  • I worked in Mobil Producing Nigeria now Exxon Mobil,one day training is a slap in the face for understanding oil and gas operations.You need technical training and on the job training to fully understand the operations.I commend the effort but you need a curriculum and about at least 1 week intensive training to get the students better prepared.
