I, Atsushi Yamamoto, am honored to have been appointed on 2nd
July by sponsors as General Director of NSRP. I am proud to have the
opportunity to work with my new colleagues at NSRP.
I would like to emphasize several key strategic points and
challenging goals for the ongoing development of NSRP.
NSRP started the commercial production on 14th
November, 2018. I believe you should all
be proud of the fruits of your outstanding efforts. I would like to express my
sincere appreciation and deep respect for the contributions of the entire NSRP
team, the Sponsors and the many others who have cooperated with us.
As of today, you, the NSRP team, have shown significant progress
in enhancing the capabilities of the refinery operations and business. No
doubt, a key mission for NSRP is enhancing the competitiveness of the refinery
business while maintaining safe and stable operations. In order to realize this
basic and essential principle, everyone at NSRP must keep this in mind and
ensure that it becomes part of NSRP’s corporate culture. There are countless
valuable talents and treasures on the team at NSRP. We must use them to full advantage.
Nghi Son Refinery has a very competitive design, with a
technologically advanced conversion unit, as well as a petrochemical complex to
make value added products. Meanwhile we have to consider the current
challenging circumstances surrounding NSRP -- falling crude oil prices,
stagnant regional market prices, updated environmental policies, and so on.
Even under such severe circumstances, without making excuses, we need to
reinforce Nghi Son Refinery’s competitiveness so that we may strive to be a leading
refinery. To achieve this, we need to bring in and implement international
standards and methodology into NSRP management and combine strong individual
capabilities into one team.
At NSRP, we will make
progress on every challenge if we make a united effort. This requires the
support of the DGDs, the GMR, those who have joined NSRP directly, our Experts,
Secondees from our Sponsors, indeed, each and every member of the NSRP team.
Please let me highlight
the strategic and challenging issues facing the development of NSRP:
