towards an oil school in this new producing country – La Nouvelle Tribune

While the Niger prepares to enter the international scene as an oil producer, the country faces a pressing need for skilled labor to fully exploit the employment opportunities created by this booming sector. In response to this crucial need, the Nigerien Minister of Higher Education, Saïdou Mamadou, inaugurated this Friday, May 17, a new school specializing in training for oil and gas professions.

This university establishment, attached to theAndré Salifou University of Zinderstands out for its comprehensive educational offering, including training at the level bachelor’s, master’s and engineering degrees. Designed to meet the demands technical, scientific and professional of the oil industry, the school aims to prepare a new generation of Nigerien professionals capable of actively contributing to the development of the national oil sector.

The inauguration of this school marks an important step in Niger’s strategy to take advantage of its petroleum resources. It is part of a series of government initiatives aimed at strengthening local capacities. At the beginning of the year, the Nigerien government signed an agreement with the company West African Oil Pipeline Company. She oversaw the construction of the pipeline Niger-Benin. This agreement includes the implementation of an ambitious training program, allowing Nigerien students to train in Southwest Petroleum University in China.

The creation of this specialized school is a direct response to the challenges posed by the marketing of Nigerien oil. By providing quality education adapted to the needs of the industry, Niger is giving itself the means to develop robust local expertise and reduce its dependence on foreign skills. This initiative is also seen as an engine of economic development, capable of generating qualified jobs and stimulate growth in other related sectors.

The Niger-Benin pipeline, which entered service a few weeks ago, is another centerpiece of Niger’s oil strategy. The infrastructure will allow the country to transport its oil to international markets, thus opening new economic perspectives. The training program associated with this project aims to ensure that Nigerian students have the necessary skills to actively participate in this new era of the national oil industry.

By investing in education and professional training, Niger is showing its determination to transform its oil potential into a tangible and lasting reality. The authorities hope that these efforts will contribute to better management of resources, reduction in unemployment and a general improvement in the standard of living of Nigeriens.
