Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla and Siemens Energy CEO Christian Bruch witnessed the signing of an agreement at COP27 between the ministry and the global energy giant for training and building human capacities in the fields of decarbonization.
According to the agreement, Siemens Energy will work with the ministry to provide integrated training programs that combine theoretical and practical knowledge for the cadres of the Young and Middle Management Program, which is a part of the petroleum sector’s Modernization program. This will provide them with the necessary skills to achieve the goals of decarbonization strategies and implement future projects in this field.
The scope of the agreement includes training in the fields of decarbonization and hydrogen, in addition to practical training at Siemens Energy sites outside of Egypt throughout the year. The governance program for future women will also be presented to a number of female engineering cadres, as well as the technical programs to support the achievement of the objectives of this initiative.
The agreement was signed by Alaa Hagar, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources for Technical Office Affairs, Dietmar Siersdorfer, Middle East and UAE Managing Director at Siemens Energy, and Layla El Hares, Managing Director of Siemens Energy Egypt.
