Signing of MoU between EMEPMI and INSTEP
On September 3, 2008, EMEPMI signed an MOU with the PETRONAS Institute of
Petroleum Technology (INSTEP) to develop a technician training curriculum
for Upstream Production Operations.
Zan Noor Ismail, Operations Manager, signed on behalf of EMEPMI while
Khairul Azman Yasin, PETRONAS Management Training Berhad CEO, signed on
behalf on INSTEP. Grace Choo, EMEPMI SHE Manager and M. Sazali Salim,
INSTEP General Manager witnessed the signing.
Since 2002, EMEPMI has been utilizing INSTEP facilities to train field
technicians. The MOU will expand this relationship for the benefit of
both parties as follows:
- INSTEP will gain access to proven training curriculum developed from
ExxonMobil’s worldwide vendor pool and calibrated against ExxoMobil
- EMEPMI will be able to leverage on INSTEP as a proven training
facility and training provider to help rebuild competency levels in
the current workforce as well as for training of new trainee intakes.
The signing of the MOU marks another milestone in the ExxonMobil and
PETROANS partnership. The training curriculum developed through this
partnership will contribute towards building a competent local workforce
not only for ExxonMobil but also for the Upstream Oil & Gas Industry in
(I thought EMEPMI had been sending technicians to be trained at INSTEP for a looooong time already.)
