Jupiter Energy is a Kazakh focused oil exploration and production company. The vast majority of the Company's workforce are based at its Operational Centre in Aktau, the port city located on the Caspian sea in the Mangistau Oblast.
Aktau is an approximate 1.5 hour drive from Block 31. The Aktau office is responsible for all day to day functions including Drilling Operations, Geoscience, Engineering, Finance, Legal and Administration.
The Aktau team is currently made up of 5 professionals and a number of Aktau based sub contractors that work under the leadership and supervision of the Aktau Management Team who in turn report as a group directly to the Group CEO. It should be noted that Aktau staff numbers have been reduced significantly (from ~40 people) to reflect the fact that oil production was shut in from February 2015.
The organisation is very conscious of the need to combine international and local experience and the leadership team is built on the philosophy of being able to think and act across borders, blending autonomy with corporate governance, discipline and control.
