West African Ventures (WAV), an Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Marine Charter Services provider for the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry, has expended over $550,000 to train 26 young Nigerians in partnership with Chevron and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, under the Sonam Development Project Pipeline and Okan Pig Receiver Platform Transport and installation contract (SONAM/NC HCD).
  
The training was an intensive 20 months activity, from August 2016 to 20th of April, 2018 and was designed to achieve competence building (Classroom Training) as well as on‐the‐job training in order to raise the capacity of young Nigerian intending to work in the Oil and Gas industry.
  
The plan was put in place to further ensure effective implementation of the National Content Development Monitoring Boards (NCDMB) Human Capacity Development plan in the course of executing the Sonam Development Project Pipeline and Okan Pig Receiver Platform Transport and installation contract. 
  
West African Ventures (WAV) Deputy Managing Director, Michael Amaeshike, at the close-out ceremony held in Lagos said the categories of professionals considered included graduates, artisans, and of course tutors selected in line with the requirement of the NCDMB human capacity development guidelines.  
  
Amaeshike enthused that the training was also set up in partial fulfillment of the requirement of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act 2010, which demands provision of an additional human resources capacity development – for some categories of Nigeria citizenry outside the contractor personnel – in course of executing a major project.
  
The Deputy Managing Director said West African Ventures (WAV) went all out to train the lucky participants given its belief in retaining value in the country since the future of the sector lies in the hands of Nigerians who are attuned to development.
  
The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring, Engineer Simbi Wabote, represented by Engr. Maurice Iwhiwhu enthused that the training marks a water-shed in the delivery of the mandate of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board and praised West African Ventures and Chevron for providing a platform for the training and development of young Nigerians, while noting that this will go a long way in creating a sustainable industry.
