MB Petroleum Services continues focus on training of Omani students –
conducts 3 day training at SQU exhibition

MB Petroleum Services (MBPS) conducted a 3 day training session on Wireline services at the Sultan Qaboos University engineering exhibition recently. The MBPS Wireline services team participated in the exhibition held at the College of Engineering campus, using the MBPS mobile Wireline training facility.

This training session was open to all students for three days and was a huge success. The eagerness and enthusiasm to take advantage of such an opportunity was evident in the fact that the training center was full of students for the theory sessions early on. These sessions helped give them an insight into well completion and also provided a flavor of the wireline intervention processes. Mr. Mohammed Al Kharusi, Director of HR & IT at MB Holding commented: “It is part of our companies` mission, to serve the communities where we operate, which includes recruiting and training of local talent, and we will continue in the same direction with sincere dedication and responsibility.”
He further added “People have always been an essential asset to any business. The opportunity to nourish such assets at an early stage adds value and enhances their potential. This activity is part of our focus on training Omani youth and helping them further develop their potential.”

The students also had hands-on involvement with some of the common mechanical tools used in ‘downhole’ wireline application. “Our objective is to enlighten future engineers with a learning experience that will increase their enthusiasm towards this vocation and over time help the country rely on indigenous talent” Eamon Gorman, Group CEO, MB Petroleum Services was quoted as saying.

On the work deck of the school the attendees were also able to take part and witness some simulations of the tools performing the same functions as they would deep in the well.

Members of the management team of the College of engineering also visited the event and were highly impressed with the impact the training sessions had on the students. As expressed by Dr. Ali Salem Al Harthy, Dean at the College of Engineering, SQU: “I wish to convey my deep sense of gratitude to MB Petroleum Services as a company and to their senior management for helping us yet again motivate our students and expose them to such important and significant facets of technology and engineering.

They relished the opportunity and clearly voiced how the experience had helped them, expressing how pleased they were in having a company with the reputation of MBPS; take the time and effort to involve these budding engineers at SQU.
