14 October 2014

Eighteen Mozambicans will benefit from a training course on the natural gas industry, taking place in South Korea, the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) said in a statement.

The course, organised by KOICA in partnership with the South Korean state-owned Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas), runs from 19 October to 7 November and aims to give an overview of the development of the natural gas industry and provide basic technical expertise on natural gas and related facilities.

The course is also intended to provide participants who work for the Ministries of Energy and Mineral Resources, oil and gas company Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) and the National Petroleum Institute (INP), appropriate guidelines to perform good risk management of existing gas projects.

Also in South Korea, KOICA will sponsor a course on regional development policy for senior managers allocated to institutions under the Ministry of State Administration in the province and city of Maputo.

The course will run for two weeks (29 October to 12 November) with, among others, with the participation of managers from the districts of Boane, Manhiça and Namaacha. (macauhub/MZ)
