MODEC training not a tea party – Egbert Faibille to FPSO trainees

Acting Chief Executive Officer of Petroleum Commission, Egbert Faibille Jnr has admonished nominees of the maiden Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) training organised by MODEC Production Services Ghana JV Ltd. to maximize the opportunity and learn in order to be game changers when the programme ends.

Speaking at the official inauguration of the training programme at the Labadi Beach Hotel, Mr. Faibille Jnr commended the provider of floating solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry for the initiative which will strengthen the operations capacity of Ghanaians.

“… For the Ghanaians/MODEC staff who will have the privilege to go on this training programme I must say that it is not a tea party. It is an opportunity for you to increase your respective individual and also collective capacities on O & M with respect to FPDO operations so that when you are back here, whatever knowledge that you acquired/ whatever was imparted you will be able to also impart to others.” He noted.

He further told the nominees that his outfit will be monitoring the progress of the training as well as theirs so that when their expertise is required, they will be consulted.

“We at the commission will monitor this exercise, and indeed we have a database where on your return we will feed your data into so that in the next foreseeable future; depending on where you find yourself in the industry if such issues come up and we go into that database and find that five or ten years ago you had the benefit of this training from MODEC and so we can pluck you from wherever you are to come and work on others, it will not be out of place.”

MODEC Production Services Ghana JV Ltd. in partnership with MODEC do Brazil have selected some 16 Ghanaians to be trained for six months in Brazil on FPSO operations in order to help the maintenance of the facility.

MODEC has been providing competitive floating solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry and is recognized as a leading specialist for Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels, Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessels, Floating LNGs (FLNGs), Tension Leg Platforms (TLPs), and Production Semi-submersibles.
