Since 2012, we have been working on the development of Programme 200, a long-term training programme for Mozambican technical profiles in various professional areas related to the hydrocarbon exploration and production sector. The project consists of several modules that include the following:
- Oil & Gas and HSE training
- specific technical training
- CMS (a system for evaluating the skills acquired during training)
- an internship (on-the-job training)
- language support through an English course.
To date, we are nearing completion of the programme to train 204 young Mozambicans, who have had the opportunity to gain experience in Italy, the UK, Indonesia, Congo, South Korea, South Africa and Tunisia. During the training, the trainees had the opportunity to learn more about matters relating to the Drilling, Production, G&G, Reservoir, Operation, Marine, HSE, HR, ICT, Legal, Engineering and Medical divisions. The group attended theoretical and practical classes in Mozambique, at our offices and facilities abroad and on the Coral FLNG ship under construction in South Korea, learning the basics of each discipline and improving their ability to work independently. During the programme, some of them got the opportunity to take a Master’s course abroad (the MEDEA Master’s, HSE and Integrated Geoscience, Engineering and Geology). There are currently 8 trainees involved in the on-the-job training programme at the ERB office in Maputo and 40 Coral South trainees are undergoing training with the Operations Department (OJT abroad) and at our offices in Maputo.
