1 Min Read


Management of the Port Harcourt and Warri refineries has applauded the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) for its welders’ training programme.

Head, Press and External Relations of the PTDF, Mr. Kalu Otisi said this during a statement in Abuja, and emphasized on the importance of welders to the operations of the country’s refineries.

He said that some oil companies operating in Nigeria had started engaging the services of PTDF trained welders for the execution of their oil and gas service contracts which is as a result of the exposure given to skills and competencies of the welders through PTDF organised Post Training Attachment (PTA) programme,

Speaking on the PTA programme, he noted that it is a practical on-the-job internship scheme that prepares beneficiaries for absorption into the industry adding that the programme was currently on-going in the major refineries of Port-Harcourt, Kaduna and Warri.

Otisi explained that he was encouraged by the skills displayed by the beneficiaries under the PTA which made the management of the refining company to request for an increase in the number of PTDF trained welders for enrolment into the PTA Scheme.

Highlighting some of the beneficiaries of the programme, he said that some of the trainees have also been employed by big companies one of which is Ibrahim Mohammed, who was employed by Dorman Long Engineering Limited, oilfield equipment, marine structural engineering and Fabrication Company.
