SIX Papua New Guinea engineers are taking a three-year petroleum technology course designed by Oil Search and the INSTEP Petronas training facility in Malaysia.
The total cost of their participation is more than K850,000.
Katherine Manus, Joshua Molli, Goshen Kili, Rex Nii, Joshua Giyomatala and Ryan Alo arrived in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia at the weekend. Oil Search managing director Peter Botten said: “Our oil and gas production provides the foundation for the company and underpins everything we do. Having a highly capable workforce contributes to the overall success and effectiveness of the company and ensures continued delivery of long-term value to all our stakeholders. I am delighted by this opportunity which will equip our graduates, who are our future leaders, with all the necessary skills and knowledge they need to safely drive our aspirations.”
The programme will give them a common inter-disciplinary base to foster interaction among the different engineering specialisations.
The training will be held at a 200-acre oil and gas technical training facility. It is run by six academies with training plants covering drilling, oil and gas upstream and downstream facilities.
Oil Search engineers cover several engineering disciplines such as petroleum, electrical, process and mechanical.
