Bechtel announced its selection to provide Commissioning Training Services to Petrojet to develop its Commissioning Department.

This is an ideal agreement with a local partner to provide capacity building of Petrojet’s workforce, which will enhance its capabilities in Commissioning, the company statement elaborated.

The signing of the agreement was attended by the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla. The agreement was signed by Petrojet Chairman Waleed Lotfy and Bechtel Egypt Country Manager Karim El-Dessouky.

The training will help enhance Petrojet’s Commissioning team such that it meets Bechtel’s international standards. This will also assist Petrojet in creating a full set of Commissioning procedures that will be followed by the company for any future project. It is expected that the fully-trained Petrojet Commissioning team will provide support to Bechtel to execute Commissioning activities on the Red Sea Suez Petro-Refinery project.

Bechtel, Enppi, and Petrojet have established a consortium to execute Africa’s largest Petrochemicals complex.

“We are delighted to provide this service to our partner Petrojet and continue our support for the Ministry of Petroleum’s Modernization Program. Egypt continues to be a key regional market for our Energy business and is at the core of our long-term strategic plan,” El-Dessouky said.
