Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for cooperation in the field of training between Enppi and the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC).
The MoU was signed by Mohamed Abdelaziz, Chairman of Enppi, and Jamal Essa Al Loughani, OAPECs Secretary-General.
Following the signing, El Molla confirmed that the MoU comes within the framework of the Ministry’s strategy and its keenness to open new horizons for fruitful and continuous cooperation between Egyptian petroleum companies and international organizations to exchange technical expertise in all fields of petroleum industries to achieve the desired integration.
Meanwhile, Al Loughani explained in his speech that continuous training is the main building block that contributes to the development of the petroleum industry. Since last year, OAPEC has coordinated with several parties to hold many training courses, including a distinguished training course in coordination with Enppi Company, in November 2022.
Abdelaziz noted that the MoU aims to establish mechanisms to strengthen and consolidate cooperation relations between the two parties in a way that contributes to developing the capabilities of specialized scientific cadres in the member states of the organization. This involves exchanging technical expertise in all fields of petroleum industries, and developing technical and administrative capabilities.
Following the signing, El Molla honored Mohamed Ali Sadiq, the Egyptian researcher in energy and environmental affairs and the winner of the 2020 OAPEC prize, for his research related to the integration between renewable energy and the oil and gas industry.
