Ghana’s growth potential attracts British training institution in oil and gas

Ghana’s growth potential as a new frontier in oil and gas has attracted one of the world’s leading training institutions in gas and oil, Lloyd’s Maritime Academy into the country.

Craig de Savoye, Business Development Manager, Corporate Training of Lloyd’s Maritime Academy and IBC Global Academy says in an exclusive interview with ghanabusinessnews.com that the Informa Plc institutions have been attracted to Ghana because of the country’s growth potential as a new frontier in the oil and gas industry that is going to transform the economy.

“It is going to provide a lot of interest globally amongst the  international oil companies and locally people will work their way to get into the industry, and it’s going to provide a lot of investment income,” he said.

de Savoye therefore, said Lloyd’s Maritime Academy is in Ghana to provide the training because of the need to develop capacity for both Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians for the oil and gas sector.

Lloyd’s is providing the training through its Ghanaian counterparts, Amitlaw Professional Development Centre (APDC), a sister company of Amitlaw Consulting – experts in maritime law, petroleum commodities and international trade and Amitlaw Shipbrokerage Company Limited.

The Centre is enrolling students for its internationally recognized hybrid Professional Diploma programmes in Oil and Gas, Shipping and Logistics. The training is a combination of online session provided by the Lloyd’s Maritime Academy (LMA) and the IBC Global Academy and classroom session to be provided by APDC.

He said, the emergence of the oil and gas industry, and the way the government has structured itself, its approach to the oil and gas industry, the strong background and other commodities that Ghanaians have are the attraction for Lloyd’s interest in Ghana.

According to de Savoye, the response from Ghanaians to the training opportunity that they are offering through APDC is overwhelming.

He said Lloyd’s will like to be the source of high level local talent for all the industries that are related to the oil and gas industry.

Asked what students of APDC should expect, he said “value and excellence.”

Graduates will be awarded the internationally recognized Professional Diploma in any of the following courses; Oil and Gas Management, Offshore oil and Gas Production, Terminal Management, Ship Management, Logistics Management and Ship Finance.
