The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) has concluded arrangements to sponsor 22 young persons for training in China. The trainees are expected to acquire critical skills needed to operate and maintain machines that will be used at the pipe mill being set up at Polaku, Bayelsa State by Mainland Pipe Mill Nigeria with the support of the NCDMB.

The trainees will travel before the end of August to the facilities of Baoji Petroleum Steel Pipe Company Limited (BSG) located at Baoji in Shaanxi Province, China. There, they will undergo 45 days of training.

The programme is part of the Board’s efforts to give Nigerians critical skills required in the oil and gas industry. The trainees, who will return with a highly specialised skillset, scarce in Nigeria, will be assessed during and after the programme and the best performers placed in existing pipe mills in Nigeria for further on-the-job training ahead of the start of the Polaku pipe mill. A representative of the Board is expected to accompany them to the trip.
