Otri Opens National Center for Training Technicians with USD 12-Million Cost
The center is established by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources in cooperation with the Global Petrovac Company to host 120 trainees per year.
The center aims at training maintenance and operation members of newly-graduated engineers and technicians for qualifying cadres to work in the gas factories, refineries and oil establishments to meet the needs of the oil and gas industries and the new projects.
Later, Otri visited the site of Hayyan Gas Factory of Hayyan Petroleum Company , a joint company between the General Petroleum Establishment and the Croatian INA-Industrija Nafte Company.
The geological gas reserves at those sites reached 28 billion cubic meters, 21 of which are reproducible.
There are also oil and condensed gas and oil reserves estimated at 34 million barrels. The design capacity of Hayyan Gas Factory amounts to 4 million cubic meters of crude gas to produce 3.7 million cubic meters of clean processed gas, 12, 000 barrels of oil and condensed gas and 180 tons of domestic gas.
The project is to be operated at the beginning of 2011, knowing that the overall costs of INA on the project surpassed 1 USD billion.
''Syria's gas production reached 32 million cubic meters per day, which indicates that we are moving towards self-sufficiency to meet our gas needs, mainly in power-generating stations and industrial cities,'' Premier Otri said.
He described the training centers opened in Syria as an important bridge to move from theories to practical application.
