    “I am personally proud of the resilience I have seen from our colleagues and business partners in BSJV, especially in overcoming the challenges faced during the COVID-19 outbreak. Many of you were among the energy frontliners who have had to make difficult compromises and be away from your families for long periods of time. I’d like to thank you for your selfless service and hard work to continue powering the nation,” said Johnsgaard-Lewis.
