Sohpian told The Astana Times in an interview :
- Since we’ve been involved in this niche service in the oil & gas sector in Malaysia and Kazakhstan, we believe Hadid is better suited to provide high-quality services
- At the same time, the group provides long-term planning and solutions to the oil & gas operators in Kazakhstan
The widespread use of oil & gas operations in Kazakhstan has led the country to digitalize the sector by leveraging the benefits of the 4th Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0).
With this in mind, Hadid provides technologies such as predictive maintenance to optimize MRO operations both onshore and offshore.
Speaking about the future of the oil & gas industry in Kazakhstan, the group believes in the future of renewable energy as an alternative sustainable energy source, aligned with Kazakhstan’s pledge at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) to increase energy production from renewables from 3 % to 15 % and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15 % by 2030.
As part of its long-term commitment in Kazakhstan, Hadid is preparing to launch its Central Asia headquarters in Almaty given the city’s connectivity to other main cities in the region and its well-developed business infrastructure and environment.
Hadid, which has 17 years of experience as an engineering services provider, was founded on Sept. 27, 2004 in Malaysia.
Hadid plans to strengthen the Malaysian brand in Kazakhstan as well as bring the Malaysian engineering technology not only to Kazakhstan but also to the Central Asia region.
Meanwhile, Hadid was also invited by the Government of Uzbekistan to explore the business opportunities in the country given its numerous successes and track record in neighboring Kazakhstan.
