The KazTurboRemont and ZhigerMunaiService companies are a vivid example of successful cooperation with NCOC and the implementation of and their certification began in 2016 and now, having gone through a difficult way to implement the ASME standard, enterprises can be rightfully proud of the results achieved."

On July 16, the management of NCOC handed over the certificate of ASME to another Kazakh company with a long and successful history, ZhigerMunaiService. Production sites of this plant produce drilling rigs, oil and gas equipment and much more. As the head of the company Rafik Mukhatov noted: "Thanks to cooperation with the North Caspian Consortium, the company has raised its level, and due to constant training and certification the services of the enterprise are in demand in large international companies."

The process of consulting and certification lasted more than a year, and finally both companies received the certificate of U stamp authorisation from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which was founded in 1880 and developed the ASME standard. It allows companies to export their products to more than 100 countries. Certification for ASME and the ability to stamp means that this product has passed all the necessary list of tests and fully complies with international quality standards, and the production itself has everything for successful competition with global brands.
