Addressing the high level skills demands of the evolving Mexican and Colombian oil and gas markets

14:30 - 15:30

Mexico and Colombia’s oil and gas industries are rapidly developing, accompanied by a demand for high level local skills.

In both countries, the context of an evolving production and commercial landscape, including the emergence of shale and deep water activity, and the introduction of new international investors, calls for an assessment on future skills, education and training requirements.

There is great potential for these two Latin American hydrocarbon nations to collaborate on human capital development and technical capabilities together with international partners.

Specifically, this solution focused workshop will cover:

  • Quantifying skills requirements in specialist areas and identifying key priority areas for education and training
  • Partnership opportunities for international education and training institutions
  • Potential areas of collaboration between the Mexican and Colombian governments and industry
  • Making education partnerships meaningful – how to develop practical outcomes from international university and partnerships
  • Mechanisms for achieving closer coordination between government and industry and among the IOCs
  • Defining action points ahead of Getenergy VTEC Americas 2017
