OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

TOTALTEC Oilfield Services Guyana has confirmed that the first group of successful graduates from its inaugural Oilfield Safety Training and Operator Programme have been qualified and joined Schlumberger, a world-leading oilfield service company.

“This is a true breakthrough for Guyana, our Guyanese graduates, and our TOTALTEC Academy. Our management team and international instructors delivered a world-class training programme to the highest international standards. These graduates will be foundational to Schlumberger establishing operations and a state of the art support facility in Guyana.” commented Lars Mangal, President and CEO of TOTALTEC.

“As a Guyanese citizen, this is a proud moment for me personally. I remember joining Schlumberger in 1990 as a trainee, and the incredible culture of safety it gave me, and we have now given that opportunity to our graduates. My first assignment was in the freezing winter of the Netherlands, followed by the Sahara Desert of Libya; from one extreme to another. An oilfield career is full of surprises. You start at the bottom and work your way up, as will our new graduates.”

The TOTALTEC graduates successfully completed the 9-week intensive safety and operator training programme, equipping them with all the basic safety and operational skills and knowledge to begin a career in the emerging Guyana oil and gas industry.

TOTALTEC will commence the third safety and operational training program with 26 Guyanese recruits on August 20, including the first 10 female recruits.
