The Executive Secretary Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Engr. Simbi Kesiye Wabote has commended the outgoing President of the Oil and Gas Trainers Association of Nigeria (OGTAN), Dr Mayowa Afe for bringing vibrancy to the association and recording notable achievements in the past four years in office.
Wabote gave the commendation on Tuesday when he received the OGTAN President at the Board’s liaison office
Some of the projects initiated by the OGTAN president include categorization of training companies, institution of quality among the members, registration of new members and provision of specialized trainings for the members.
The Executive Secretary challenged the incoming President of the association to sustain some of the current initiatives with a view to firmly position OGTAN and impact positively on the oil and gas sector.
He maintained that some of the ongoing programmes would need to be prioritised and brought to fruition so that OGTAN can grow into a formidable organisation that would add immense value to the oil and gas sector.
He also advised oil trainers to brace up to energy transition and prepare their members to be relevant in the emerging energy dynamics.
Wabote stated that the Board had built an enviable reputation for delivering on any project it was involved in. He cited an example with the development of modular refinery which was previously unachievable until the Board partnered with Waltersmith Petroman Ltd to deliver proof of concept with the modular refinery at Ibigwe, Imo State.
The outgoing OGTAN President lauded the NCDMB for the unflinching support it provided the association over the years. He stated that the incoming president of the group had been fully involved in the affairs of the association and would be supported to deliver on ongoing and new programmes of the group.
