Operations and maintenance program
Our operations and maintenance program is targeted at recent school leavers looking for a long-term career in the LNG industry.
Papua New Guineans who have completed Year 12 Upper Secondary School studies in the previous five years are eligible to apply to the program.
Program participants are trained as operations and maintenance technicians to operate and maintain our facilities.
Successful applicants to the program spend 12 months completing oil and gas foundation skills and basic skills training at the LNG Plant. Following the basic skills training, the trainees are assigned their career skill area – operations, mechanical, electrical or instrument and undertake a 12-month advanced skills training program.
Upon completion of the advanced skills training, trainees are assigned to our operating facilities – the Hides Gas Conditioning Plant or LNG Plant – to commence facility specific training in their area of specialisation.
In 2016 we welcomed on board our fourth intake of operations and maintenance trainees, which together with previous intakes, makes a total of more than 210 young Papua New Guinean trainees - 25 percent of whom are women.
At the end of July 2016, over 120 trainees had progressed to various technician levels and continue to gain knowledge and experience to progress their careers in the LNG industry.
