The two-year training programme for 11 engineers at the Saipem yard, Port Harcourt, Rivers State has been concluded by Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNI).

Speaking at the graduation ceremony, the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Engr. Simbi Wabote commended Total for ensuring that the youths received qualitative training, adding that the company had become a veritable partner of the Board in the implementation of the Nigerian Content Act.

The Executive Secretary who was represented by the Manager, Human Capacity Development, NCDMB, Engr. Maurice Iwhiwhu Kelly also hailed TUPNI and Saipem for their commitment towards the Board’s Human Capacity Development Initiative (HCDI).

Mr Kelly congratulated the trainees on the successful completion of their programme and commended the zeal they displayed during the training. He charged the participants to use the skills they have acquired in their future endeavours.

In his comments, the Nigerian Content Coordinator, Egina Project, TUPNI, Mr Adedamola Adenubi, commended the Board’s dedication to human capacity development in the oil and gas industry. He encouraged the participants to remain good ambassadors of the project. The programme produced seven Installation Engineers, two Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Engineers and two Fabricating Engineers.
