SNOC, Petroleum Institute to collaborate on E&P
The agreement aims to exchange knowledge between the PI's research team and SNOC’s E&P experts and to provide Msc and PHD internship opportunities for the PI students
Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) and the Petroleum Institute (PI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to conduct research on its oil and gas exploration and production in Sharjah.
The agreement aims to exchange knowledge between the PI’s research team and SNOC’s E&P experts and to provide Msc and PHD internship opportunities for the PI students for research purposes, among other areas of collaboration such as summer internship.
“This MOU reflects the PI’s long-standing commitment to working with world-class organisations and identifying opportunities that strengthen the UAE’s human capital while helping those organisations improve their business results,” said Ebrahim Al Hajri, director of collaborations and external affairs. “We look forward to developing a rewarding and long-term partnership with the Sharjah National Oil Corporation, and working with them to ensure the UAE’s oil and gas sector includes the best talent.”
Masoud Al Hamadi, E&P manager, said, “SNOC, which operates mature gas fields in the emirate focusing on its producing assets and surface processing facilities, has now progressed to include more detailed evaluation of the subsurface away from the existing fields. Our collaboration with the Petroleum Institute will go a long way to helping deliver SNOC’s E&P vision to excel in all technical disciplines such as geo-science, petroleum engineering and R&D.”
