Company has signed MoU with Adnoc to support its In-Country Value programme
Schlumberger has announced plans to increase its Emirati workforce by up to 1,000.
The company, the world’s leading provider of technology for reservoir characterisation, drilling, production, and processing to the global energy industry, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Adnoc to support its In-Country Value (ICV) programme, which is designed to catalyse socioeconomic development, improve knowledge-transfer and generate jobs for UAE nationals.
Ghassan Mirdad, president, Eastern Middle East at Schlumberger, said the agreement will see the company recruit and invest in training for UAE nationals for the company’s oil and gas services business.
“Schlumberger is committed to enabling regional efficiency and performance, while increasing local content in line with the strategic priorities of Adnoc and the UAE’s oil and gas industry,” he said.
The job creation is based on the company’s existing business and further expansions.
