Thermal engineer DTEK Naftogas

Earlier, women were forbidden to work in the oil and gas sector. Today they can do it. Nonetheless, there are few women at DTEK Oil and Gas facilities because you often have to go to other towns and villages of Poltava Oblast and work in every kind of weather. Yet, I really like it, because our company provides a good deal of opportunities for professional development.

I started working in this sector 19 years ago and I’ve been with DTEK Oil and Gas for three years. Over this time, I helped introduce modern heat engineering technologies at all production sites of the company and reconstruct Machukhska gas treatment plant. I am answerable for heating, ventilation, heat and water supply, as well as air conditioning at Olefirivska, Machukhska and Semirenkivska gas treatment plants. Today, I develop projects and supervise construction, assembling and commissioning operations for all heating systems. I always try to find effective and out-of-box solutions that are crucial for the modern gas production.
