Burhani Engineers (BEL) has affirmed its readiness to deliver standardized innogrative solutions and expert application knowledge to help Kenya’s oil and gas sector to increase productivity, efficiency and enable growth.

The Engineering firm is set to leverage on different flow technologies to improve efficiency and operational cost within the sector and other extractives.

Mr. Zoher Pirbhai, Managing Director Burhani Engineers Ltd affirms said that the company wants to support the industry’s growth by building capacity to boost their competitiveness as Kenya begins the Early Oil Pilot Scheme (EOPS)

“With the appropriate flow technology in place, the industry will be able to tighten control, maximize output, and increase efficiency with expert application advice, operations insight,” said Mr. Zoher Pirbhai.

Zoher noted that Kenya faced key skills deficiencies in most sectors of the oil and gas industry and it was prudent to invest more in specialized skills He was speaking in the just concluded Kenya Pipeline Company Limited- owned Morendant Institute of Oil and Gas (MIOG) 1st Conference themed on ‘Opportunities for Capacity Building in the Oil and Gas sector and other extractives in Eastern Africa

The Managing Director further highlighted how the company, through a strategic partnership with Emerson, a global player delivers standardized innovative solutions and expert application knowledge to help the sector to reduce risk, increase reliability, and improve operational performance with best-in-class technologies and services.

Dr. Jonah Aiyabei, Director Morendant Institute of Oil and Gas disclosed that the recent discoveries of oil and gas reserves in Eastern Africa have the potential to transform these economies to scale new heights.

Aiyabei however, disclosed that this potential cannot be exploited when Kenya is still importing pipeline welders and coaters. “Lack of requisite skills for the oil and gas sector remains a major challenge as the country and the region prepare to exploit the newfound oil and gas resources.

Joe Sang, the Managing Director at Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC), said that demand for skilled workers in the oil sector is set to increase given that Kenya plans to expand its pipeline network from 1,300 km to 2,700 km, coupled with the expected deployment of pipelines in Uganda, Tanzania, and South Sudan.

The aim of the conference that brought together experts in oil, gas, and extractives from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Australia and Canada was to enable Kenya to formulate interventions to enhance the capacity of its workforce and to exploit emerging opportunities within the oil, gas and extractives sector.
