Published 17.02.2016
AGR recently formed part of a UK delegation to Myanmar to support the country’s burgeoning oil and gas sector.

According to the Ministry of Energy, Myanmar has 104 oil and gas blocks, comprising 53 onshore and 51 offshore blocks.

The University of Yangon played host to a three-day workshop that included representatives from British Geological Society, Oxford University, Herriot Watt’s Institute of Petroleum Engineering, the business community and around 40 local geoscientists.

The delegation, led by the Energy Working Group at the British Chamber of Commerce, explored opportunities to support academic institutions within the Earth Sciences, and the development of skills across a number of disciplines that are required to realise the potential of the emerging Myanmar oil and gas industry.

Mark Bentley, AGR’s Training Director, (pictured below), said: “We’re very excited about the opportunity to be part of the delegation representing the industry. It’s not every day you have the chance to help build the expertise that will support the growth of an emerging international oil and gas industry.

Our background in skills development for both national oil companies and young industry professionals combined with our experience in contributing to the Petroleum Engineering MSc at The University of Aberdeen, positions us perfectly to support Myanmar as the country works to build an oil and gas knowledge pool that will attract international attention.”
