“The actual hands-on is the best part of this training. This will help us building capabilities to start an oil and gas industry in our country, because Mozambique LNG it is one of the first projects, is got to be successful because is going to laid the foundation for oil and gas in Mozambique for many years to come.”

Another participant Reinalda Lucas says:

“This training will be useful to help in the development of my country and I will be able to share the knowledge acquired during the training with the groups that will make part of the TSP training program in future. In addition, this course will allow me to grow up professionally.”
