food and lodging are arranged by the company at the oilfields, where a quasi-military management system is implemented. He is unable to leave the worksite during leisure time. The work site is a first-line oilfield.

Other job descriptions: According to Party A’s work requirements, the team will carry out well-logging, perforation, and other technical work as well as perform routine equipment maintenance as needed by the company.

Primary work experience since joining the company: 1. 2013: Joined the company in January and sent overseas and to Kazakhstan for work. Previously, held an internship and learned technical skills at Aktau NB base. 2. 2014-2015: Worked briefly at Zhanarol to fill personnel shortages. 3. 2015-present: Worked at Aktau NB. During this period, he participated in several training programs organized by the company. Meanwhile, he helped the company establish production and profit. As such, he has already become an important technician with the program’s first-line production.

Well-logging technicians are always on the move (车轮上). Traveling to and from the oilfield base to the frontline wells can take 4-10 hours and each shift lasts between 4 and 8 hours. According to Party A’s on-call requirements, there is no difference between day and night or summer and winter. Conditions on the frontline can be grueling, therefore frontline engineers work in shifts. Generally, every two months, the company purchases round-trip flights to Ürümchi. Trips between the oilfield base and airport are facilitated by a company car. Several trips are made each year. When the company faces a shortage of temporary workers, it can result in longer shifts. As for daily communication, the company provides local phone cards; however because [Kazakhstan] does not use WeChat, QQ, etc., workers will occasionally use Whatsapp and similar communication software for communication. During his employment, Mulale Muhan strictly observed the company’s rules and regulations, worked hard, established comradery, and exhibited excellence in every [work] aspect. We hereby declare these statements are true to the best of our knowledge.
