Second safety-training provider approved in Nigeria


cegelec_ogere_center_400International oil and gas skills organization, OPITO, is making Nigeria safer for oil and gas workers with the accreditation of a second training company. Cegelec Oil and Gas, based in Ogere, Nigeria, has secured approval from OPITO to deliver mechanical, electrical and instrument training to standards recognized by the oil and gas industry globally. A not-for-profit organization, OPITO is wholly owned by the oil and gas industry and responsible for ensuring it has a safe, skilled and competent workforce. The organization develops the highest training standards to improve offshore safety. With operations centers in Aberdeen, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and Houston, OPITO delivers standards, qualifications and workforce development frameworks used by employers in 42 countries worldwide. Cegelec Oil and Gas has been initially approved to deliver Mechanical, Electrical and Instrument and Control Level 2 training and expects to conduct additional OPITO-approved courses going forward. The training provider is currently in the process of seeking OPITO accreditation for Process Operations training for production trainees. “Africa’s proven oil reserves have grown by nearly 120% in the past 30 years and it’s estimated that at least another 100 billion bbl are yet to be discovered. If the continent’s oil producing countries are expected to meet these targets, they need a highly skilled and safe workforce,” said David Doig, OPITO group chief executive officer. “Whether a school leaver in Nigeria or an existing offshore worker in Kuala Lumpur, individuals will now be able to gain qualifications in processing hydrocarbons, electrical and mechanical maintenance and instrumentation and controls which will be recognized by oil and gas companies worldwide.”
