"The experience, knowledge and expertise of Stephen allowed our team to identify priority directions of the Company's development, which formed the basis of the Tryzub perspective program of production growth. Together with Stephen, we have created a transparent system of planning and accounting of production processes. Owing to this, we managed to reach real indicators of commodity gas and keep them at the level of previous years, even in conditions of significant natural decline. Aziza has changed approaches to work in the areas of labour protection and environment: these directions have turned from functions to values of the Company. We have started to implement the modern standards on individual protection means that comply with the international standards. We have taken serious steps forward in minimizing the impact of gas extraction on the environment. The attitude of Stephen and Aziza Baldwin to work entrusted to them has made it possible to change not only the production approaches but also the culture of the Company as a whole. Together with all the staff, I thank Stephen and Aziza for this contribution and wish you success in your future career," said Andrew Favorov, Director of Integrated Gas Business of Naftogaz of Ukraine.
