Schlumberger to employ 1,000 Emiratis as part of ADNOC programme
Recruit and invest in the training of Emiratis for the company's oil and gas services business.
Schlumberger signed an agreement with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC, to support its In-Country Value, ICV, Programme, which is designed to catalyse socio-economic development, improve knowledge-transfer and generate jobs for UAE nationals, Wam reported on Wednesday.
Through participation in ADNOC's ICV Programme, Schlumberger plans to recruit and invest in the training of UAE nationals for the company's oil and gas services business. Schlumberger has the ambition to increase its Emirati workforce, with the potential of up to 1,000 new job hires, driven by the company's existing businesses as well as further expansions.
At the signing ceremony, Al Shamsi said, "We are pleased to see that Schlumberger shares our vision to create, unlock and maximise value for the benefit of the UAE. Through our In-Country Value Programme, we will deepen our collaboration to expand employment and talent development opportunities for UAE nationals, helping to drive the UAE's socio-economic growth and development for many years to come."
Mirdad, in turn, commented, "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."
Since the launch of ADNOC's In-Country Value programme in January 2018, Schlumberger has maintained a leading position in both its commitment and investment of local content.
The agreement was signed by Ghassan Mirdad, President, Eastern Middle East at Schlumberger, and Rashed Saud Al Shamsi, Director, Business and Commercial Support Directorate at ADNOC, and witnessed by Dr. Sultan bin Ahmad Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, and Olivier Le Peuch, Schlumberger CEO.
