TOTALTEC a Finalist for Oilfield Service Company of the Year
November 19th, 2019 – Georgetown, Guyana – TOTALTEC Oilfield Services is delighted to announce their shortlisting for Oilfield Services Company of the Year at this year’s prestigious World Energy Capital Assembly Awards to be held in London, 4th Dec 2019.
The Oil and Gas Council Awards program represents a global benchmark of excellence for those working in the oil and gas industry which honours and recognises 12 individuals and companies who have been at the heart of frontier plays and some of the world’s largest discoveries. These executives, and their businesses, have grown economies, created employment, and continue to change the face of the oil & gas industry.
From that charter, it is clear why Guyana would feature prominently in these awards, and TOTALTEC would be included. Since its founding in 2016, the TOTALTEC purpose remains the same; to make Guyana an exceptional example of what the discovery of oil can do for a people and a country, by building capacity, and supporting partner companies to deliver to their highest performance standards.
Over 300 Guyanese have been trained to international standards to date in its two academies – the International Petroleum & Maritime Academy (IPMA, ‘The Academy’) and the Marine Safety Training Institute (MSTI). TOTALTEC is committed to equipping Guyanese men and women with the knowledge, skills, and culture they need to enter, and one day lead, the oil and gas industry in Guyana.
TOTALTEC is also active in forming partnerships and building facilities to support the new industry. The first partnership example was its involvement in Guyana Shore Base, Inc. (GYSBI), which now supports ExxonMobil operations, employing over 300 Guyanese, who got their start in the industry via the TOTALTEC Academy training, scholarships and apprenticeships. This was followed by assisting a local company in getting established for the provision of lifting equipment and testing services, critical to the industry and an ideal starting point for a local company. TOTALTEC is now fabricating modular office and camp facilities, enabling companies to build and establish local capacity faster.
Says Lars Mangal, TOTALTEC CEO, “Being one of four finalists in this prestigious event is an honour for TOTALTEC. It is worth noting the three other companies competing for the award - TechnipFMC, SBM Offshore, and Schlumberger - are among the largest industry service companies in the world, as well as of those active in Guyana offshore development. While they are proactive in helping to develop Guyanese, and orders of magnitude larger than TOTALTEC, we believe our purpose, pioneering success, and promise for the future gives us reason to be considered for the award.”
The World Capital Assembly Awards will take place in London on 3-4 December, 2019, and bring together over 650 executives from across the industry. Participating companies include First Reserve, Glencore, IFC, Kerogen, L1 Energy, Eco Atlantic, Schlumberger, BP, Shell, ExxonMobil and more.
