Dans le cadre de la formation « Oil and Gas awareness course », nous avons accueilli cette semaine les cadres de la Direction de l’Environnement et des Etablissements Classés (DEEC) ainsi que les administrations partenaires. Cette formation organisée par BP s’inscrit dans le renforcement de capacités des membres du comité technique en charge des évaluations sociales et environnementales. Elle a abordé entre autres thématiques : les fondamentaux de l’industrie du pétrole et du gaz, le forage et la complétion, les opérations « subsea », les procédés de traitement, l’utilisation d’un simulateur de forage et des visites virtuelles des installations pétrolières et gazières avec différentes technologies. Un programme très riche qui permet de prendre en charge de manière spécifique les préoccupations de ces acteurs impliqués directement ou indirectement dans la gestion de nos ressources pétrolières et gazières.
