The first set of South Sudanese well production, oil and gas processing “Technical Assistance Training Programe” at Ogbele Production Facilities has ended.
The training lasted six months.
The four Engineers have returned home and the Niger Delta Exploration and Development (NDEP), the Nigerian company leading the assistance, expects the second batch of four Engineers to be in the country by mid-August 2017.
The programme is part implementation of the agreement between NDEP and Nile Petroleum Corporation (Nilepet), the South Sudanese state Hydrocarbon Company, to support the latter to monetize and commercialize all the gas resources in South Sudan as well as support it in production optimization and improved production in existing brown fields.
“We have exposed our business in Nigeria to human content development of South Sudanese”, declares Layiwola Fatona, NDEP’s Managing Director. “The next batch of engineers will participate in a more robust programe, as our 2017 Drilling campaign would have started with the mobilization of a rig in 2 weeks”.
