LOCAL CONTENT RECRUITMENT, TRAINING, AND DEVELOPMENT
Local content requirements can represent opportunities and challenges for oil and gas companies. According to data, in about 20 years, most oil and gas will be produced and supplied by developing countries. With that in mind, most of the emerging economy’s governments have enacted laws and policies that enforce local content developments. Governments’ expectations with these regulations are to promote local enterprise development, create local job opportunities, and foster knowledge and technology transfer.

WE CAN HELP OVERCOME LOCAL CONTENT RECRUITMENT AND COMMUNITY INVESTMENT CHALLENGES
In Angola, Local Content requirements play a crucial role in the tendering process and contractual agreement. To participate in Oil and Gas Invitation To Tenders (ITT) leading to contractual agreements, companies must demonstrate they have local content development and local community investment plans in place, in full compliance with the Angolan Ministry of Petroleum’s requirements. Due to the scarcity of qualified job candidates on the Angolan market, many companies with no dedicated in-house recruitment or local community investment capabilities end up losing the opportunity to secure major projects.
