Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Allison-Madueke, has commended the Total Group in Nigeria for taking its job recruitment drive to the just-concluded Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), which held in Houston, Texas, United States of America, from Monday, May 2 to Thursday, May 5, 2011.

The commendation came for Total Upstream Companies in Nigeria on Day 1 of the Conference after the Deputy Managing Director and the Head of Delegation to OTC 2011, Mr Charles Ngoka, had briefed the Minister on the objectives of having a "Job Fair" at the Conference.

Accompanying the Minister to the Total stand were the Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr Austen Oniwon; the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Mr Ernest Nwapa, and some top officials of the Corporation.

Mrs Allison-Madueke said with the job recruitment initiative, Total had shown foresight because it is in tandem with the Federal Government's plan to boost the human resource base available for the industry in Nigeria.

At a dinner held the same day in honour of Total's delegates and guests at the OTC 2011, Mr Ngoka again stressed the importance of the recruitment drive. He declared to the guests: "One of the objectives of our participation in this year's OTC is to showcase Total's projects. Our USAN (Floating, Production, Storage & Offloading) FPSO is on its way to Nigeria. The next project we expect would be EGINA. We are focusing on HR requirements this time for the manning of our projects and fields.

In compliance with the Nigerian Content Act, the company intends to engage more qualified and experienced Nigerians to work on these projects. For this year's OTC, we have our HR teams who are working hard to recruit experienced Nigerians, including those in the Diaspora. We are also in our normal recruitment process, engaging young Engineers and Geoscientists as well as people of different support disciplines."

Also at the conference, Mr Ngoka, on Wednesday, May 3, received, on behalf of Total Exploration & Production (E&P) in Nigeria, the "Appreciation Award" of the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN).

The Association cited that the Award was "For the promotion of growth of Nigeria Companies and Entrepreneurs in the Petroleum Industry through Sponsorship of Nigeria's Participation at OTC 2011".
