President Mahama as part of his visit to France called on Dassault Systems and GNPC-Techniq companies based in France to commend them on the vital roles they are playing in Ghana’ oil and gas sector over the years.
While Dassault Systems had been engaged in training and general consultancy for the mining, oil and gas, water and eco-culture in Ghana, Techniq, on the other hand, had been working with the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) in the areas of oil and gas.
According to Ghana News Agency, President Mahama expressed satisfaction with their intervention in gold, oil and gas co-operation, adding;“Ghana is a developing country with attendant urbanisation challenges and we will, therefore, want you to do the simulation for us to solve those challenges in the country.”
Mr Bernard Charles, Chief Executive Officer of Dassault Systems, who explained the company’s activities to President Mahama, said apart from Ghana, the outfit had over the years co-operated with 40 other countries. “Over 200 people have been trained in software in Ghana each year to increase profitability, mining safety and general good working conditions in the mining and oil and gas industry,” he said
