The objective of the Academy is to develop young Emiratis and provide them with opportunities for employment within the oil and gas industry as production operators and maintenance technicians.

Our graduates are trained and mentored by experienced oil and gas professionals. They acquire not only the skills, knowledge and safety awareness, but also the confidence that will enable them to work successfully in various oil and gas environments.

To date the Academy has seen 104 Emirati operators and technicians graduate. All the graduates have been employed by Total ABK, ADMA-OPCO, ADOC, BUNDUQ and others.

Total ABK is proud to contribute positively to the development of Emiratis and provide them with employment opportunities.
