ADMA-OPCO as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility initiated this project to support the country's vision for Emiratization with competent workforce. This project develops competent Fresh Operators & Technicians (O&T's) to accelerate the quality emiratization process and to meet the major business challenges ahead.
ADMA-OPCO constructed 4 Process Training Pilot Plants (PTPP's) at ADNOC Technical Institute (ATI) to provide safe environment allowing O&T's to carry out their routine activities on fully functional plants safely.
These plants cover the following:
Wellhead plant including multi-phase flow meter for well testing and pig launcher
Oil and Gas separation, desalting and crude stabilization plant
Gas sweetening unit
Gas Glycol Dehydration Unit
The above plants are equipped with control room / Distributing Control System (DCS) operations with defined specific On-Job-Training (OJT) tasks for all trades viz Mechanical, Control, Electrical and Operators.
ADMA-OPCO introduces this unique project as
An additional opportunity and new methodology to develop ADNOC / OPCO'S O&T's with high competency in optimized development duration
An evidence of partnership empowerment between ADMA-OPCO as end user and ATI as vocational training providers
To meet the business demands like high skillset and the manpower required to work with the new projects facilities in all OPCO's
This Innovative solution will improve the skills of the front-line workforce through the enhanced development syllabus of the vocational education and focusing on the hands-on-skills of the graduates prior joining their employers
Following the successful commissioning in February 2015; ADMA-OPCO during the 1st year of utilization has achieved the following:
Developed 70 competent technician's in an optimized duration
Carried out 40 female engineers plant induction without sending them to the offshore platforms
14 electrical technicians completed two OJTs advanced troubleshooting course.
Completed the summer internship of UAE's universities students
The O&T's are benefited to carry out the routine activities similar to the actual plants safely and effectively.
It is the 1st time across Middle East and perhaps the world too:
Build PTPPs for gas sweetening and glycol dehydration operations.
Built such plants at vocational training institute
Configurations of the plants are much higher than similar plants installed across the world including; USA, Russia, Syria, Algeria & Nigeria.
