Valeriia Martyshova

Lead Document Controller in Ruspetro Oil Production Company in Moscow, Russia


Can you tell us a bit about you? 


My name is Valeriia Martyshova, I am 33 years old.  I was born in Tambov, a small Russian city.  I travelled a lot for work, and I was even lucky to live and work for a couple of years in Dubai. 


I have now returned to Russia, and I have set two goals to myself: to become a Document Control Manager and to start a family as I feel that my time has come (someone said that it is impossible to reach both goals simultaneously – but I would like to prove that I can do it).



What is your current role? 


I am a Lead Document Controller in Ruspetro Oil Production Company in Moscow, Russia.  I established and maintain the Document Control process on the Projects from the very beginning including development of Document Control procedures. I also manage the EDMS integration and implementation. 


Recently, we have been facing the challenge of establishing technical archives, and this is something I am working on right now: it is very difficult but interesting. I actually like solving difficulties as they allow me to grow as a professional.  


I also created a group of Document Control Professionals on Facebook where I can share my experience with other Document Controllers.


Can you describe your professional experience? 


I have worked for more than 10 years as a Document Controller on different project phases (pre-FEED, FEED, EPC, ASB).

I started my career as a Document Control Assistant on the construction projects for offshore oilfields in the Caspian Sea. 


Then, step by step, I was promoted to the Lead Document Controller position.

My life totally changed when I started working for Total EP Russia Company on a very interesting project “Kharyaga Oil Field Construction”, which was located behind the Polar Circle (a place where temperatures in winter are usually below minus 50°C).


Then I worked for Middle East Projects for a few years (Dubai,UAE and Basra,Iraq).



Which Consepsys course did you attend and when?


I attended the Certified Lead Document Controller Course in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) in June 2015. 



What did you think about the Consepsys course? How did it help you in your current role and career development?


It helped me to summarize and structure all knowledge I had and provided me with a lot of useful work tools.


For instance, I have learned how to organise and distribute tasks in a proper way as well as how to calculate the costs for the tasks. 


It helps me to plan the Document Control budget for the year now. 


The Skills Matrix discussed during the course is also one of the interesting tools. It shows me what kind of gaps I have to plan training.


So, it doesn’t matter how experienced you are, as you always find something interesting and useful for your career in the course.
