Youth & Careers

GOSHEN Kili, 24, is one of six Oil Search graduate engineers selected for training at the INSTEP Petronas training facility in Malaysia.
Kili graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Technology and joined Oil Search in 2016.
“As a graduate mechanical engineer with the Oil Search Reliability and Surveillance team, I was able to work on several equipment reliability improvement projects which at some stage had me perform the role of project coordinator,” Kili said.
“With such exposure and hands-on equipment and plant maintenance tasks, I was able to build my confidence and develop my skills and knowledge in a culturally diverse working environment. The graduate development programme at Oil Search has given me the best opportunities and now with this new training programme, I couldn’t be more thrilled.
INSTEP Petronas is a specialised 200-acre oil and gas technical training facility in Malaysia. It consists of six academies with training facilities covering drilling, oil and upstream and downstream gas facilities.
Engineers cover several disciplines, including petroleum, electrical, process and mechanical.
It is very important for them to have a common inter-disciplinary base in order to understand each other’s specialities as well as the production and maintenance disciplines. This holistic understanding will enable them to integrate well with the engineering and production teams.
Oil Search managing director Peter Botten said an added benefit of the programme was the international experience and
exposure “we can give the graduates at this early stage in their careers”.
