TechnipFMC, ExxonMobil Guyana’s prime contractor for the engineering, manufacturing and delivery of the subsea production systems for the Liza Phase 1 project, is currently taking on its third class of local Guyanese engineers.
A release from ExxonMobil yesterday said that these new hires add to the multiple classes of Guyanese hired and trained since beginning work on the Liza Phase 1 Project.
The release said that TechnipFMC has hired a total amount of twenty seven Guyanese employees. All new employees undertake a 12 to 18 month apprentice programme before transitioning into operational teams that support ExxonMobil’s Guyana project activities offshore Guyana. Currently, eight employees are in training at TechnipFMC’s Brazil office in Rio de Janeiro and a new eight will begin their journey mid-February 2019 to become Technical Service Providers.
“TechnipFMC’s training, development and competency programs are a proven methodology to accelerate the development of technical personnel. They work in line with our own culture of safety and are commitment to operational excellence; ensuring that each employee works with a strong focus on safety”, said Rod Henson, Country Manager, ExxonMobil Guyana. “It is wonderful to see that we have two women in the upcoming training program. You serve as role models for others who may not have considered this a career path for females. At ExxonMobil, and I am sure I can say at TechnipFMC, we encourage all who have the interest and the capability to work towards making it a reality”, the release said.
